A robot, in the purest sense, can't perform outside of its programming. As such, we can trust a robot to do its given function.

However, the more complicated those functions become, and the more exceptions and conflicting situations are presented, the less predictable(and thus, less reliable) their actions become. If given the ability to grow and learn on their own- if given free will- then they will be as trustworthy as any human at the same stage of development.
