Preparing for automation means investing in robotics Nick Statt for The Verge: Robots are inevitably going to automate millions of jobs in the US and around the world, but there’s an even more complex scenario on the horizon, said roboticist Matt Rendall. In a talk Tuesday at SXSW, Rendall painted a picture of the future of robotic job displacement that focused less on automation and more on the realistic ways in which the robotics industry will reshape global manufacturing. The takeaway was that America, which has outsourced much of its manufacturing and lacks serious investment in industrial robotics, may miss out on the world’s next radical shift in how goods are produced. That’s because the robot makers — as in, the robots that make the robots — could play a key role in determining how automation expands across the globe. Full article:

A new study from Redwood Software and the Centre for Economic and Business Research (CEBR) finds that the U.S. is the world leader in robotics automation investment, with an estimated robotics stock of $732 billion* - larger than the economy of Switzerland, which stood at $446 billion* in 2015. U.S. investment in robotics was $86 billion in 2015, up from less than $40 billion in 2009, when investment hit a low following the financial crisis, and more than 15 times higher than the OECD average. Between 2011 and 2015, U.S. investments in robotics rose 30%. "The U.S. is the world leader in robotics investment, and spending has recovered quickly since the financial crisis in 2009," said David Whitaker, Managing Economist at CEBR. "The sheer size of the economy and its large base of production in the automotive and electronic sectors make it a natural candidate for increased automation." Full Press Release:
The leader in collaborative robots will exhibit 7th axis capability, new force torque sensors, augmented reality-assisted assembly, and a wide range of other new partner solutions certified to work flawlessly with UR robots through the Universal Robots+ platform.

New Study Shows U.S. is World Leader in Robotics Automation - With $732 Billion of Robots; Larger Than Economy of Switzerland
-Study from CEBR and Redwood Software shows U.S. investment in robots more than doubled since hitting low in 2009 -U.S. investment in robotics rose 30% between 2011 and 2015 -Investment in robotics offers better long-run value for money than investments in financial services, real estate or transportation -Robotics investment contributed around 10% of GDP per capita growth in OECD countries from 1993 to 2016 -Global robotics investment reached 18 year-peak in 2015 -There is a clear economic rationale backing the fact that humans and robots in the workplace are not mutually exclusive
