The technology landscape changes at breakneck speed, alters the way we conduct business and boosts our productivity levels. Robots and hyper automation are two factors contributing to the transformation we are witnessing in technology today. The influence that robots and hyper automation will have on the world is only beginning to be seen and will undoubtedly contribute major changes and benefits to the industry well into the future.
Robots have long been used in the manufacturing world to optimize processes and improve overall efficiencies. And though robotic automation is nothing new, its ability to revolutionize the business world continues to surge.
Robots have played an essential role in healthcare in recent years and it is likely that trend will continue to grow. Surgeons have reaped the benefits of working with robots on minimally invasive surgeries as robots have been assisting in the surgical suite for some time.
In the future it is expected that robots will serve in other healthcare support roles like assisting with patient rehabilitation, packaging medical devices, and targeting therapy such as radiation to a specific part of the body.
The innovative technology advances attributed to robots are not limited to healthcare and transcend industry and purpose. In fact, robots are slated to be a major part of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
When digitization is combined with improved connectivity and artificial intelligence, the result is hyper automation. Hyper automation incorporates artificial intelligence and machine learning into existing systems with the goal of achieving more efficient and updated business solutions.
Hyper automation can have immense benefits for a company. However, the concept is complex, requires monitoring, and involves continuous assessment. Additionally, it is necessary to address compliance, consistency, and security when scaling operations.
Robots and hyper automation are revolutionary technology trends to watch in 2020 and in years to come. Partnering with a technology services provider who has a deep understanding of these trends can be beneficial to your business.
