“The age of augmented intelligence featured by artificial intelligence is about to begin. Big data will play a bigger role in driving the development of psychology. The traditional space of humans and the physical world will turn into a four-element space, which consists of humans, the physical world, intelligent machines and the virtual world. In this new four-element space, massive data indicate a variety of information on behaviors and psychology, directly affecting people’s decision-making process of creative thinking, innovation models, product personalization and so on. It is foreseeable that psychology, especially the psychology of decision making, will accelerate the transformation of innovation. ”
