The Rise of Automation
The hum of machines as they descend on a dystopian landscape. The whirring of dusty fans as a Cold War era supercomputer becomes sentient. An ominous red glow beaming from a cyclopean robot scanning for lifeforms – is this the beginning of a bot revolution?
Sci-fi and horror genres are permeated with this idea of human-made bots extending past our control. But is it merely a trope of science fiction to be enjoyed in films and comics, or is there validity to the fear of automation?
The truth is, the rise of automation is already here – but that’s not a bad thing. Businesses everywhere are experiencing the benefits of automating mundane and data-heavy tasks with software that enables real people to focus on knowledge-based work that drives change.
