Robotics have been developed for a wealth of applications that can enhance safety, functionality and productivity.

Soon, humans doing dangerous, inefficient or tedious work tasks will be a thing of the past. Automation will lead to smart factories, remote exploration and self-driving transportation. In addition, everything from environmental cleanup to space exploration will harness the power of robotics allowing us to use this tech to move far beyond human capabilities. Coupled with machine learning, the future will be a very different place – with a new revolution in intelligence transforming the way we live, think and interact with technology. For many, it is a future we cannot imagine, but we will explore the latest developments and ask experts where they see us heading in the near, middle and long term.
