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.
The report also offers an analysis of the skills and training that will be required if the UK is to take advantage of the opportunities offered by Industry 4.0, with particular focus on computer science education, gender, adult skills training, robotics and future employment, and collaborative robotics. The report examines an overview of current skills initiatives, and makes recommendations on much-needed actions and policies that can ready the UK to meet the challenges of the future economy.
The official launch of the report will be hosted by Mercer, the global consultancy firm.
9.30 – 13.30
Mercer, Tower Place East, London EC3R 5BU
In addition to Richard introducing his findings, other speakers from education, industry, and policy-making will also offer their thoughts on how to prepare for the future. Hands-on demonstrations of robots, telepresence, and new learning platforms will be provided by Cyberselves.
