The Future is Robotics!

Gone are the days when the role of assistive devices in human life was pure fiction and tales. Today, the fast-evolving field of robotics has become an integral part of human life.

As the African continent strives for industrialization, it is important to note that efficient. productive yet cheaper work strategies across key areas such as manufacturing, agriculture, education, healthcare, among others, shall be pivoted around automated devices.

According to a publication on www.techjury.net on July 28, 2020, 88% of businesses worldwide plan to adopt robotic automation into their infrastructure, with robotics already employing about 150,000 people worldwide in engineering and assembly jobs. Between 2017 and 2020, the number of industrial robots alone installed across industries worldwide could exceed a total of 3.05 million, revealed by the Global Robotics Industry statistics. Africa’s advancement in robotics means grooming local experts, who understand the peculiar needs of the continent, and can apply the knowledge perfectly to build robots that can perform high-risk and complex tasks.
