Abstract

This paper reports the results from two experiments, conducted in Japan and Australia, to examine people’s perception and trust towards an android robot. Experimental results show that, in contrast to popular belief, Australian participants perceived the robot more positive than Japanese participants. This is the first study directly comparing human perception of a physically present android robot in two different countries.
