An uprising like in "The Terminator" or "The Matrix" - not before reaching the technological singularity.
But massive failures, epidemics of computer viruses or theft of robots will happen even before that. But it's hard to call them real "uprisings", since they need a handful of skilled malefactors.
The question is quite interesting. If you look at the development of progress, say, over the past twenty years, you can immediately see that industry, including the production of robots, has made a sharp leap in comparison with the indicators of twenty years ago.
You've probably heard from the media about humanoid robots made in Japan. Now, of course, they can be distinguished from real people by the "robotic" manner of speech, but there will still be! Well, or recently, for example, a group of scientists from the University of Massachusetts made robotic worms that can independently build spaceships (and these robots can navigate themselves).
In general, given such a rapid growth of the robotic industry, the possibility of robots acquiring their own will and striving for freedom no longer seems to me sheer nonsense. Who knows what these pieces of iron will be capable of? ;)
