Object-Oriented Anthropomorphism As a Mechanism For Understanding Ai

To understand the experience of smart objects, we propose object-oriented anthropomorphism as an alternative metaphor to human-centric anthropomorphism. Object-oriented metaphor allows consumers to translate data about an object’s behavior into a working model about how objects experience environments. A range of positive outcomes of object-oriented metaphors is proposed and tested.
