Re: Robotic World
Yes sfreeves, Cost and KRA for Robots make a big difference here, an average engineer gets paid around $20000 anually keeping this fact in mind what will robot charge us from purchase to mainatainance.

Robotic World
I think that it is great that technology has advanced this far and that we are using it in these ways.  Like said it creates efficiency and often times perfection, but at what cost are we willing to turn to technology and robotics to do every day task that once were managed and completed by humans?

Re: Robots replacing people
Thank's to author for coming up with this blog, i have seen robots working extremely good in automobile industry and i am sure just to place racks or do cabling we would not invest such a high amount on robots..i am curious to know what else are expects we account Robots to work on in DC. This also makes me pleased to understand if we have Robots in DC, i bet my manager would not get chance to shout...lol

Robots replacing people
These are some great examples of connected world/Internet of things technologies at work. The wired farm and auto factory robots can only improve production and lead to more efficient use of equipment. All pluses. But there's a darker discussion here about people. How many manufacturing jobs will be lost?

InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
