The growth of automation, AI (artificial intelligence), and robotics has been a revolutionizing journey for the way the world functions. This surge of automation, AI, and robotics has been transforming traditional manufacturing and industries in unprecedented ways. The rate of adoption of these technologies has been accelerated, partly due to the pandemic, making the conversation on their implications increasingly relevant. According to a report by McKinsey, 60 percent of all occupations could see at least 30 percent of their constituent tasks automated by 2030. So, what does this mean for the future of work, manufacturing, and the broader economy?

How will the integration of AI, robotics, and automation reshape the landscape of industries and the global workforce? This is the question that “Calvary Robotics” sought to answer in its latest episode hosted by Mike Marseglia, VP Sales and Business Development at Calvary Robotics, along with esteemed guests Jared Glover, CEO of CapSen Robotics, and Michal Diga, P3 Product Director at Stratasys.

In this engaging discussion, several key areas of conversation the panel explored were:

  • The current trends and future prospects in automation, AI, and robotics. Including the forthcoming Automate 2024
  • Real-world applications of these technologies, focusing on 3D bin picking and additive manufacturing.
  • Insights on how businesses are leveraging these technologies for increased efficiency and productivity.

Jared Glover is the CEO of CapSen Robotics, and has spent nearly a decade developing software that gives robotic arms more intelligence and 3D vision, starting with research during his PhD at MIT. 

Michal Diga is the P3 Product Director at Stratasys. She has been instrumental in integrating technology into manufacturing processes globally. Both guests bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise from their respective backgrounds.
