We are looking for people who own and use intelligent home appliance robots on a daily basis to know about their experiences. We aim to understand the relationship between humans and their intelligent home appliance robots by listening to their experiences, perceptions, expectations, and daily interactions. The participation involves a 1-hour online call to talk about the perceived experience of using intelligent home appliance robots.
The participant will join an online call which will be recorded and transcribed. In addition to that, they will fill out a questionnaire about their usage of intelligent home appliance robots. All personal data collected during the study will be processed in compliance with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the data protection laws of Finland. All data will be anonymized, and codes will be used to refer to specific participants. Also, any identifying information will be removed from the data.
