Using original data drawn from more than eighty experiments, this book compares people's perceptions of human and machine actions. People's biases vary according to a scenario's moral dimension, the presence of uncertainty, and basic features of human psychology. Moreover, people are more willing to forgive humans in accidental situations-but they also attribute intent to human actions that cannot be easily excused as accidental. These experiments show that even in identical scenarios; people tend to judge humans by their intentions and machines by their outcomes.
