I programmed my CNC machine using Surfcam software in the late 1990's to cut out out complexly shaped wood furniture parts for my furniture making business. Working with machining code daily demystifies the process somewhat as one sees that even the most impressively machined objects are still just mechanical processes. The mechanical robot revolution happened years ago. I don't have much fear of the robots "taking over," but I do have concerns over the possibility that people in charge of the robots could take over. It could be argued that drone technology is the first concrete example of a take over.
