Trend #2: Digital revolution / exponential computational growth1990 Cell phone subscribers: 12.4 million (0.25% of world population in 1990) Internet users: 2.8 million (0.05% of world population in 1990)2010 Cell phone subscribers: 4 billion (67% of world population in 2010) Internet users: 1.8 billion (26.6% of world population in 2010) Source: Wikipedia “it took ninety years to achieve the first MIPS (million instructions per second) per 1.000 USD, now we add one MIPS per 1.000 USD every day” Source: law of accelerating returns
  14. 14. Trend #2: Digital revolution / exponential computational growth Can the exponential growth continue? “One cubic inch of nanotube circuitry would be a million times more powerful than the human brain” “There are more than enough new computing technologies now being researched, including three-dimensional silicon chips, optical computing, crystalline computing, DNA computing, and quantum computing, to keep the law of accelerating returns as applied to computation going for a long time” Source: law of accelerating returns Where does the progression of computational power then bring us? We achieve one Human Brain capability (2*1016 cps) for $1.000 around the year 2023 We achieve one Human Brain capability (2*1016 cps) for $0,01 around the year 2037 We achieve one Human Race capability (2*1026 cps) for $1.000 around the year 2049 We achieve one Human Race capability (2*1026 cps) for $0,01 around the year 2059

  18. 18. Genefke Scale© The 5 categoriesNeed for new development /Gap in knowledge, competences 5 4 3 2 1 Complexity
  19. 19. Genefke Scale© Category 1, Simple Standard Solutions 4 5 2 3 1 Off the shelf solutions Handling robots No process Singular robots No external axis Number of references: Many
  20. 20. Genefke Scale©Category 2, Adapted Standard Solutions 4 5 2 31 Off the shelf with adaptation to the specific task Process-robots When multiple robots then no overlapping work zones No or few external axis Number of references: Some
  21. 21. Genefke Scale©Category 3, Special Solutions 4 5 2 31 Solutions that require build up of new knowledge through practical pre-projects that aims at creating “break through demonstration” of critical elements Process is part of the solution Simple sensor input Multiple robots with overlapping work zones Cooperating robots, “standard controller” External axes Number of references: No identical, but partial ones might exist in other solutions
  22. 22. Genefke Scale©Category 4, Innovation 4 5 2 31 Solutions being so complex that integrators need to team up with specialised centres to be able to carry out the pre-project demonstrations. Typically funded by EC or other funding bodies Complicated process is integrated in the solution Input from several sensors simultaneously in not fully structured environments Cooperating robots, off-line programmed External axes Number of references: No identical, but partial ones might exists in other solutions
  23. 23. Genefke Scale©Category 5, Research 4 5 2 31 Basic understanding and technological development with a long term interest for the industry Solutions that are unlike ones seen before Cooperating robots, real-time programmed Mobile servicerobots in open environments New types of sensors Number of references: None!

  25. 25. Genefke Scale©Multiple dimensions, assessments of gap/challenges/opportunities Multiple-dimensions Green is own competences 1.

Brugerflade 0 Processen Yellow is ”the risk”, but also the space for learning, development 5. Materialernes 9. Software and new competences – where egnethed enterprises can ”distance and differentiate” from competitors 8. Hardware 6. Emnets egnethed Risk management: the “yellow- 7. space” should not be over 1, Procesprogrammering preferably ½
  26. 26. Genefke Scale©Strategic focus on 2½ - 3 is existentially vital! Are you thinking?: ”I will not risk too much, I don’t want “yellow-space” in projects, I stick to category 1-2” Then you must be aware that!: ”this knowledge/technology is global, you walk in the footsteps of others, you can’t get in front of them, your production will never be competitive” Logical conclusion:  Strategic focus on cat. 2½ - 3, and  - rest of the production moves sooner or later Solutions over category 2½ can’t outsourced without internal knowledge transfer E.g. China today has the world’s largest growth in import and use of industrial robots
  27. 27. Genefke Scale©Production’s importance for growth and wealth Production ATTRACTS knowledge-based jobs  electric, building, technique, machine, engineer, design, development…  and create skilled supplies  thus creates knowledge-intensive jobs! There we MUST develop and have growth in our production  For the companies and for our societies welfare and wealth overall!  it is fundamentally a matter of survival! In practice  Georgia/USA and automobile industry!  China and wind mills!
  28. 28. Genefke Scale© A summarised recipe / recommendation1. Analyse production and sort into categories2. Cat. 1+2: Raise to 2½+, automate NOW, or outsource!3. Cat. 2½+3: Careful select strategic partners  Take care the project is not “lowered” to cat. 1½ - 2!  Be ready with project model, organisation, …4. Cat. 3½+4½: Choose innovation partners with care  Match own needs with technological development (2-5 year)  Roadmap for match (needs/technology match over time)  Design and build own intern learning-based organisation  Initiate (largest effect – best match) projects5. If too many 3½+4½ or too large part of the production then outsource the least critical and most generic processes
  29. 29. Genefke Scale©… in other words We MUST have growth in the production - and it IS possible! - and we can achieve world-class level Recipe: knowledge based, advanced technology automation as a strategic tool to distance from the competitors and differentiate in the market Strategic automation  Effect on customer-/buy-parameters  Knowledge-/Competence build up  Decided, planned/prioritised, prepared Advanced technology  Cognitive robot technologies  Knowledge based cat. 2½ - 3  Digitalised knowledge and knowledge-processes Welfare-/Service industry depends on manufacturing!  Mature advanced automation in “open” environments  Initiate technology-/solution-development  Welfare still too complex
  30. 30. Summary Double demographic challenge+ Digital revolution and exponential computational growth+ Strategic robotic solutions in category 2½-4 Development and deployment of millions of new service based robotic systems (and new industrial generation as well) over the coming 5-10-15 years - and this is only the birth of a new powerful global business segment!
