Associate Professor Brandy Bessette-Symons co-authored an article titled “Uncanny but not confusing: Multisite study of perceptual category confusion in the Uncanny Valley” in the journal Computers in Human Behavior.  Android robots that resemble humans closely, but not perfectly, can provoke negative feelings of dislike and eeriness in humans (the “Uncanny Valley” effect). The article investigates whether category confusion between the perceptual categories of “robot” and “human” contributes to Uncanny Valley aversion. The results suggest category confusion does not explain the Uncanny Valley effect.
