In the near future, robots will clearly play a bigger role in our lives. We can certainly expect to see robots inspecting parts on a factory floor or unloading trucks in the warehouse. Many companies are excited about such possibilities and are already partnering with robotics companies so as to be at the forefront of that transformation.

Even more exciting is that we can expect to have robots that can sit next to us and hold meaningful conversations with us.
