    Panel Digitalization/AI/Machine Learning/Robotics/Cybersecurity

    Recently, the energy industry has started deploying new types of semiautonomous robots, such as animal-like crawlers and four-legged systems. Although robotic technologies have been applied for years in drilling and surveillance, the recent expansion of robotics systems appears indispensable for the energy industry to manage its asset base in the most efficient and low-carbon manner. What acceleration of developments and deployments of robotics can the energy industry expect? What are potential ethical and legal boundaries that may hamper wide-scale adoption? How will the workforce and operating models transform through the broader introduction of robotic systems?
