Last week we had an outstanding turnout for our annual Robotics Industry Forum down in Orlando, Florida. Over 350 professionals from the robotics, vision, and motion control industries gathered for three days of exceptional speakers, business-building networking, and market insights. Samuel Bouchard, CEO of Robotiq, summarized his findings at the conference nicely:
3. Robots DO create jobs
Who said that: Mike Wilson, British Automation and Robotic Association
This did not surprise the robotic folks listening to the talk, but everybody was glad to finally see serious numbers that prove this important statement. In fact, a recent study from the International Federation of Robotics indicates that every industrial robot that is installed will create 1 or 2 jobs.
