Human Or Robot? the Uncanny Valley in Consumer Robots
Consumer robots are becoming increasingly human-like in their appearance. We study how human-likeness impacts consumers' comfort with robots in business settings. Increasing human-likeness initially decreases comfort, but past a certain threshold this relationship reverses. We discuss the role of human nature and species-ism in perceptions of highly human-like robots.
