Conferring Minds to Machines: a Deep Learning Approach to Mind Perception, Technology Attachment, and Trust

This research provides a novel approach to understand and model consumer smart-object relationships from customer reviews. We develop a state-of-the-art deep learning model to classify mind perception from unstructured text and demonstrate that the extent of mind perception successfully predicts consumers’ attachment to, trust in, and evaluation of smart objects.
