Abstract
"The eerie feeling attributed to human-looking robots and animated characters may be a key factor in our perceptual and cognitive discrimination of the human and humanlike. This study applies regression, the generalized linear model (GLM), factor analysis, multidimensional scaling (MDS), and kernel isometric mapping (Isomap) to analyze ratings of 27 emotions of 18 moving ¯gures whose appearance varies along a human likeness continuum. The results indicate (1) Attributions of eerie and creepy better capture our visceral reaction to an uncanny robot than strange. (2) Eerie and creepy are mainly associated with fear but also shocked, disgusted, and nervous. Strange is less strongly associated with emotion. (3) Thus, strange may be more cognitive, while eerie and creepy are more perceptual/emotional. (4) Human features increase ratings of human likeness. (5) Women are slightly more sensitive to eerie and creepy than men; and older people may be more willing to attribute human likeness to a robot despite its eeriness."
