BCG - Press Release - Rise of the Machines: BCG Projects $67 Billion Market for Robots by 2025

BCG - Press Release - Rise of the Machines: BCG Projects $67 Billion Market for Robots by 2025 | Human Capital & Business Trends | Scoop.it
"Too Few Corporate Leaders Are Thinking About How the Next Generation of Robotics Will Affect Their Workforce, Operations, Business Models, and Competitive Position, Experts Say"
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Interesting data from a BCG study and calculation, saying "spending on robots worldwide is expected to more than quadruple from just over $15 billion four years ago to about $67 billion by 2025."


"It’s interesting to note that 15 years ago, there was no significant market for personal robots and only a very small one—$1.1 billion in 2000—for commercial applications."


Conclusion: The Science-Fiction Future is heading towards us swiftly!

Automation, jobs, and the future of work | McKinsey & Company

Automation, jobs, and the future of work | McKinsey & Company | Human Capital & Business Trends | Scoop.it
A group of economists, tech entrepreneurs, and academics discuss whether technological advances will automate tasks more quickly than the United States can create jobs. A McKinsey Global Institute article.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Great round table interview organised by McKinsey on the subject of the impact of on-going automation on people and jobs. Subjects discussed were: Rethinking job creation; Who owns machines?; Getting the workforce to adapt; and Job quality and fiscal policy.

 

Some memorable quotes I picked:

 

"In the future, adaptability is key, and people are more adaptable."

 

"We are going to be focused on making better experiences for consumers, and that will not necessarily be automatable."

 

"A number of jobs will be created, but the quality of jobs is a huge question."

 

"We are not innovating at the speed of the economy. We are not adapting fast enough."

 

"What people forget is that when there are innovations that destroy jobs, incomes are created for somebody else."
