"Robot" is a much broader term in manufacturing than what the average person or fear mongering columnist envisions. A lot of mechanical machinery is be replaced by robotics. And as mechanicals continue to age and need replacing, growth in robotics will grow.
Undoubtedly human tasks are being replaced by robots, but my guess the percentage in annual robot sales that actually take jobs is a small fraction.
Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgment that something is more important than fear.
The brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all.
