How human does your robot look?

Our Robot Human-Likeness Predictor helps you forecast the extent to which your robot will be perceived as human-like compared to other real-world robots. Give it a try!

How it works

With this tool, you can get a quick estimate of how human-like your robot will be perceived. The Human-likeness score and Dimension scores you receive are directly comparable to the robots in the core collection of the ABOT Database (link to collection). The predicted scores are based on a multiple regression model calculated with data from 1,240 participants. When you are ready to try the predictor click 'start'!

Make sure to have a photo of your robot for reference.
