Last week we defined the term ‘cobots’. This week is Responsible Business Week and so our focus is on the socio-economic impact of robotics and artificial intelligence.


Advances in technological development mean AI and robotics have the potential to transform the way businesses operate in almost every sector. This presents unparalleled opportunities to develop human work in new ways, at the same time as increasing efficiency, productivity and profits. To capitalise on this, responsible businesses need to embrace new technology and plan effectively so the human and robotic workforces enjoy a symbiotic and successful relationship in the future.


Take a look at this article where Amanda Mackenzie, CEO of Business in the Community, outlines how companies can put people at the heart of the digital revolution.
