A German company makes chips for robots that help them to learn "thinking". But the CEO is not happy with the digital strategy of the country and believes if it does not take more risks, it could be left behind.
Once a tech front-runner, Germany now faces the mammoth task of catching up with today's AI giants. Angela Merkel has launched a broad initiative to transform lagging digital infrastructure and paper-based bureaucracy.
Germany is often criticized for sluggish levels of digital investment, particularly in AI. The government wants to invest €3 billion before 2025 to try and close the knowledge gap with world leaders in the field.
Robots have descended upon the world's largest industrial fair by the hundreds. But the big question that reverberates through the trade floor is this: Will fellow robots steal my job?
The future of work doesn't just interest workers. Germany still dreams of being better connected. Yet digitalization can be a curse and a blessing; global leaders need to be honest and fair.
