“Robots are becoming increasingly capable of learning. Artificial intelligence helps to adapt robotic systems also to unstructured environments and gives robots even more flexibility. Until now, robots have been repetitive, always working with the same precision. The requirements of the future are different. Our customers demand a flexible, yet individual production in changing settings. Artificial intelligence will help to speed up processes and to make complicated programming easier. But there is no substitute for human experience and human creativity.”
