4.) (Aspect 4) Robots work in places that humans cannot work, such as in mines and chemical factories. Robots can g places that humans can't reach and do those jobs humans can't do.

5.) (Aspect 3) The robotic industry creates jobs, people have to build the robots and mandate the robots as well. When new robotic automation products are created by companies create jobs out of the production sector that are made to sell and market. Jobs include robotic product technical support, sales, customer service, and marketing.

6.) (Aspect 3) Baxter, is trying to bring all the benefits of having robots in small businesses that haven't had access to this sort of technology before. Baxter is just not only inexpensive; but also that the robot can be easily programmed to do all kinds of different stuff by humans without any special operator training. Rethink is going in the opposite direction with robots that bring human skills to to a human workplace, creating jobs by making existing workers more efficient and lowering the cost of production to levels that are competitive with offshore manufacturing.
