I had a brief appearance on CNBC this morning to talk about robots and automation. This was my first TV appearance, so hope it’s not too bad… I can’t embed it here, but you can see it on the CNBC site.
Also, here are a couple of good of good automation videos from Singularity Hub.
The first one shows automation at a memory card manufacturer. Notice how the more labor-intensive activities are all offshored to Asia; the US-based portions seem to be almost entirely automated. Also notice how the walls and ceilings are used to move materials. The full article is here.
Here’s a second article and video that show systems focused on sorting, moving materials, palletizing and shipping.
