term robot traces back to the Czech word “robotnik,” which means “slave”
A brief history of men who build female robots

Actually “robotník“ is a Slovak word, in Czech it’s “dělník”. It means “worker” (not slave). But I think the word “robot” comes from Russian “rabota” which means “work”. So robots are essentially workers.
