Robots and machines could soon replace humans in the workplace as artificial intelligence improves. Imagine having colleagues controlled by computers. Part 2: https://youtu.be/NGUbboTjT18
Society is facing radical changes. Industry 4.0 - the fourth industrial revolution - is the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. Artificial intelligence is constantly gaining ground.
The digital era and the Internet are not just changing industrial production processes. An increasing number of jobless people are facing stiff competition from intelligent machines.

Workers cost money and employers are out to minimize labor costs.

Industry 4.0 poses a great challenge to the world as we know it and millions of people could lose out in the process. Find out more in 'Robitics - Impacting the Workplace'. _______
