We are happy to announce the launch of our new ABOT Database Website!

In addition to the major functionalities from the previous version, such as a downloadable robot information list with human-likeness scores, a preview of 200 robots, and a feature-based human-likeness predictor, the new website also features advanced search and filter capacities, integrated robot information in preview windows, and radar graphs visually representing each robots human-likeness profile! Additionally, we have improved our image collection (dated 05/20/2018) and streamlined the human-likeness predictor.

This new website would not have been possible without the dedication of our student developers, Leon Lei, Fawn Tong, G Cha, and Ken Noh, from Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. Over the spring semester, they worked closely with the core members of our ABOT research team, including Beth Phillips (Assistant Professor at the U.S. Air Force Academy), Xuan Zhao (Postdoctoral Fellow at University of Chicago Booth Business School), and Bertram Malle (Professor at Brown University) to redesign the entire website.

We hope that you enjoy these updated features and the new look and feel of our website as much as we do, and that our ABOT Database can continue to serve a useful resource for your research!


Xuan, Beth, Bertram, and the entire ABOT team
