Sunak urged to deploy immediate investment to tackle inflation crisis
Angelo Cangelosi, a robotics professor at the University of Manchester, said: "The economy, in general, can benefit from more effective technology".
Robots can help businesses create more products at lower costs and in turn, the costs will become cheaper for consumers, he told Express.co.uk.
"The UK government has started investing in robotics in the last five to 10 years but if we really want to make this one of the significant areas of growth in the country, then it will require continued investment or increased investment", Professor Cangelosi added.
The robotics professor said the government must stop "delaying" investments in robotics to help "make things work better and cost less".
