Lee Schafer reports in The Star-Tribune:
An initial score suggests we are cautiously at ease with robots. A similar conclusion can be drawn from the ranking of Americans’ greatest fears: fear of “computers replacing people in the workforce” was near the bottom.17 percent said they were afraid of that, as many as being afraid of a large volcano. Not far away on the list was the fear of zombies. One reason Americans are not that afraid of robots: robot tech isn’t just our future. It’s around us already.
