Is there a robot in your future?  More importantly, what is the ultimate effect on society going to be once robots start taking over much of what has until now made humans unique?  Until recently, robots have for the most part been relegated to factories.  But that is about to change.  A number of firms are making robots that many of us will soon be working alonside.  More importantly, as these droids become more autonomous, will they slowly but surely push their human counterparts out of the picture altogether?  Will their growing intelligence become a threat to the human species itself, as a number of scientists believe?  Will human beings embrace these automated assistants as a boon, or will people begin to rage against the very machines meant to do their bidding.  Join us for this episode of Working the Web to Win as we take a look at the rise of the robots.
