An industry that can invest in people, is the same industry that can invest in robots
In 1495 Leonardo da Vinci unveiled his robotic knight. This breath-taking, innovative creation was capable of independent motion including sitting down, standing up, moving its head and lifting its own visor. So ground-breaking was the design that it would later go on to inspire elements of NASA’s space programme, almost four hundred years later. We, too, can learn a great deal from da Vinci’s knight and the time it took to find any meaningful purpose. History tells us that the scale and pace of technological innovations such as robotics can often be overestimated.
