But a division president at perhaps the world’s biggest robotics company says robots won’t kill jobs.
In fact, just the opposite.
If robotics were going to kill jobs, Sami Atiya ought to know. He’s the president of Robotics in Motion, a division of the $34.3 billion ABB Robotics. ABB has 135,000 employees in 53 countries, and an installed base of more than 70,000 control systems connecting 70 million devices, including 300,000 robots being used in factories all over the planet.
