Almost every industry in existence involves tasks that are dirty, dull, and dangerous. Nevertheless, they must be done. They can run the gamut from inspecting disaster zones and packaging radioactive waste from nuclear power plants to risky rescue operations. In some cases, the danger is the task itself. In others, it’s an unsafe working environment due to conditions like the presence of toxic dust and other hazardous circumstances. Only recently in human history have we had the opportunity to allow artificial intelligence and automation to handle work better left to machines. This will enable humans to focus on ideas and jobs that require more brainpower and creativity, unlocking new job markets. This panel will feature a discussion around the current state of industrial safety and automation, as well as the ways in which autonomous technology is shaping the future of industry.
