There was a time when the word “robot” or “artificial intelligence” led us to an automatically visualization of a dystopian future landscape inside our heads. A science-fiction portrait full of dazzling flying spaceships filled with weird-looking subjects in bright metallic suits guided by tricky software commands. All worthy of an episode of Star Trek. Well, not anymore, the robot-A.I. machinery is here to stay. From the impressive — and creepy — new A.I. assistant at the last Google I/O keynote making hair salon appointments over the phone, to the robot army depicted in a viral video packing groceries in swarms. Artificial intelligence and robotics are making their way into our lives and jobs whether we want them to or not. The question is, what is next? Are we going to continue the discourse against machines or are we at the beginning of a new era of coexistence between humans and computers?
