Wall Street Journal explores why the COVID pandemic has accelerated the arrival of robotics in the workplace.

We think of robots as primarily being in factories; but the reality is that lawyers, accountants and even artists, are facing a future in which their livelihoods are threatened by artificial intelligence.
