Attitude Towards Humanoid Robots and the Uncanny Valley Hypothesis


The main aim of the presented study was to check whether the well-established measures concerning the attitude towards humanoid robots are good predictors for the uncanny valley effect. We present a study in which 12 computer rendered humanoid models were presented to our subjects. Their declared comfort level was cross-referenced with the Belief in Human Nature Uniqueness (BHNU) and the Negative Attitudes toward Robots that Display Human Traits (NARHT) scales. Subsequently, there was no evidence of a statistical significance between these scales and the existence of the uncanny valley phenomenon. However, correlations between expected stress level while human-robot interaction and both BHNU, as well as NARHT scales, were found. The study covered also the evaluation of the perceived robots’ characteristic and the emotional response to them.

The Effects of B2C Interaction on Customer Loyalty

trust in sellers. Wu and Hsing (2006) found that consumers’ perceived interaction shapes their attitudes and purchase behavior. Levy et al. (2011) proved that the interaction with consumers promoted by enterprise could help to increase the satisfaction and enjoyment of consumers, thereby improving its relationship marketing performance. Koufaris et al. (2001) believe that the degree of online interaction positively affects the consumers’ shopping pleasure and concentration of attention. This enjoyable experience helps to maintain a good relationship with

Understanding Big Data for Industrial Innovation and Design: The Missing Information Systems Perspective

regional and national policies aiming at promoting big data are to succeed. Such questions would bring clarity to a discussion, where there has been much confusion, misunderstanding, and opportunistic use of the term “big data” as a buzz word rather than a scientific one. Lazer et al. (2014) proposed in a very highly cited Science article in 2014 that there is a “big data hubris.” This refers to the implicit assumption that big data is a substitute for, rather than a supplement to, traditional data collection and analysis. They stress that foundational issues of

The Flemish Performance-based Research Funding System: A Unique Variant of the Norwegian Model

of the STEM journal landscape than with the publishing landscape of the SSH ( Bonaccorsi, 2018 ). The perceived unintended consequences of the PRFS have been stressed in particular in relation to violations of research integrity: if too much pressure is put on researchers, they might lose their integrity. Although this is a general and international concern, some have pinpointed blame in particular on the Flemish PRFS ( Cornelis, 2013 ). To the best of our knowledge, no evidence for this assertion has been produced, and cases of infringement of research integrity

Providing Research Data Management (RDM) Services in Libraries: Preparedness, Roles, Challenges, and Training for RDM Practice

“university/college,” “government agency,” “non-academic health sector,” and “others.” For this particular variable, we were interested in comparing participants from academic settings with those who were outside academia. The remaining two independent variables were levels of preparedness in providing RDM services and the degree of development that participants perceived that their institutional RDM services belonged. These two variables are related to RDM maturity ( Cox et al., 2017 ), which are good indicators of the differences in RDM services. The dependent variables
