Their cost makes it prohibitive for individuals to buy and use them while big manufacturing companies invest millions to automate their production chains. Though robotics has a bright future, hardware cost keeps decreasing and AI developments around Natural Language Processing, hand dexterity and facial expressions make robots more and more human-like. Could we imagine a day when robots would be considered special citizens ?
