I know that Japan, a robotics leader, faces a shrinking workforce and an aging population, and they’re looking to staff shops, hotels, nursing homes, and more with robots. Robots could threaten human employment, but are there are some situations where a large robot workforce might do some good?

Hey Digo, thanks for the feedback. There’s not a lot of research done on the evolutionary advantages of claspers. It’s especially mind-boggling since animals like sharks only use one while mating! I added this to the story.
