Robots Create Jobs - IFR International Federation of Robotics

Robots Create Jobs - IFR International Federation of Robotics | Made Different | Scoop.it

ROBOTICS will be a major driver for global job creation over the next five years.  The announcement is based on a study conducted by the market research firm, Metra Martech, "Positive Impact of Industrial Robots on Employment".

One million industrial robots currently in operation have been directly responsible for the creation of close to three million jobs, the study concluded. A growth in robot use over the next five years will result in the creation of one million high quality jobs around the world.  Robots will help to create jobs in some of the most critical industries of this century: consumer electronics, food, solar & wind power, and advanced battery manufacturing to name just a few.

Jed Fisher's curator insight, December 23, 2012 3:35 PM

I think Trek Lord from Metaio is spot on with his post. I'm really hopeful that 2013 will see real AR Apps coming to market, doing useful things, enabling new workflows, and opening up new opportunities. 

So many verticals can benefit from AR, anytime you want to augment reality to show things like before/after, alternatives, directions/instructions, commuication, where people are, etc, etc. There are so many great uses of AR in every field. For AR to be successful, like any business, it needs to do something that is needed in a better way.

AR is one of our specialities at 4D Pipeline, shoot me a mail and I'll share some ideas on how it can help your business. You'll be surprised.
