Wednesday/ the robots are coming (for your job)

More and more robots are installed in factories (and by 2025 in homes, and offices and  – the coffee shop?), says the Wall Street Journal in an article on Wednesday.  Apparently the experts are still split over the question whether robots will eventually decimate or elevate the economy, since they have the potential to steal even the remaining jobs that humans are still better at.  Machines have stolen our jobs ever since the Industrial Revolution, of course.  (Already taken : bank tellers, travel agents, translators .. next up : neurosurgeons, taxi drivers, cooks, warehouse stockers?).  Well, we will have to wait and see.  A simple task such as folding laundry takes enormous computing power and dexterity, for example.
