Two Minds Meeting in the Middle: How Humanlike Technologies Lead to Dehumanization
The current research explores how consumers’ experiences with humanlike technologies change their perceptions about humanness. We find that as people perceive technological products more humanlike (i.e., having more mind), they perceive and treat actual people as being more object-like: dehumanization. The assimilation of the two “minds” underlies the dehumanization.
