Foxconn to speed up 'robot army' deployment; 20,000 robots already in its factories

Manufacturing giant Foxconn Technology Group is on track with its goal to a create a "million robot army", and already has 20,000 robotic machines in its factories, said the company's CEO Terry Gou on Wednesday.

The company, however, is waiting for the nation's government to improve the regulations for its tech sector. Standards over electronics safety are so low that anyone can get away with selling shoddy mobile phones, said a Foxconn official in December.

"The direction is right, but we need to take time," Gou added. "We think in one or two years this will happen."
