There are two definitions when it comes to the word “sustainable”. Firstly, to cause little or no damage to the environment. Secondly, to continue over a long period of time. The Robot Podcast is BACK for season three and kicking things off by exploring that second definition. There’s no doubt that we’re going through changing times – so how do industries learn to adapt to unpredictable events that influence every corner of the world? Join Fran Scott as she investigates a key solution called “reshoring” or “near shoring”.

Safe to say education has changed a lot over the last few decades. From chalk boards, to computers, coding is now taught from early ages and, with the pandemic, e-learning has ensured that students stay on track. But could we see a time where robots play a vital role in education? Yes, and that time is now. With our constantly changing world, the jobs of tomorrow don’t exist just yet. But if we’ve learnt anything from the Robot Podcast it’s that robots will be key to the future of work and provide the flexibility to tackle any challenge. Join host Fran Scott as she discovers why education today is the starting point of all of this.

Construction is a huge industry across the globe, in fact we need to build 13,000 buildings each day between now and 2050 to support an expected population of 7 billion people just living in cities. And as the world pays more and more attention to the climate, and our consumption of energy, it’s becoming more and more crucial that our construction is sustainable. Join presenter, scientist and engineering fan Fran Scott as she finds out exactly how robots are making this a reality. With thanks to Daniela Mitterberger of MAEID, Shajay Bhooshan of Zaha Hadid Architects, Ulf Hakansson from Skanska Sweden, and ABB’s Managing Director of Robotics and Discrete Automation, Andrea Cassoni.  Part of the ABB Decoded Series of podcasts, The Robot Podcast is a Fresh Air Production. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Technology has transformed how we live our lives and it’s estimated that 127 new devices are connected to the Internet every second around the world.

The EU food and drink industry employs 4.72 million people. In half of the EU’s 27 Member States, the food and drink industry is the biggest manufacturing employer, and robotics plays an important part. According to a recent survey, almost a third of food processing and 94% of packaging operations use robotics, and that’s only going to keep  growing. We live in a world where we want our food delivered almost instantly, but we also want it to be fresh and sustainably sourced. Is that even possible? Host Fran Scott is joined by ABB’s managing director for Consumer Segments and Service Robotics, Marc Segura; Director of the Lincoln Institute for Agri-Food Technology, Professor Simon Pearson; and associate professor for food processing and digitalisation at the University of Lincoln, Dr Janet Bellamy, to find out how the world of robotics is trying to achieve all of that… Part of the ABB Decoded Series of podcasts, The Robot Podcast is a Fresh Air Production.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Collaborative robots are transforming the field of medicine. From lab testing to cleaning hospitals, cobots are releasing medical staff from routine tasks so they can focus on highly skilled and productive work, while ultimately helping more people to receive treatment by dramatically speeding up testing. Host Fran Scott is joined by ABB Robotics Healthcare Global Solutions Line Manager, Chema Collados; Raytheon Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M, Dr Robin R Murphy; and Dr Tom Luby, Director of Texas Medical Centre Innovation, to explore the benefits of having cobots in healthcare.
