Who coined the term ‘robot’? A Czech writer and journalist called Karel Capek. He wrote a play called ‘Rossum’s Universal Robots (R.U.R.)’ in 1920. In it the robots take over the world and kill the human race. Remarkably, he wrote the play way before robots even existed! It’s no wonder, that with this kind of genesis, we are afraid they actually will erase the human race.
