SERAI Launch announcement

Sheffield Robotics, and the University of Sheffield, in association with Mercer, is proud to announce the official launch of our report, Skills and Education in Robotics and AI (SERAI).

A report for Sheffield Robotics and the University of Sheffield prepared by consultant Richard Waterstone, SERAI examines the opportunities offered to the UK economy by Industry 4.0 – robotics, AI, the Internet of Things and associated technologies – in terms of productivity, potential national prosperity, and progressive social and economic change.
