A study at the Human Computer Interaction lab in Manitoba, Canada shows people would perform a task they didn’t want to do about half the time if a robot asked them to do it.

In other wordsto take it to its logical conclusion, about half of us will be sold into human slavery when the robots eventually rise up, and about half of us will lead the resistance.
