Mapping the Robot Invasion

France, Spain and Portugal are ready to join Sarah Connor's Resistance against the rise of the robots. However Sweden and Finland are willing to welcome our new robot overlords with open arms.

The European Commission has polled people in 28 European countries to determine how people feel about robots. Rue89 has created three maps from the results of the poll to visualize how Europeans perceive the increased use of automation in the home and in the work place.

The three maps show the response by country to different questions in the survey. The first map shows the response by country to the question 'Do you love robots?' (although I suspect that wasn't the real question in the survey). The second map shows the response to the question 'Have You Ever Used a Robot?'. The last map shows which countries think robots will lead to the loss of jobs.
