The Uncanny Valley and the X-Axis Problem: A Novel Categorization of Robot Design in the Spectrum from Machine to Human

from: Eva Jahn  (TUM, MIRMI - Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence and FSU, IfKW - Institute for communication science, Jena)
Uncanny Valley, proposed by Japanese robotics expert Masahiro Mori (1970), is a controversial effect related to the design and likeability of robots. According to Mori, as similarity to humans increases, so should the perceived likeability and thus acceptance of robots. However, this is not consiste…
