The Robot Revolution:
Future of Work in Wales (Part 1)


To mark the launch of the Review of Digital Innovation for the Economy and the Future of Work in Wales, we have launched a podcast series in which we will be speaking to leading digital experts on the challenges and opportunities that advancements in technology can bring.

The Digital Innovation Review was commissioned by the Welsh Government to explore how the rapid advances in digital innovation are likely to impact the economy and future of work in Wales.

Part 1: The “Robot Revolution” (30 mins)

The panel provides an introduction to the Digital Innovation Review, before taking part in a discussion on the impact technological advancements and automation will have on the workplace. Is there any truth in the robot revolution? The experts also analyse how Wales compares to other countries when it comes to digital innovation.

We will discuss the key themes and wide range of policy recommendations identified by the report with the Chair of the Review, Professor Phillip Brown from Cardiff University. Also featured within the podcast are Tegid Roberts and Marsha Ward, members of the expert panel; a group of influential business leaders, academics, practitioners and entrepreneurs in digital innovation who have provided ongoing consultation on the review.

The Welsh Government is the devolved Government for Wales.

They are working to help improve the lives of people in Wales and make our nation a better place in which to live and work.

The Welsh Government consists of:

The First Minister
Welsh Ministers
The Counsel General
Deputy Ministers.

They are supported by civil servants who work across devolved areas that include key areas of public life such as health, education and the environment.

They aim to be open and responsive to the needs of citizens and communities and are one of the few governments in the world that publishes Cabinet minutes and papers. Responsibility for most key areas of public life including health, education and environment is devolved.

With offices across Wales, including Merthyr Tydfil, Aberystwyth and Llandudno Junction, they are getting closer to the people they serve.
