I’ve referred to the subject (threat?) of robots several times in the last year.

Clearly they (robots) are going to have a big impact on many companies and on many people’s jobs – but exactly how, in what ways ,is not yet clear. For some time humans and robots are likely to be co-workers. Skilled workers will survive the longest.

Views on this subject vary – but sometimes writers seem to be scaremongering rather than making reasoned assumptions and predictions. As ever, we will have to wait and see.

However, my reading in this area did throw up a word I wish I had coined – robopocalypse.
