Automation on Steroids: Robotics + AI
From its very beginning, the promise of the digitized economy was to automate tasks that are too tedious or too error-prone for humans. In recent years, this promise has gotten a lot closer to reality: Autonomous robots inspecting complex objects, transactions being autonomously executed by software, and trustless environments to ensure compliance are just a few examples for businesses becoming far more efficient than they could have been only a few years ago.
