Usually a square-shaped humanoid on wheels designed to do tasks for people, usually lazy ass people, but can also be used to describe people who are mindless pieces of shit whom set an objective to destroy a person's life by means of putting them in jail for no reason, sending them to hospitals when they're completely healthy, and more. When they accomplish their goal, they just stand around and do nothing until they find another target in their sensors. They're much like a robot that malfunctions. Bad parents are a very good example of robots, especially ones who violently beat their kids for religion. Tommy Vercetti from the famed Rockstar game, Grand Theft Auto Vice City, uses this term to insult police officers that pursue him.

The term 'robot' in recent cultural contexts in the USA, and presumably other nations, seems to refer to people who appear to mindlessly follow various sets of rules. This definition has been extended to specific sub-cultures and particularly, corporate cultures.
The extension of this definition has come to include anyone following the rule-sets of their learned behavior, but in particular, those people who mimic their cultural memes while unaware of their imitative, example-dependent tendencies.
There is a social movement to objectify people with the term robot to reduce or deny their human characteristics, but this movement is also a projection of the observers' own robotic qualities which the observers are either unaware of or are attempting to deny.
This extended definition for 'robot' can go so far that it includes all people, because all people learn their behavior from other people and cultures whom they have chosen to mimic, either consciously or non-consciously.
People described as 'robots' appear to have free will, however all of a robot's options have been pre-programmed by their cultural contexts and social dependencies, regardless of whether they choose conformative, moderate, or rebellious modes of self-expressions.
You ARE a robot, but so what? So is everyone else...
