The origin of the word ‘Robot’

The term “robot” was coined by Czech writer Karel Čapek (1880-1938) in his 1920 play “R.U.R.” It is derived from the Czech word “robota,” meaning forced labour. The play explores the consequences of creating artificial life to serve humans, and the word “robot” has since become ubiquitous in science fiction and technology discussions.
