Amazon intends to increase its robot workforce to 10,000 by the end of 2014. CEO Jeff Bezos revealed the companys plans during a recent shareholder meeting, according to CNN Money. An Amazon spokeswoman noted that the increase wont change the number of actual people employed. The online retailer currently uses about 1,000 robots in its warehouses. The machines are produced by Kiva Systems, a robot-based material handling company that Amazon acquired for approximately $775 million in 2012.
