Augmenting Human Workers for Robot-Scale Impacts and Productivity

27 Jul 2023
Robots are awesome (for sure), and how Amazon automates its warehouses is mind-blowing, but so much of this technology is incredibly expensive, takes a very long time to implement and is a daunting prospect for many companies in the logistics and associated industries. Good old-fashioned humans are still at the core of what moves product throughout Australia and the world. But what if we could augment those people, train them 15x faster and transform + digitise their human capabilities so they could be 30%+ more productive - as well as being safer?

This is the at the very core of David Francis’ talk: about how Digital Twins, XR, AI computer vision, wearable computing and virtual-kinetic remote training is taking workforces from zero to skilled, from overloaded to guided, from error-filled to near perfect - across Fortune 500’s worldwide. The automation stop-gap of human augmentation is a huge opportunity, and the technology around it is no longer ‘nascent or emerging’.
