Anyone with a shred of imagination, or who has seen a movie in the last, I don't know, twenty years, will be able to see the light and dark of
Help set up bases on other planets, or do dangerous "space walk" duties
Spelunking / Mining / Fixing the dang BP Oil Spew at the source...
Medical / Biohazard handling - medical duties - without risking contact to doctors/nurses/pathologists
Extreme rescue, as mentioned in the video
Seal Team Droids! (that one can go in either pro or con)
Helpful droids! Protocol anyone???
Battle droids! Eeek!
Fascist Police Force!
If you go AI for "greater efficiency" then you risk Terminator/SkyNet/Hal...
Assassin - set up gun, (or use a handy one implanted in its body) make calculations, fire, begone, no fingerprints and no traces...
I'm sure other's can come up with more! Technology - a double edged sword.
