Employing a large-scale behavioural experiment (N = 1,572), we test whether AI-generated advice can corrupt people . We further test whether transparency about AI presence, a commonly proposed policy, mitigates potentialharm of advice . Results reveal that AI’s corrupting force is as strong as humans’, even when they know the source of the advice . In fact, the corruptinging force of AI’s . corrupting . force is . as strongas humans’.
