With the automation of many everyday activities, could a robot be a more productive addition to boardrooms of the future than a CEO?
In an era defined by the exponential evolution of technology, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) have come a long way in a short space of time. From lifting hot pieces of metal and stacking them, as the first digitally operated and programmable robot did in 1961, commercial and industrial robots are now widely used to remove repetitive tasks and make our lives easier. Robots can perform surgical operations, build cars, move stock in warehouses, check you into your hotel and serve you drinks. And they can do it quickly and efficiently.
