This robot was supposed to eliminate many human worker’s hands, but the situation remains unchanged.
Because the hiragana ends with an う sound, you know this word is a verb. The kanji itself means conserve... but why stop there when you could try to omit everything and to eliminate everything? Just take exactly what you need, conserve it, and omit everything else.
You have (はぶ) what you have, and omit what you don't need. Perfect life.
