Robot and Human Collaboration
Robots are changing the market, and these changes are benefitting companies. Peggy Smedley explains how cobots, collaborative robots, are enhancing human productivity. Company leaders continue to bring automation to the jobsite. She explains that not every job can be 100% automated, so attention to retraining and reskilling workers is required. Human skills that will remain valuable in the face of automation include analytical, creative, and complex thinking, and even emotional intelligence. Cobots compliment human capabilities by being available in physical work environments. In the end, Peggy advises companies to invest in reskilling human workers for new opportunities in different roles.
