Even though the CIROS Salad Bot was designed to help with menial cooking tasks, the world has finally created a knife-wielding robot. Created by the Korean Institute of Science and Technology, CIROS is able to carry out multiple household tasks such as make tea, open refrigerators, make simple salads and do the dishes.

Based on a set of sophisticated algorithms, the CIROS Salad Bot is able to recognize items in its surroundings and intuitively knows what it needs to get or do next to complete the task. Technology-wise, this is a massive advancement that can bring robots into homes, assisting those who are too ill or impaired to carry out certain chores. However, it would not be paranoia if users were suspicious of the intelligent and intuitive machines that may or may not accidentally slice in the wrong direction 'by accident.'
