The digital transformation of industry employs some of the coolest tools—drones and underwater sensors, artificial intelligence and virtual reality. But at the heart of these programs are the humans who develop and work alongside their digital counterparts to make all of this transformation stuff actually work.

Even when we’re talking about robots, we’re talking about people.
