I'd imagine that robots are always going to need some kind of human assistance, especially in maintenance and repair. I also believe that robots will need continually developing and improving - all of which are down to the actions of us humans. I have recently written a hub about the future of robots, with the likes of caregiving robots and even robot pets. There is a discussion brewing there if you're interested!
