An increasing number of enterprises are considering the adoption of robotics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine IT that can expedite and make more efficient the execution of routine tasks. While we already think of robotics as important in use cases such as manufacturing, oil and gas exploration and drones, there are quite a few others you may not have considered.
