Robots need to improve but could take over your job
There are currently just four problems with robot technology that stop the mechanical creations being effective in everyday employment, but boffins are working to rectify these issues as quickly as possible.
Firstly, robots are incapable of anticipating human behaviour and commonplace needs.
So, for example, if you asked your computerised colleague to hand you a screwdriver, it might pass it to you the wrong way round.
In order to be functional and increase productivity, robots need to learn these nuances of human demands.
This could be the future of the workplace
The other issue, according to tech publication Wired.com, is transparency.
A robot does not know its own strength, so it could pass an object to a human that one would be incapable of carrying.
In order to avoid potential injuries, robots need to learn human capabilities and give off signals to relay how weighty an item is.

CHEF: A start-up called Moley Robotics has invented a 100% automated, intelligent robot chef. The cooking automaton can learn recipes and techniques, whip up gourmet meals and even clean up after itself.
Another stick in the mud with regard to robot employment is their ability to be customised to the individual human user.
Driverless cars are about to hit the market, but not everybody needs their robot driver to have the same driving style.
One way around this, Wired.com suggests, is to undergo a simulated driving experience with the intelligent machine and set preferences accordingly.
For example, it may present the user with a set of traffic lights or a roundabout and ask you how you would like it to respond to that situation in real life.

The final issue is that robots are entirely literal, because they are essentially moving computers meaning they must become less rigid in order to be compatible with day-to-day human life.
So if you set it a task such as hoovering your house, and gave it a reward for cleaning up as much dust as possible, it may polish your surfaces to a pristine level, empty all the dust and then clean it again to receive maximum praise.
