New publication on "Perception and Evaluation in Human–Robot Interaction: The Human–Robot Interaction Evaluation Scale (HRIES)—A Multicomponent Approach of Anthropomorphism"


Congratulations to Prof. Gordon Cheng and his collaborators, their publication on "Perception and Evaluation in Human–Robot Interaction: The Human–Robot Interaction Evaluation Scale (HRIES)—A Multicomponent Approach of Anthropomorphism" is now published in the International Journal of Social Robotics.

Since present tools are not able to assess a sufficient part of the composite psychological dimensions involved in the evaluation of Human-Robot-Interaction, the article consolidates the lessons learned from three different studies and proposes a further developed questionnaire based on a multicomponent approach of anthropomorphism by adding traits from psychosocial theory about the perception of others and the attribution and deprivation of human characteristics: the de-humanization theory.
