  1. 5G: enabling innovation in robotics and automation

    In this edition we look at how 5G telecom technologies will be a critical element in enabling a broad range of novel applications and innovations in the field of robotics and automation.

  2. A catalyst for digitalization

    In this month's Thematic Insight, we look at how some businesses have seen an increase in demand for their products as a result of the current situation.

  3. The future cooperation between man and computer

    Technology continues to advance, following a path of exponential progress predicted with prophetic accuracy by the co-founder of Intel, Gordon Moore in 19651. In our lifetimes we are witnessing computers, machines and robots steady becoming smarter, faster and easier to use. As their capability increases, they are able to perform a range of tasks, both physical and intellectual, more effectively than humans, and more of our daily tasks are being simplified and automated.

  4. Automated the long tail

    Automated the long tail

    If you have shopped online, the chances are you have benefitted, perhaps unknowingly, from "the long tail." The phrase, as it relates to e-commerce, was brought into common usage by Chris Anderson, the editor of Wired magazine in his 2004 article, "The Long Tail" and later in a book of the same name.1

  5. Elevo’s microbes modulate and boost the immune system

    Elevo’s microbes modulate and boost the immune system

    The structural forces that are driving change are opening up entirely new investment opportunities. Against the dynamic global backdrop, these opportunities are by no means easy to identify and structure. Credit Suisse Asset Management has therefore defined four drivers of change and developed thematic funds covering the relevant areas of investment focus: robotics, protection and security, digital health, and infrastructure. A strict best practice approach is adopted to selecting individual securities, as the case study below illustrates.1

  6. The technology race in Electric Vehicles

    The technology race in Electric Vehicles

    The Climate Change topic has captured the public and media interest for quite some time now. With the popularity rise of this theme, other related topics rode the same wave and became object of interest for the mainstream media.

  7. “Robots and humans can make a good team.”

    When it comes to solving highly structured problems, robots are often already better than humans. To take the example of agriculture, robots can continuously monitor parcels of land to ensure the optimal use of water, fertilizers, or pesticides.

  8. Robotics & Automation: The productivity paradox

    Robotics & Automation: The productivity paradox

    Advances in technology herald the dawn of a new era. Artificial Intelligence or “A.I.” enabled by super-fast computers and accessed over high-speed wireless internet connections, will revolutionize the way we work and live.

  9. Robotics & Automation: Driving towards an autonomous future

    Robotics & Automation: Driving towards an autonomous future

    In this fast moving world people are easily distracted, especially it seems when driving. Behind the wheel for a few hours we might become sleepy or bored, perhaps we scan through the channels on the radio, attempt to drink a cup of coffee or eat a sandwich, fiddle with the car navigation system, or turn around to tell the kids to behave.
