More about Automation

Automation is changing the way we live. It is increasingly important within the creative industries as well as manufacturing, retail, financial services, and healthcare, to name just a few sectors. Automation could be seen as the ‘quiet’ revolution – working in the background to assist in creative processes, gradually transforming agriculture through robotics, or re-imagining how we search the internet. We are looking for people to explore the frontiers of automation technology and its applications, to ask: What already exists? What’s new and what’s good in automation? Where are the gaps in the market? What are the challenges? What opportunities are out there? What are the possibilities? Come and join us as a paid Fellow.
