Back in 1920, the science fiction drama Rossumovi Univerzální Roboti or Rossum’s Universal Robots (R.U.R), written by Czech Karel Čapek successfully captivated audiences around the globe for its dystopian reflection on humanity, industrialisation and technology, as well as coining the word ‘robot’.
