Effects Of Anthropomorphism On Trust In Human-Robot Interaction, Keith R. Macarthur, William T. Shugars, Tracy L. Sanders, Peter A. Hancock

Robots are being integrated into everyday use, making the evaluation of trust in human-robot interactions (HRI) important to ensure their acceptance and correct usage (Lee & See, 2004; Parasuraman & Riley, 1997). Goetz, Kiesler, and Powers (2003) found that participants preferred robots with an anthropomorphic appearance appropriate for the social context of the task. This preference for robots with human-like appearance may be indicative of increased levels of trust and therefore, the present research evaluates the effects of anthropomorphism on trust.
Eighteen participants (Mage = 34.22, SDage = 10.55, n = 8 male, n =10 female) with subject matter expertise in ...


Perceptions Of Planned Versus Unplanned Malfunctions: A Human-Robot Interaction Scenario, Theresa T. Kessler, Keith R. Macarthur, Manuel Trujillo-Silva, Thomas Macgillivray, Chris Ripa, Peter A. Hancock Nov 2016

The present study investigated the effect of malfunctions on trust in a human-robot interaction scenario. Participants were exposed to either a planned or unplanned robot malfunction and then completed two different self-report trust measures. Resulting trust between planned and unplanned exposures was analyzed, showing that trust levels impacted by planned malfunctions did not significantly differ from those impacted by unplanned malfunctions. Therefore, it can be surmised that the methods used for the manipulation of the planned malfunctions were effective and are recommended for further study use.

When considering in-group vs. out-group concepts, certain degrees of human relationships naturally assume one of two categories. Roles such as immediate and extended family members and friends tend to fit quite nicely in the in-group category. Strangers, hired help, as well as acquaintances would likely be members of the out-group category due to a lack of personal relation to the perceiver. Though an out-group member may possess cultural, socioeconomic, or religious traits that an individual may perceive as in-group, the fact that they are an unknown stranger should immediately place them in the out-group. From [K1] this notion, it can ...
