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.

    Because unable to understand what they are saying, they end up writing complete nonsense ... A language thus stops being an amazing communication tool and instead becomes a meaningless design element ...That really could've been a cool poster, if it weren't for Google Translate ...
