Robotics and automation, including use of smart machines and the rise of the internet of things, is entering a new phase as these technologies advance. In its initial stages, this emerging industry of the future has been largely built on passionate researcher and visionary advocates. However, it has become obvious that robotics technology is no longer for the few but a technology permeating our world.
Even though these new technologies can empower individuals, businesses and societies there are fears that the human race, in the long term, will be outnumbered, outdated, and outthought by the next generation of robots and smart machines. This presentation accompanies our September 2014 GT briefing, based on our forthcoming report, “Industries of the Future: Robotics,” and looks at: How robotic technology is impacting existing industries and markets; .How innovative robotic technologies could impact jobs and skills required for the future.

This will increase both the number and complexity of the tasks that they can take on – or take over from human workers. In many industries dramatic changes are already driven by emerging robotics technology. Here are just a few examples of how it will impact industries and markets in the near future.
