Artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and process automation are reshaping the world of work. Drones have already had a major impact in industries including agriculture, oil & gas, energy, utilities, and construction. And now, ground robots like Spot from Boston Dynamics are bursting onto the scene.

In this eBook, we’ll explore the concept of “physical automation” — the natural evolution of digital transformation that will play out over the next five to ten years. We break this down into three key phases:

  1. Automating data capture
  2. Automating data analysis
  3. Automating data-driven actions

While many businesses are still in phase one, or piloting phase two, all three phases will have a major impact.
