'Who's Johnny?' Anthropomorphic Framing in Human-Robot Interaction, Integration, and Policy

Kate Darling
2015 Social Science Research Network  
Based on a human-robot-interaction experiment conducted in our lab, this paper explores the effects of anthropomorphic framing in the introduction of robotic technology.  ...  As we increasingly create spaces where robotic technology interacts with humans, our tendency to project lifelike qualities onto robots raises questions around use and policy.  ...  We may find ourselves asking this question in the near future. Yet the health and education benefits we are seeing today predict great future possibilities.  ...
