It’s only a matter of time before robots become mainstream in the workplace. After all, many tasks are automated already. But how much autonomy should robots have? Turns out, maybe more than you think!

There has always been a fear that machines will rise and take over the world (OK, at least in movies), but the MIT study shows how humans could benefit from working alongside robots.
What do you think? If you had a robot coworker, how much freedom would you want it to have?
