Purposeful AI Robots will fly planes, and humans won't be redundant Published on Feb 16, 2017 The rapid convergence of operational and information technologies is decisively transforming the world of industrial production, often referred to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Consider the huge robotic arms in a decades-old manufacturing plant. Until recently, each arm was managed by a computer and did a simple precise pick and place task. No more. Now, thanks to plant-wide technological improvements, these robotic arms can all be connected to each other and work in tandem, completing a larger number of manufacturing tasks intelligently. Meet Locksher Lomes and Dr. Watts in this podcast for a gripping perspective on the topic.
