Bye bye bricklayers?

October 09, 2016 | Phil Fersht

When you see major advances in disruptive robotics, such as the soon-to-be-unveiled Hadrian X, which claims to build a house in two days, moving four times faster than human construction workers, you realize that making invoice process workflows more automated is small-time, when it comes to achieving real robotic efficiencies:

The robot, named Hadrian after the Roman emperor who built defence walls in England, is being primed to work day and night, lay 1,000 bricks per hour, and could potentially build 150 homes in a single year. That's a lot of construction workers who may just not be needed anymore... and where you get genuine hard cost savings because you're removing actual labor, not merely automating some annoying manual steps in a process chain.
