The Countries With The Highest Density Of Robot Workers

The rise of the machines has well and truly started. Data from the International Federation of Robotics reveals that the pace of industrial automation is accelerating across much of the developed world with 74 installed industrial robots per 10,000 employees globally in 2016. By 2020, that increased to 113 across the manufacturing sector. Asia now has a robot density of 118 units per 10,000 workers and that figure is 114 and 103 in Europe and the Americas, respectively . China is one of the countries recording the highest growth levels in industrial automation but nowhere has a robot density like South Korea.

Where Health App Usage Is Most Common

Chinese and Indians are most likely to use health apps but Asians are also the biggest freeloaders when it comes to using your phone or smartwatch to track your health and wellness. This is according to the Statista Global Consumer Survey, which quizzed people on their health app use. Americans were found to be using health apps very commonly, while they were also the most willing to spend money. Using a health app was actually less common in Europe with only 22 to 40 percent of respondents saying they were using one. Use was lowest in Japan at just 12 percent of respondents.

Investment in Space Blasts Off

Over the past two decades, technological progress has led to a renewed interest in space activities and a new global space race involving a multitude of public and private entities. As illustrated in this infographic, based on data published by the Tauri Group, the total value of investments in the space industry has really taken off in recent years. Between the period 2010-2014 and 2015-2019, the total value invested in space companies has increased five-fold. From 2015 to last year, nearly $17 billion of investment was recorded in the sector, which represents significant growth when compared to the $6 billion invested between 2000 and 2014.

Mass Exodus of Retail Stores

According to data compiled by the Wall Street Journal from Coresight Research, retail stores continue to disappear by the hundreds each month. After mass layoffs in April, 1,330 stores closed permanently the following month. While the number of closings trended toward a recovery for June and July, another huge wave of 2,163 closings were observed in August – highlighting how many retail stores in the U.S. continue to struggle even as city and state governments reopen their doors for business.

How Covid-19 Boosted Cycling Investment In Europe

In Europe, some countries have prioritzed and invested heavily in cycling infrastructure for years with the Netherlands and Denmark the two most notable examples. The Covid-19 pandemic has now forced other countries to follow suit as people avoid overcrowded public transportation systems and embrace their bicycles. Data from the European Cyclists’ Federation provides an interesting overview of the countries spending the most on cycling during the pandemic. Finland has spent €7.76 per person on cycling, the most of any European country, followed by Italy (€5.04 per person) and France (€4.91 per person).

The World’s Largest Climate Tech Hubs

With heatwaves, droughts and other extreme weather events becoming more frequent and wildfires wreaking havoc across the globe, the consequences of climate change are becoming more and more visible. And while the calls for more sustainable solutions to many aspects of our everyday lives are growing louder, large established companies often struggle to make bold, radical changes, paving the way for startups to innovate and re-think the way things are done in a given industry. Tesla is possibly the best example of a fast-moving upstart beating industry heavyweights at a game it shouldn’t be winning, considering the goliaths it is up against.

2020’s Battleground States

Outside of Democratic and Republican strongholds, there are some battleground states (also known as swing states), in which the U.S. presidential election will be decided. Whoever takes the most electoral votes from swing states has the best chances of winning the presidency. Texas and Florida play a key role because they have a particularly large number of votes in the Electoral College. According polling averages compiled by RealClearPolitics, Joe Biden is currently well behind in the Lone Star State and narrowly ahead in the Sunshine State. Meanwhile, Trump’s challenger leads in a series of other, albeit smaller, battleground states like Arizona, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

China’s Gigantic Agricultural Production

Despite progressing towards a service society in gigantic steps, China remains a major agricultural producer, especially when it comes to field crops and fruit. In the 2020/21 harvest season, the United States Department of Agriculture projects that 37 percent of peanuts and 29 percent of the world’s rice will be harvested in China, as well as 23 percent of cotton, 22 percent of corn and 18 percent of wheat. This makes China the biggest peanut, rice and wheat producer in the world and the second-biggest producer of corn behind the United States and of cotton behind India.

The Top Issues for Voters in 2020

The United States is a starkly divided country, at least politically. Where this division shows itself most significantly is indicated by a recent Pew Research Center poll which asked Biden and Trump supporters to name issues which are ‘very important’ to their vote in 2020. As this infographic shows, the most important topics for Trump supporters came out as economy and violent crime. While Biden supporters share a similar degree of interest in the economy, health care, the coronavirus outbreak and race and ethnic inequality rated more highly on their list of priorities.

High Times for TikTok

The coronavirus pandemic aided or at least coincided with a high demand for videosharing app TikTok in app stores around the globe. Analytics platform Airnow Data counted almost 76 million monthly downloads in March of 2020 and a still respectable 44.6 million in August. This puts the app firmly ahead of competitors for 2020 downloads.
