Kemp asserted that things are not the same when you're interacting with people and that's where robots come in.

Kemp insisted that there are huge opportunities for robots, and there are very distinct requirements from what led to the classic industrial robot.

Research at universities and industrial labs are being driven by the idea that robots will be partners of humans, rather than stand-ins or servants.

It is understood that robots will soon have the capability to perform like therapists, caregivers, guides and security guards among other jobs.
