However, before we welcome Digit into our homes and workplaces, we must also be aware of the challenges and risks associated with humanoid robots. After all, they are not human and they do not always behave the way we expect or want them to. Therefore, we must be careful and responsible when we use them, and ensure that they best serve our interests and values.
