    A new study has found that 53% of employed British workers would be happy to work for a robot. https://www.forbes.com/sites/ginaclarke/2018/09/22/would-you-welcome-a-robot-half-of-uk-work-force-say-yes/#6a4b0a944508 Perhaps ironically, nearly 1 in 10 believe that the smart technology company would be more enjoyable company than that of a human colleague. But watch out entrepreneurs, as almost a third of Brits (32%) would welcome a robot CEO.
    And it seems that Millennials are the generation welcoming such radical moves with 8 out of 10 surveyed happy to bring technology into the office whereas only 6% of baby boomers would trust a robot.

    “Robots learn tasks from people with framework developed by Stanford researchers https://news.stanford.edu/2018/10/26/robots-learn-tasks-people/ “…“The twin frameworks combined can provide a mechanism for AI-assisted human performance of tasks where we can bring humans away from dangerous environments while still retaining a similar level of task execution proficiency,” said postdoctoral fellow Animesh Garg, a member of the team that developed the frameworks. The team envisions that robots will be an integral part of everyday life in the future: helping with household chores, performing repetitive assembly tasks in manufacturing or completing dangerous tasks that may pose a threat to increasingly useless meatbags.”
