In the original "Bicentennial Man" story by Isaac Asimov, the robot manufacturer was named "U.S. Robots and Mechanical Men". Around 1971, a new modem-manufacturing company took the name "U.S. Robotics", partly to honor Asimov. Unfortunately, since in the movie the robot manufacturing company is not portrayed positively, the real-world company asked the filmmakers to use a different name. Hence, "NorthAm Robotics". There are a few places in the film where you can see the old name and logo.
