There is (probably) no reason to fear the robot uprising. As this video from The Atlantic points out, the robots have already taken over. They currently run our communications systems, our banking systems, parts of our military and more. We've happily let them take over and we will continue to. In fact, as time goes on, the difference between them and us is going to become pretty difficult to nail down.
In the not too distant future, your iPhone will be implanted. Parts of your, genetically enhanced, body may well be cybernetic. Robots and artificial intelligence will take over most manual labor, dangerous jobs, repetitive and analytic tasks. I've no idea how our economy will work when all of the jobs are gone but neither, really, does anyone else.
