A new article, published today, explores the potential of automation and robotics to transform industries and improve productivity.
The article, titled “Automation and robotics could transform industries” by Daniel P. Geller and Andrew R. Boulter, examines a number of potential applications for automation and automation-enabled robotics in sectors such as manufacturing, health care, retail, transportation, logistics, manufacturing, agriculture, and the public sector.
While the article doesn’t detail how many applications there are in any of these areas, it does make a number claims about the potential for automation to improve productivity, reduce environmental impact, and even boost economic growth.
For example, the article notes that “many sectors could benefit from automated processes” and that “improving manufacturing productivity could create new jobs.”
While the technology that will ultimately be used in these automated processes could be relatively inexpensive, the researchers say that it could be the “only way to achieve a truly global level of automation.”
It’s a fascinating and timely article, and if you’re a fan of the technology and want to learn more, you can download the entire article below.
