Naomi Lee Bloom, Bloom & Wallace: “HR cannot afford to miss the boat on the growth in size and importance of the robotic workforce.”

Sherryanne Meyer, ASUG: “The robots haven’t just landed in the workplace—they’re expanding skills, moving up the corporate ladder, showing awesome productivity and retention rates, and increasingly shoving aside their human counterparts…Google [recently] won a patent to start building worker robots with personalities.” (WIRED)
