The stereotype content model applied to human-robot interactions in groups


Abstract Stereotypes are a pivotal factor in determining our behavior towards robots. However, little is known about the underlining content of stereotypes towards these agents. Research has identified warmth and competence as two central dimensions of stereotype content around which people anchor their perception about others. Consequently, our goal with this study was to analyze in an entertainment group context, how autonomous robots, displaying high and low levels of competence and warmth, and different roles (opponent versus partner), are perceived in terms of warmth and competence and to what extent these variables affect users’ emotional responses and can be leveraged to predict future intention to work with robots. Additionally, we observed an effect of perceived warmth and competence in admiration, pity and contempt towards robots.
