While there is anxiety in certain quarters, our data suggests that 53% of companies are confident that automation will have a positive effect on the workplace, with just 21% fearing the future. In the last 18 months, 17,000 jobs have been displaced by automation at tech-firm Accenture. Yet instead of laying them off, the company has reskilled and repositioned them within the company. Examples such as this further prove that automation isn’t about social destruction, but taking away monotonous tasks which restrict a worker’s creativity.
In this report, we analyse RPA and Artificial intelligence, learning from the many industry leading figures who have both attended and are attending our industry-specific events.
