Lessons from China on how to drive sustainable growth

Sustainable change requires us to bring on board all those who are affected.

Lessons from China on how to drive sustainable growth

Journalists, politicians and regular citizens have spent much time in recent years discussing the ‘Chinese dream’. It’s our vision of China’s journey into the future. I believe the Chinese dream will see us break the link between growing incomes, rising production and degradation of the environment. Our businesses should continue to grow even as our […]

5G to enhance manufacturing efficiency

5G will bring production to a whole new level of efficiency.

5G to enhance manufacturing efficiency

More than one million people have subscribed to a 5G mobile contract in South Korea, meaning demand for the high-speed technology has easily outpaced the country’s adoption of 4G. The need for speed isn’t just essential for rapid telecommunication — we’d all rather communicate using faster and more reliable methods.  5G has created quite the […]

Your future co-workers could be a swarm of robots

But Chapman says there’s also an increasing opportunity for human-robot interaction and collaboration—combining forces to solve society’s grand challenges.

Your future co-workers could be a swarm of robots

In the future, swarms of robots could help us perform tasks from search and rescue to farming. Imagine there’s a flock of aerial robots searching for a lost hiker, for example. They have to cover a large area of remote bush and a central commander won’t work because they’re so spread out. So, instead, the […]
