Robots Becoming Home Companions

The age of the home robot is rapidly approaching with the world's first "personal robot" companies bringing real products to market. Think Jibo, Future Robot and Softbank and Aldebaran. The convergence of these friendly, multi-tasking machines with cognitive and cloud-based intelligence will mark the crumbling of the final wall between humans and the pervasive acceptance of robots into our everyday lives. As with any new product delivered to consumers, personal robots offer an abundance of opportunities for telecom providers, apps developers and data-driven companies like Google to capitalize on the widespread adoption of these multi-functional (not to mention anthropomorphic) connected devices in the home.

Robots are far more than a buzz word. They are changing the way we work and live on a daily basis. These smart machines are driving a new era of manufacturing productivity, redefining technology markets, inspiring new business models and taking over more and more tasks now performed by humans. In short, robots are transforming our global economic future. In fact, the application of advanced robotics in health care, manufacturing and services could have an annual economic impact of between $1.7 trillion and $4.5 trillion worldwide within the next decade.

Increasingly, robotics innovation is offering companies a competitive business advantage and humans a better quality of life. Robotic hardware combined with cognitive intelligence and cloud computing capabilities signifies a host of new opportunities in advanced manufacturing, transportation logistics, surgery, retail and hospitality services, and even home and family care. It's more than a fad, it's a sea change: By 2025, the number of automatable tasks will increase to 25 percent across ALL market sectors. Robots stepping in to fulfill those tasks will boost productivity by 30 percent in many industries.

In this slideshow, RoboBusiness, the world's must-attend robotics event, takes you on a tour of some of the robots transforming business as we know it and the trends you need to be tracking to stay ahead of the robotics curve. Don't miss seeing these robots live at RoboBusiness, Sept. 23-24, in San Jose, California.
