Join us on Tuesday, November 9th from 5:00pm - 6:00pm ET to learn more about WPI's Future of Robots in the Workplace – Research & Development Program! To learn more, please visit our website.

Robots will steal (some of) our jobs, and this may not necessarily be a bad thing. It is inevitable that robotic interfaces and assistants will play a bigger role in the workplace in the decades ahead of us. Yet, as current robotics research shows, robots perform better at tasks that are considerably difficult for humans and fail in tasks that are easy for humans. As such, the future of work depends on how well we can establish a division of labor between robots and humans, so that robots will perform tasks that are risky and dangerous, and humans will focus on higher-level, more meaningful, and yet easier, value-added activities that are less strenuous.
