Hi, Robot! Reason Welcomes the Robot Revolution.



The robot revolution isn't coming, it's here now. It arrives in the form of automated weapons, industrial devices, electronic pets, synthetic lovers—and yes, the damned machines just may be after our jobs!

Will robots rise against us? Will they be subverted by that ultimate malware: human cussedness? Or will they just make our kitchen floors spotlessly clean? The answer is…probably really weird.

And maybe, just maybe, our automated creations will finally relieve us of responsibility for our decisions and actions. Well…possibly not. 

So, without further ado, join Reason in greeting our robot overlords, underlords, and electronic assistants.
