Research Summary:
This piece integrates and synthesizes human-robot collaboration studies from four academic disciplines (management, economics, psychology, engineering). Robots are defined as machines capable of performing complex series of actions automatically. Based on their review of prior work, the authors propose that human-robot collaboration research parallels the evolution of leadership research. They then offer suggestions for future studies, taking into consideration both practical implications and ethical considerations related to using robots in various roles across different industries.
