Are robots really about to take over the world? Why sales of robots have grown slowly. Future of AI / Artificial intelligence. Impact of robots and automation on jobs / unemployment and economic growth - robotics and AI keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Despite all the talk of robots taking over most menial jobs and putting tens of millions out of work, the growth of robots in factories has been slow – up from 92,000 to a mere 387,000 a year from 2000 to 2017. A third of that increase was in 2017. Compare this to growth of smartphones, for instance, and the pace is still snail-like. Sales of such robots are likely to increase by around 10-15% a year – mostly confined to the auto industry, which owns most robots in America. Robots will become cheaper and more intelligent, but smaller models will still cost over $20,000 each in 2020.

Expect rapid growth in military robots – with tens of thousands of drones owned by the Pentagon alone, raising the prospect of swarms of small, semi-autonomous flying robots being thrown into the air above a major battle zone. “Suicide drones” will soon be available on the open market, able to fly 80 miles an hour, to detonate explosives at any target 40 miles away.

Future of Global Trade, Logistics and Supply Chain Management- scandal of empty containers and boom in regional trade v global. Reducing supply chain risks and disruptions from more global events like the COVID pandemic - keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Moving a container 150km by lorry from Birmingham to Southampton costs the same as moving the same container 10,000km by sea from Southampton to Beijing. It is cheaper to transport melons from Istanbul to Naples than to drive melons from a village up in the Italian mountains, to the same market.  This overwhelmingly huge difference in freight costs will be one of the single greatest drivers of future global trade, despite increased energy costs. It is the primary reason why global trade has grown at twice the rate of global production over the last 30 years.

Look out for trade growth in Latin America and Africa – both of which have huge manufacturing potential close to the sea. Areas with major container ports will on average grow up to 40% faster over the next three decades than cities, regions or nations that are landlocked.

Expect over $28 trillion a year of global trade by 2030, up from more than $18 trillion in 2019. Global trade will continue to grow around 25-35% faster on average than the entire global economy. For two decades, the use of shipping containers grew twice as fast as international trade, as companies seized the opportunity to be more efficient. But the container revolution is now complete, and so the growth difference will ease.

Impact of COVID on strategies for Manufacturing, Logistics and Supply Chains. Board strategy reviews for manufacturing. Coronavirus keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

What will be the impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic on manufacturing, logistics and supply chains? As a physician by first training and Futurist advisor / keynote speaker on manufacturing trends and logistics strategy to over 400 of the world's largest 2000 companies, across every industry and region, with a proven track record of longer term forecasting over the last 25+ years, here are some guiding principles to the future of manufacturing, logistics and supply chains as a result of Coronavirus / COVID-19.

I predicted many times future global threats from new pandemics

I have warned for over two decades about significant threats to manufacturing, logistics and supply chains from new mutant viruses which appear roughly once a year, usually emerging in Southern China (for reasons unclear), just one of many potential Wild Cards that could strike down successful global manufacturing business.  For example, when the SARS outbreak began to threaten our world in 2003, my media warnings about the threats from new mutant viruses reached an audience of over 300 million.

Future of Manufacturing 4.0 + Industry 4.0. Automation, robotics, AI, Big Data and Internet of Things. Impact on manufacturing, logistics and supply chain. Factory visit to Serge Ferrari (make roofing membranes) before Futurist keynote by Patrick Dixon

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Comment on visit to Serge Ferrari factory.

They make a stunning range of membranes for things like canopies over concert halls or football stadiums. It's easy to get swept along by a story about high-tech, digital controls. automation and robotics but the future of manufacturing is also about inspiring people to achieve new levels of excellence and performance, reliability and cost control. Yes we need all these digital tools, but you still need people to design, install, monitor and manage, and that means motivating high performance teams every day to make the difference.

"I always enjoy factory visits - the physicality of it all is exciting, with perfection the constant goal, every time, without interruption in a continuous process which is always astonishing to watch".

10 Truths about Brexit - cut through the media nonsense and political posturing. Why longer term impact will be less than many think. How border issues between UK and Ireland will be resolved - in event of a No Deal Brexit. ARTICLE

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Many of my previous predictions have turned out to be correct as of September 2018: for example no immediate economic meltdown, fall in currency leads to rise in exports and so on.  

Here is a common sense view of what is likely to happen in the event that the EU and UK fail to achieve an agreement before the UK leaves the EU.  

1. The pound will fall further against the Euro

This will make all exports of goods and services even more affordable for other nations to buy, and will make imports even more expensive.  If the pound falls a further 10% post Brexit, then the total fall since the vote to leave will be 25%.

2. EU import taxes will be almost irrelevant to UK exports

Let us take an average tax of 5% on any UK goods imported into the EU from the UK, and the other way round.  How much impact would that actually have when you take the new exchange rate into account?

British goods will be net 20% cheaper for French or German people to buy than before.  That's huge by any measure.

French and German goods will be net 30% more expensive for British people to buy.  Even more significant.

Net impact: far greater on companies exporting to the UK.  In any case, the rest of the world takes more UK goods than the EU, and the EU is rapidly falling as an export destination.

Turn Green into Gold - Sustainable Business - how innovations in manufacturing and energy production are saving resources, and protecting our future

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

More than $40 trillion will be spent over the next 30 years as nations adapt to climate change and other environmental concerns. The future will be driven not by technology or innovation but by emotion – by the choices of ordinary men and women and the passion they feel about these things. They are already influencing companies and governments, who are changing at astonishing speed. Just 3 years ago it was hard to find a national leader who was talking about climate change. No it is hard to find one that does not. That’s today. Expect more tomorrow. So how can CIOs, software and hardware integrators, system analysts and others help turn Green into Gold?

How to save 110kms of truck driving across the EU each year: Product Exchanges - cut logistics costs, manufacturing cost - keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Product exchanges are a great way for manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers to save money. Every day hundreds of thousands of identical products pass each other on highways.  Imagine two online retailers selling the same DVD player, in Berlin and London.  The Berlin retailer wins an order from a customer near London.  On the same day, the retailer in London receives an order for an identical product from a customer near Berlin...
