Boston Dynamics is leading the development of a new generation of robots and how their 2021 unfolds may well have a big influence on the future of robotics.

As we transition from narrowly capable industrial robots, to generally capable and agile robots, a new platform that could shape the future of mobility emerges.

With more companies like Unitree, Ghost Robotics and Agility Robotics joining the field, the stage may be set for a new robot revolution.

In that light, what does the future of robots actually hold?

The documentary “Will A Robot Steal My Job?“ provides an interesting look at what innovations in AI and robotics will do to the job market.

We think of robots as primarily being in factories; but the reality is that lawyers, accountants and even artists, are facing a future in which their livelihoods are threatened by artificial intelligence. From self-driving Tesla cars, to robo-journalists writing news by algorithm, artificially intelligent comedians, to state-of-the-art sex-robots, we are facing a future where vast swathes of the population will indeed surrender their job to machines. But Anne-Marie asks, is there also an opportunity: to adapt to a radically changing future, to adopt the technology, and to harness the rise of the robots for our own good?
