Robots made in France are increasingly replacing human workers as far afield as the United States, as the demand for automation rises. Sepro Robotique, a global based in La Roche-sur-Yon (Vendée, Pays de la Loire) run by founder Jean-Michel Renaudeau, has become a significant supplier of automated robots worldwide, including to the USA, explains news source FranceInfo in its Envoyé Special report. The robots are primarily used for complex elements of heavy construction work such as car-making, with one of Renaudeau’s biggest customers based in Detroit - a city famous for its automobile industry. Robots are particularly good at managing intricate plastic parts, such as those found in car engines, Renaudeau explains. The factory has no human workers on the factory floor, with all the work done by the French-made robots, who can work for 12 hours without a break, and do not even need light or heat to function. Human workers only come in at the last stages, to check stock, verify that the construction has been done correctly, and to ship the parts to their next production line. Other industries are also seeing robots take over from human jobs, including, for example, in the postal service. In China, some parcel delivery companies are already making use of hundreds of small robots, as they can easily and quickly sort letters and move parcels from one part of the delivery office to another, without human error or needing to take a break. Renaudeau appears candid in face of criticism that robots such as these are replacing human workers. “Of course they are,” he says, speaking to FranceInfo. “We know that on the one hand, we are pursuing something [automation] inevitable, and seeing technological progress. On the other hand, we need to ask ourselves, what is going to happen to people who are not adapted [to the new workforce]?” And yet, those in favour of robot automation continually affirm that the age of robot workers will actually create more jobs - in this new sector - than those it is accused of replacing.

China is building a giant $2.1 billion research park dedicated to developing A.I. China is planning to build a 13.8 billion yuan ($2.1 billion) technology park for the development of artificial intelligence It will be built within five years and situated in the suburban Mentougou district in Beijing Last year, China laid out plans to become a world leader in AI by 2030 Arjun Kharpal | @ArjunKharpal Published 6 Hours Ago CNBC.com Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference on March 13, 2015 in Beijing, China. Feng Li | Getty Images Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference on March 13, 2015 in Beijing, China. China is planning to build a 13.8 billion yuan ($2.1 billion) technology park dedicated to developing artificial intelligence (AI), state-backed news agency Xinhua reported Wednesday. The campus will be constructed within five years and situated in the suburban Mentougou district in western Beijing. It will cover 54.87 hectares, Xinhua said. The technology park will be home to around 400 businesses and is expected to create an annual output value of about 50 billion yuan. High-speed big data, cloud computing, biometrics and so-called deep learning, a strand of AI, will be the focus of the new park. It will also have 5G mobile internet, a super computer and cloud services, according to Xinhua. The news follows the Chinese government's announcement in July 2017 that laid out plans for the country to become a world leader in AI by 2013, with the aim of making the industry worth 1 trillion yuan. China wants to make a "major breakthrough" in AI technology by 2025. Beijing hopes to help accelerate the commercialization of AI in China in areas such as smart cities, but is also eyeing its military capabilities, something that could worry the broader international community. Already, the U.S. is taking note. A recent Pentagon report showed how worried Washington was about Chinese firms investing in U.S. start-ups, suggesting that there might need to be tighter controls around this. On Tuesday, the U.S. government failed to approve MoneyGram's multi-million-dollar merger with Ant Financial, an affiliate of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba. Some experts including noted venture capitalist Jim Breyer have compared the competition between the U.S. and China in AI to the "space race of the '50s." However, he did say that the U.S. will lead China in AI. "I don't think they'll (China) be number one, because I think there's still a level of genius and creativity in Silicon Valley that persists and will always persist," Breyer said during a CNBC-hosted panel in November. Xinhua said the Beijing park will be developed by Zhongguancun Development Group, which will seek partnership with Chinese and overseas universities, research institutes and large enterprises to establish a number of research hubs on the premises. These will include a "national-level" artificial intelligence lab, Xinhua said. Arjun KharpalTechnology Correspondent

