The impact that robots have had on our society is huge.
ces there are problems. As with any machine, robots can break and even cause disaster. They are powerful machines that we allow to control certain things. When something goes wrong, terrible things can happen. Luckily, this is rare because robotic systems are designed with many safety features that limit the harm they can do.
There's also the problem of evil people using robots for evil purposes. This is true today with other forms of technology such as weapons, and biological material.
Of course, robots could be used in future wars. This could be good or bad. If humans perform their agressive acts by sending machines out to fight other machines, that would be better than sending humans out to fight other humans. Teams of robots could be used to defend a country against attacks while limiting human ca
