At the Hanover tech fair, there's been a lot of talk about the value of free trade against the backdrop of the EU and Mexico updating their bilateral trade agreement. DW correspondent Steven Beardsley tells us more.
Till Reuter, CEO of German industrial robotics firm Kuka for the last 10 years, will step down next month. The surprise move suggests big changes are afoot at the high-tech manufacturer, in Chinese hands since 2016.
The Chinese government believes that it can become the top tech nation in the world sooner rather than later. Some milestones have already been met with more in sight as China looks to surpass the US, Japan and Korea.
The robots are back, and they're even more networked. The possibilities of automation are growing as this year's Hanover industry fair shows, and more companies are collaborating on AI. Steven Beardsley reports.
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?
