In 2015, Myria Research predicted the development of a functional role known as the chief robotics officer, or CRO. This theoretical role or group is appearing in all vertical sectors using robotics and intelligent operational systems (RIOS). As we’ll discuss in this chief robotics officer update, the CRO’s responsibilities include managing the proliferation, integration, and costs of automation to fit corporate agendas.
In 2017, based on extensive interviews with RIOS end users, there is confirmation that the CRO function is very real. And those serving in this capacity are facing increasing corporate expectations for innovation and tangible business outcomes.
The accelerating adoption of robotics, artificial intelligence, and related technologies is shifting the transformational business forces into organizational challenges. As a result, companies have a strong demand for CROs who can translate innovation into competitive advantage rather than just focus on distinct technologies and bottom lines.
