The world is getting more digital these days. The good news – according to a new survey by Hyperscience – is that almost 81% of the respondents believe automation is the key to driving workplace development and efficiency. 63% of these pro-automation respondents were millennials, which are the largest cohort in the world today.


More good news that came to light from the survey was that 75% of the respondents claimed good knowledge of using automation. Additionally, they displayed a greater willingness to adopt newer technology. This signifies a positive shift from a few years ago, where fewer employees signified confidence in automation.


Businesses respond to millennial support


Companies across industries are reacting quickly to take advantage of millennial support of automation. Leading content writing giant Grammarly recently spent $200 million to further develop their AI-powered editing tool. AI enables the company to leverage advanced Natural Language Processing (NLP) abilities, which can help improve content quality significantly.


In fact, it’s not just Grammarly that has leaped onto the NLP boat. Almost 60% of tech giants have stated that their NLP budgets have expanded by more than 10% in the past year.


NLP aside, companies are also investing in smarter and powerful applications. Like Microsoft, which has increased its request limits for Power Apps. This is expected to help businesses take on more customers without compromising on their functionality, support, and service delivery.


Finally, the dawn of robots has begun. A Japanese cafe is one of the first in the world to use robots to help its staff – which primarily comprises people with disabilities – to work effortlessly from home.


With millennial support for automation increasing by the day, many more such inventions are expected to take the world by storm.
