Abstract

This paper discusses robots exhibiting "human" characteristics and the associated implications for anthropomorphism research. Section 1 discusses Haslam's\citeHaslam:2006aa model of dehumanization, which has been used to conceptualize anthropomorphism as the inverse of dehumanization. Section 2 provides examples of robots that exhibit the human characteristics in \citeHaslam:2006aa. Section 3 describes their theoretical and practical implications for HRI research.
