Robots need human emotions, and if they cant relate to ones emotion, they will not be up to standards when getting help. Its as if your talking to a wall.

Too dependent on human interaction especially of the notice-what-the-patient-is-not-saying variety. Demand will also increase with aging population. Probably the very last to go.
