Robots becoming more capable and pervasive, disrupting industries and beginning to enter consumer markets

Robots becoming more capable and pervasive, disrupting industries and beginning to enter consumer markets

Definition

  • Intelligent automated machines and systems that perform work autonomously or alongside humans

Outlook

  • Increased penetration of robots in industrial markets, replacing humans in performing low-skilled functions and assisting people to perform more complex tasks
  • Enhanced sophistication of personal robots, including those equipped with facial recognition and tracking capabilities, interactive voice systems and basic emotion engines

Implications

  • Enabling work process automation, driving human workers to focus on higher-value, non-repetitive activities
  • Threatening existing businesses and geographies that rely heavily on non-automated processes
  • Enabling return of manufacturing from low-cost to highly-skilled regions
Where might there be opportunities to replace or augment repetitive work in your business, redeploying teams to focus on higher-value activities?
