If you have yet to jump on the Westworld bandwagon, you’re missing out. That’s particularly true for anyone who is awestruck by the future of robotics and AI. Known for its lifelike representations of tomorrow’s technologies, the HBO series drew accolades and a passionate following after it first aired in 2016.
