The 21st century has seen the most rapid shifts in how we live – what we do, driven by technologies and will continue to steer at a similar pace. From a time when humans were doing most of the work by hand, innovation led to the formation of tools, making our work efficient. The same tools were used to build machines that made work even more effortless for us. Robots are now the next big thing happening where machines could do almost everything; even build themselves.
