They can help us clean the house, do the grocery, mown the lawn, that’s all the kind of jobs that people now don’t have to do, because we’re so busy that we rule out those things. Other things that they can do is accompany us anywhere. For example, going for a walk in the park, or they can help us walk our pet because we don’t have time to do it.
                 But, robots will make our way lives worse because they are smart and they can even be smarter than us human who mode them want them to be great and smart.

c)      Doctor. I don’t agree with this. Because it isn’t always patient in stable condition. Sometimes people make mistakes during the surgery, so we only need a human doing this job.
d)     Police officer. Actually I don’t agree with this. Because I think only human can do this job. Robots don’t have feelings. But robots can help the human police to do their job. For example, robots can search for criminals using x-rays in a hidden place.
e)      Singer. I think this is a bad idea. Robots can singing, but that is just program. It have some weakness. Don’t have feelings, can’t thinking like human. So, robots can’t live singing.

g)      Taxi driver. Yes, I agree with this. Each robot car has a navigation tool or GPS. So, I thought it would never happen accidents on road.
