There's a lot of discussion in the media lately about robotics (when they're not freaking out about UAVs) with particular emphasis on whether or not robots are good or bad for society, particularly their effect on the work force.
Much of the discussion centers on the near future, focuses on the negatives of robotics, and entirely misses that the land surveying industry has and is already going through this robotic revolution. I am writing an article on this subject and would appreciate your feedback on the influence of robotics in our industry- good and bad.
Related to this discussion, I came across this Popular Science article titled "THIS BRICKLAYING ROBOT CAN BUILD A HOUSE IN TWO DAYS". You can read it here: http://www.popsci.com/australian-robot-will-shift-bricks
