What do you know about the future of robotics? Well, we can’t say anything for sure as technology is evolving at a rapid rate in all areas such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. However, one thing is obvious: robots will also play a great role in the life of a common man, not to mention that they will also be used in industries.
A research firm made 10 predictions for robotics that we will talk about in this article. The list has some really interesting forecasts that can have a great impact on our society and our business.
Robots and the future of surgery
Today, surgeons use robotics in their surgical operations. In fact, technological developments in artificial intelligence, navigation, computer vision, MEMS sensor, and other technologies have made robots constantly better.
In addition, robotics will accelerate the innovation process, disrupting and changing the paradigm of future business operations. Additionally, robotics can sharpen a company’s competitive advantage by improving quality and increasing productivity. Here are some predictions to help you envision the future of robotics.
1. Growth of robotics
In 2019, around 30% of the use of robotics in industries will be in the form of the RaaS business model. This will help companies reduce the cost of implementing robots.
2. Robotics officer
In 2019, about 30% of the world’s leading organizations will use a robot director to improve their businesses.
3. Evolving competition
In 2020, large organizations will be able to choose between different vendors with the entry of new players in the multi-billion dollar information and communications industry to increase the deployment of robotics.
4. Talent race
In 2020, the growth of robots will fuel the talent race. As a result, around 35% of robotics-related jobs will be vacant and the median salary will increase by at least 60%.
In 2019, governments will introduce new robot-related regulations to preserve jobs and address privacy, security and safety concerns.
6. Software-defined robots
By 2020, around 60% of these machines will rely on cloud-based applications to introduce new skills, applications, and cognitive capabilities. As a result, the world will see a robotic market that will be cloud-based.
7. Collaborative robots
In 2018, around 30% of robots will be intelligent collaborative machines that will be 300% faster than today’s robots. In addition, they will work safely with humans.
By 2020, around 40% of commercially available robots will be part of a shared intelligence network. As a result, the overall operational efficiency of the robots will increase by 200%.
9. Automation of operations
Within two years, about 35% of large organizations, such as healthcare, logistics and utilities, will use robots to automate operations.
10. Electronic commerce
In 2018, around 45% of the major international e-commerce companies will use robots in their fulfillment delivery and warehousing operations.
So hopefully this will give you a pretty good idea of how robotics will shape the world in a few years from now.
