Rise of the Machine

The robots are coming! With advancements in automation technology, companies are finding they can employ machines that offer improved safety features, software interfaces, weight-lifting capabilities and dexterity.[1] Already a million-and-a-half robots work in manufacturing assembly, and they’re now finding a growing market in the defense sector’s increasing embrace of drones. It’s estimated that global spending on unmanned aerial vehicles will almost double over the next spending to $11.3 billion a year.[2] Major players are getting into the act. Google acquired eight robotics firms in the second half of 2013, while Amazon and DHL are testing drones for package delivery.[3] Taiwan-based Foxconn, the company that assembles 40% of the world’s consumer electronics, plans to buy a million robots during 2014-2017.[4] Meanwhile, Apple plans to spend $10.5 billion on supply-chain robots and machinery to help make iPhones and iPads.[5] Step aside, humans.
