Robots in Society

We study social processes behind the acceptance of robots and artificial intelligence.

Robot acceptance and social processes in the era of emerging technologies

We use social media big data as well as experimental and longitudinal methods as part of our research. We produce novel empirical research on the social psychological processes involved in the acceptance of new generation robots and AI. We advance the social science research tradition by methodically broadening the ways to study the world between human and technology. Our research considers the future phenomena of a technologizing society at individual, community, and societal levels. The views of different stakeholders will be considered as part of the development of economically and socially sustainable solutions.

This project is part of Tampere University Emerging Technology Lab.
