A robotizáció térnyerésével kapcsolatos attitűdök Magyarországon





human-robot interaction, robot workforce, attitude, attitude study, European Value Survey, future of work, cluster analysis


Technological advances are introducing human-robot collaboration to many areas, including the corporate environment. The nature of work and occupations will thus change fundamentally in the future. One of the prerequisites for successfully meeting these challenges is the acceptance of robots, which is influenced by, among other things, the attitudes of individuals. The literature review synthesises the results of theoretical articles focusing on the factors influencing the development of attitudes towards robots. The aim of this paper is to investigate the evolution of attitudes towards robotization in Hungary, using the latest European Value Survey (EVS) data collection, cluster analysis and ANOVA methods. The relevance of attitudinal research on the robot workforce is unquestionable and, to date, no similar research on a Hungarian sample has been conducted.
