We can’t help but wonder: as the robot revolution is gaining pace, is it running in line with our values? Will the robot apocalypse lead to the downfall of humankind (no hyperbole intended …)?
One thing is definitely certain: Artificial intelligence has vast potential. Its responsible implementation is up to us!
