Cultural Differences in Attitudes Towards Robots

  title={Cultural Differences in Attitudes Towards Robots},
  author={Christoph Bartneck},
This study presents the result of a cross-cultural study of negative attitude towards robots. A questionnaire was presented to Dutch, Chinese, German, Mexican, American (USA) and Japanese participants based on the Negative Attitude towards Robots Scale (NARS). The American participants were least negative towards robots, while the Mexican were most negative. Against our expectation, the Japanese participants did not have a particularly positive attitude towards robots.
