Millions of people live in fear of being replaced by a robot, but the truth is that robots have not yet lived up to their initially inflated expectations.  Without next generation enterprise software that uses MR to connect people with autonomous robots and AI-driven task optimization, robotics vendors will remain unable to unlock the complexity and scale needed to drive ROI for their customers and investors.  Humans are the key to Flexible Automation, and only with this can robots fulfill their promise.
