The Coming Robot Revolution – The New Age of Manufacturing

The Robot Revolution will affect hundreds of millions of jobs. Trillions of dollars of wealth created. These are the potential impacts of the coming wave of automation.

Interesting to note that competitive advantage from automation will be a global not just a local phenomena.
