Henrik von Scheel on Industry 4.0 and the AI investment opportunity

An interview with Henrik von Scheel, the originator of the Industry 4.0, by Richard Lightbound, ROBO Global. If you’ve ever spent time on an angry sea, you’ve seen first-hand just how powerful a fast-changing storm can be. Industry 4.0, or the fourth industrial revolution, is the biggest storm to come ashore in our history. And of the three waves of this storm, the second—which is happening now—is transforming the world as we know it. And it’s all rooted in Artificial Intelligence. ...

International Manufacturing Technology Show 2018

Last week we attended the International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago, and we returned with increased confidence in our bullish outlook for the robotics and automation market. From what we saw, there is no doubt: the factory of the future is now! The mood for the entire show was clearly positive, and that energy was reflected in a truly record-breaking event. Attendance was up by nearly 8,000, hitting 129,415, and more than 2,500 companies were featured on the exhibition floor, inc...

Market keeping you up at night? Add Robotics & AI to the mix for a better night’s sleep.

If you’re like most investors, you’re longing for a return to the “good old days” of 2017. Although the market has yet to slide into dreaded bear territory, you’re not the only one who can’t sleep at night. Market momentum overall has slowed to a near halt, which can make any investor worry: what’s next? One way to help protect your portfolio against the risk of a downturn (and to finally get that great night’s sleep you’ve been longing for!) is to add robotics, automation, ...

Renishaw is manufacturing the future of 3D Printing

When I say that I work in robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence (RAAI), the first things most people think of are humanoid robots (think Star Wars), AI (think Alexa), or self-driving cars (think Tesla). But the spectrum of RAAI transcends the obvious. ROBO Global index member Renishaw, the oldest and perhaps boldest player in the world of 3D printing, is just one example. Established in 1973, the company is transforming the application of additive manufacturing—more commonly called...

ROS is Fueling Today’s Robotics Renaissance

By Prof. Wyatt Newman, Ph.D. In 1956, Joseph Engelberger founded Unimation, Inc., the world’s first robotics company. It was a promising step toward a future enabled by robots. But over the decades that followed, advancements in robotics were consistently disappointing. Despite research efforts around the world, most robotics projects delivered only demonstrations and curiosities that died in the lab. The reasons were many. First, new projects were nearly always started from scratch. New...

Self-driving car manufacturers are building the world’s most experienced drivers—but it won’t happen overnight

Who doesn’t remember that first time behind the wheel of a car? As a teenager growing up in Minnesota, for me, driving meant one thing: freedom. And that, for the first time ever, I could go wherever I wanted, whenever I wanted, on my own. And, oh man, it was easy. At 16, life was all about me and the open road. Of course, that was more years ago than I like to admit. Today, my daughter isn’t nearly as enthusiastic about driving. Like most of her friends, she is more than happy to rely on...

Carnegie Mellon’s CREATE Lab offers up-close look at the impact of climate change

On Earth Day this year, more than 1 billion people in 192 countries are expected to take part in the largest civic-focused day of action in the world. We’ve come a long way since the first Earth Day on April 20, 1970—almost 50 years ago. Not only are more people than ever taking personal action to help protect the Earth, but we also have tools that finally make it possible to see and make sense of the very real changes that are taking place today. On Earth Day, our team at Carnegie Mellon’...

Even in a down market, the robotics trajectory is up and away!

Investing in a down market requires a higher level of due diligence. While it can feel a bit more daunting, if you’re aiming for long-term gains, you can actually find yourself in a sweet spot—especially if you’re able to identify opportunities that are poised for growth, no matter what the state of the market overall. If you’re seeking a buy low/sell high opportunity (and, quite frankly, who isn’t?), the first place to look may be the exciting and fast-growing universe of robotics. ...

Is “National Security” Trump’s Excuse for a Trade War?

President Trump has finally delivered on his promise of trade protectionism. But by promising to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports on “national security” grounds, President Trump addresses a problem that doesn’t exist—and creates a host of new ones. Several notable economists think the proposed tariffs of 10% on aluminum and 25% on steel will, at least to some extent, hurt—not help—US manufacturing by triggering declines in orders for critical investments such as roboti...
