More money for someone (although, as Gecko has mentioned, it may cause unemployment for someone else).
OK, in general, to follow on from Gecko, it is about increased productivity (i.e. more output with less labour), or a strategic or political advantage (e.g. a military advantage), or to provide entertainment (and thus more income for the provider of that entertainment - as the saying goes, give them bread and circus).