31/12/2017 | 6:11 Zurich (awp / ats) - The trend of recent years to relocate production to low-cost countries is going to be reversed, according to Peter Voser, president of Zurich's ABB industrial group. According to him, the digitization makes it possible to bring the manufacturing sites closer to the sales markets. The digital transformation implies that products are increasingly adapted to individual customers, says Voser in an interview published Sunday by the NZZ am Sonntag. This change will benefit Europe, including Switzerland, which lost many jobs in the industrial sector in 2017. ABB has increased its productivity by about 30% in a Mannheim plant (D), which has allowed it to produce small series of less than 100 units in situ, says the leader. This performance was only possible thanks to robots, which are in turn programmed by skilled workers. Positive impact on unemployment Voser says he's convinced that robots not only increase productivity, they also have a positive impact on jobs. Countries, which use a particularly large number of robots, have a very low unemployment rate, he notes. But, he continues, it only works if the education system is adapted. He calls on Switzerland, and in particular companies, to do more. The technical progress is so fast today, that people aged 35 to 40 have to train again, he notes. And you have to do it again at age 50. Concerning the relocation of almost all of ABB Sécheron's production to Poland, Mr Voser believes that the plant in Geneva has too high production costs and is not competitive. ABB wants to outsource manufacturing, but keep competitive, forward-looking, research-oriented jobs.

(CercleFinance.com) - The Swiss-Swedish engineering group ABB announces an agreement with the Japanese group Kawasaki Heavy Industries, with the aim of sharing knowledge and promoting the benefits of collaborative robots ('cobots'). The cooperation will focus on robots with double arm designs, which allow tasks like assembling small electronic devices. A first demonstration is planned at the International Robot Exhibition, to be held in Tokyo this week.

85% UK businesses to invest in artificial intelligence by 2020 Posted on 20 Nov 2017 by Marc Hauschild THE MANUFACTURER Almost nine in ten (85%) of senior executives plan to invest in artificial intelligence and the internet of things by 2020, according to new survey. 85% of senior executives plan to invest in artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT) by 2020. The findings come from the first edition of a new regular report the Digital Disruption Index. The survey, conducted by Deloitte, will track investment in digital technologies and create a detailed picture of their impact on the largest and most influential business and public-sector bodies. The first edition includes responses from 51 organisations with a combined market value of £229bn. Over half of survey respondents expect that by 2020, they will invest more than £10m in digital technologies and ways of working – such as AI, cloud, robotics, blockchain, analytics, the IoT, and virtual and augmented reality. More than 70% say they will invest in robotics, 63% in augmented and virtual reality, 62% in wearables, 54% in biometrics (such as voice and finger recognition), and 43%in blockchain. This year alone, 30% of UK organisations will invest more than £10m in these technologies. But when compared with corporate IT budgets this represents a rather modest amount of investment. According to separate Deloitte research, the majority of IT functions have budgets of over £20m, while a quarter of corporate IT functions spend more than £75m annually. As a likely consequence, at this stage only 9% of executives believe that UK companies are world leading at exploring and implementing digital technologies and ways of working. Paul Thompson, UK digital transformation leader at Deloitte, explains: “The first edition of the index shows that few UK businesses are successfully exploiting digital technologies and ways of working. Strategies are not coherent, investment levels are modest and the relevant skills are in short supply. As a result, the UK isn’t living up to its digital potential.” Rise of artificial intelligence Of all of the digital technologies surveyed, executives believe AI will have the biggest impact on their organisations in the future. Investment in AI at this stage remains modest though, with only 22% having already invested in it. Of those that have invested, only a third expect to spend more than £1m in 2017. This suggests that organisations are currently testing with pilots, rather than large scale deployments. Almost 80% of leaders (77%) expect AI to disrupt their industries. Just under half expect their workforce to get smaller as they adopt AI, but only 8% believe AI will directly replace human activity. Over a third believe AI will be used to augment expertise, with a focus on improving human decision-making. Thompson adds: “AI will have a profound impact on the future of work. Our view is that human and machine intelligence complement each other, and that AI should not simply be seen as a substitute. Humans working with AI will achieve better outcomes than AI alone, and UK businesses need to get this careful balance right.” The digital skills gap Only 20% of leaders believe there are enough school leavers and graduates entering the labour market with the appropriate digital skills and experience. Three-quarters of executives face challenges recruiting the right digital skills. Leaders say data scientists and analysts are the most important roles for a successful digital strategy, but these are also the most difficult digital roles to retain and recruit. Over half of leaders say their organisation’s learning and development curriculum does not support their digital strategy. 45% say that their organisation does not provide them and other leaders with the resources needed, such as training and coaching through a variety of multimedia channels, to develop their own digital skills. Thompson concludes: “The UK has the opportunity to be a market-leader in harnessing and exploiting the opportunities digital brings, including increased productivity and driving growth. But it’s clear that digital skills, at all levels, are in short supply and high demand. “In our view, digital represents both a business and public policy issue which needs educators, policymakers and business to work more closely together, in order to meet the current and future demands of the UK’s economy.”
