Robots are building pallets, cobots give us superhuman strength, self-driving vehicles swarm airports. We live in a time where the logistics industry seems to supercharge everything with robotics - even complex tasks. That’s scary, yet reasonable.
Right now, the question is not of machines or technology replacing humans. Or is it?
This panel discusses the “perfect match” of humans and machines collaborating, and when it makes sense to take humans out of the equation. Even technicians?
