A really cool question. Short answer; I don’t know.
When you plant a seed of a tree you don’t know how well or tall it’ll grow, especially if you’re not the one caring for it.
The robots I’ve worked on so far haven’t changed the world but my research might help someone else’s robots change the world. Also I’m only at the beginning so I cant even imagine what robots I will build yet and thus how they will change the world.
Its all very exciting stuff
