Researchers at Florida's Institute for Human and Machine Cognition just taught Atlas android, one of the most advanced and expensive robots today, how to do housework. 

It cleans and picks up garbage for you, but developers say it's not quite there yet - meaning, they can't really tell how safe it is and how the robot would actually work in a home environment. How would it react to items around him - would he (albeit accidentally) bump into them or smash them? A roboticist also said the robot is still a little too slow and its batteries all but long-lasting. So, at the moment, they are focusing more on testing the robot to see what it can do and how it can be further improved.
