More than half of Brits would embrace working with a robot

More than half of Brits would embrace working with a robot
The concept of robots living among humans has often been explored within the genre of sci-fi. And whilst the idea seems far-fetched, the idea that robots could become part of everyday life has become a topic of conversation. With the influence of TV shows such as Westworld and Humans, and movies such as Blade Runner and Her, robot-human relationships has become a concept many have begun to form an opinion on. As AI continues to advance, the possibility of building relationships with robots grows.

Laundry folding robots among Brits’ most desired smart tech

Laundry folding robots among Brits’ most desired smart tech
In a world where people are busier than ever before, convenience and speed have become very desirable commodities. Luckily, the emergence of various technology has enabled individuals to spend less time on mundane everyday tasks within the workplace as well as their own home. Some of the biggest technological developments have come from WiFi enabled devices (e.g. smart speakers, smart thermostat etc.) that can function and be controlled in conjunction with one another to create a ‘connected’ working or living environment.

Consumers become comfortable with robots in customer service

Consumers become comfortable with robots in customer service
As Google Duplex inches closer to becoming a reality, new research by Aspect Software has revealed that over half of consumers (52%) would be comfortable communicating with a customer service robot that closely mimics human behaviour over the phone. While this indicates a growing acceptance of customer service technology that is increasingly human-like, there also remain a number of concerns about the impact this will have on the role of human agents.

The robot arms that are getting everywhere

The robot arms that are getting everywhere
Recent developments are opening new opportunities and catapulting the industrial robot arm into a journey around the production environment. Robots undoubtably take the drudgery out of many repetitive manufacturing, packaging and processing tasks. Engineers are generally fascinated by the idea of improving production processes and keen to integrate robots, so the decision as to whether one is used or not boils down to economics; operators want to see a good case made for the return on investment before giving the green light.

Are robots really going to steal our jobs?

Are robots really going to steal our jobs?
It’s a brave new world. Industrial automation and robotics are wiping out jobs across the board, swathes of people are roaming the streets unemployed and food is being rationed by an artificial intelligence, which decides how much to give them based on its perceived view of their value to society. Or at least that’s what popular culture and national news media would have us believe. By Stephen Hayes, managing director of Beckhoff Automation.
