MIT researchers: You'll actually welcome your robot boss

At first, I thought it was pretty convenient that when your study's sample group consists mostly of MIT students then, yeah, they'll probably end up trusting the robot. Then I thought about the results of the study for a bit longer. Think back to the last menial job you had, was there ever a manager who got on your nerves?

The robot isn't capable of taking a break. When it organizes the team, it organizes for efficiency without favoritism. It shouldn't be surprising that the teams that performed the task under the supervision of a robot met their goals much quicker than the other teams.

What if your boss was a faceless robot? Would you like it? Let's discuss the rise of our robot overlords in the comment section.
