Robots are not here to steal our jobs, nor are we at risk of any other en masse robotic movement reliant upon self-determined mechanized cognizance.

In fact, nearly 100% of contemporary robotic technologies are dependent on human interaction and maintenance to function. Technically speaking, today’s robots are semi-autonomous at best – interactive tools existing within a fixed environment, capable of processing only basic sensory details and acting in binaries (think Part A affixed to Component B).

“We are becoming more familiar with robots, but their sophistication has not changed much,” assures U.S. robotics law and policy expert Ryan Calo. In fact, since the original coinage of the term ‘Artificial Intelligence’ more than 60 years ago, robotics technologies have progressed at a snail’s pace; “Today, robots are about as smart as insects,” confides Calo. The vision of a fully automated, autonomous manufacturing facility, while perpetuated with assurance by some, is little more than today’s flying car.
