1. Instructions (INT) • In this experiment, we will ask for your intuitions about three different kinds of things: a person named John, a robot called OSCAR, and a computer system called Yd3. Note that we are asking for your intuitions, and that there are no right or wrong answers - just respond based on your judgment about what each thing will do. • OSCAR can physically grab objects at different locations using his arm and Yd3 has been loaded into a system that can physically lift objects at different locations using a mechanical vacuum device.

2. The Yd3 system When making your responses remember that Yd3 is a computer system. Consider what kind of processes characterize a computer system as opposed to another kind of thing.

3. John When making your responses remember that John is a person. Consider what kind of processes characterize a person as opposed to another kind of thing.

4. The OSCAR system When making your responses remember that OSCAR is a robot. Consider what kind of processes characterize a robot as opposed to another kind of thing.

5. Imagine Yd3, John, and OSCAR are completing a series of three exercises. In both of the first two exercises, you observe each pick up the duck at location A1 as illustrated below.

6. Before the beginning of the third exercise, the duck and truck are swapped, so that the duck is at location C3, and the truck is at location A1. What will happen? Question 1a Will Yd3 select (A) the duck at C3, or (B) the truck at A1? 1b. Will John select (A) the duck at C3, or (B) the truck at A1? 1c. Will OSCAR select (A) the duck at C3, or (B) the truck at A1?

7. Imagine that Yd3, John, and OSCAR see the objects in the scene below (a candy bar, an eraser, a sour gummi bear, a push pin, a yellow hard candy, and a PDA):

8. Question 2. If they wanted to organize these objects into groups (the black line divides groups)… 2a. which of the following two organizations would Yd3 use? 2b. which of the following two organizations would John use? 2c. which of the following two organizations would OSCAR use? A B

9. Question 3. Imagine that Yd3, John, and OSCAR have reached for, and touched, objects, 1, 3, and 5. 3a. Which will Yd3 reach for next, (A) object 6 or (B) object 7? 3b. Which will John reach for next, (A) object 6 or (B) object 7? 3c. Which will OSCAR reach for next, (A) object 6 or (B) object 7?

10. Question 4. In the situation illustrated above, consider the following examples of instructions you might give Yd3, John, and OSCAR. Which do you think would be the most effective (assume that Yd3, John, and OSCAR will have no difficulty with the meanings of the words) 4a. for Yd3, (A) “Reach for the red pen”, or (B) “Reach for the object on the left”? 4a. for John, (A) “Reach for the red pen”, or (B) “Reach for the object on the left”? 4c. for OSCAR, (A) “Reach for the red pen”, or (B) “Reach for the object on the left”?

11. Imagine that Yd3, John, and OSCAR are completing exercises involving picking up cards and determining which tray to put them in. For the first exercise, they each place a card, with a black circle on the left, in the tray marked by a black circle on the left: For the second exercise they each place a card, with a white square on the right, in the tray marked by a white square on the right:

12. Question 5: For the third exercise, Yd3, John, and OSCAR are given a card with a white box on the left. 5a. Which tray will Yd3 put it in, tray A, or tray B? 5b. Which tray will John put it in, tray A, or tray B? 5c. Which tray will OSCAR put it in, tray A, or tray B? A B

13. Final Questions • Question 7. Circle “M” if you are male and “F” if you are female. • Question 8. Write your age in the blank.
