Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

“Computers will overtake humans with AI within the next 100 years. When that happens, we need to make sure that computers have goals aligned with ours.”- Stephen Hawking

As predicted by the renowned scientist and technological revolutionary, artificial intelligence is making its way slowly, steadily, into the domain of everyday lives.

Artificial intelligence and robotics are a robust amalgamation of efficiency and speed. Throughout the years, artificial intelligence, with its application into robotics has become a common phenomenon, especially when the robot Sophia gained citizenship status recently. It is slowly an integration of human and robot tendencies which have great potential for success and prosperity.

At the crux, artificial intelligence is when human intelligence and processes are stimulated with computer systems. Some of these features include learning, reasoning, and also, self-correction. The most prominent Artificial intelligence elements include expertise, speech recognition, machine vision, facial recognition, and more.


The history of artificial intelligence can be traced back to not quite long ago. Artificial intelligence and robotics work as emerging technologies in the field of technological revolution. Though the idea that inanimate and non-living objects performing intelligent functions was a corollary of the Green and Chinese mythology as well.

The substantial origin can be regarded as the time in 1956 when in the Dartmouth College, the term artificial intelligence came into being. Marvin Minsky was supportive of this concept and thus regarded this technology as one with great potential.

Recently, aspects like Chatbot, and more have brought new dimensions to it. Updated version several tests escalated this technology into the robust revolution it is today.

There are several types of artificial intelligence and robotics including reactive machines, limited memory, theory of mind, self-awareness, and more.

Applications Of Artificial Intelligence

1)   Healthcare: Artificial intelligence and robotics have taken healthcare by a storm. It helps in garnering efficiency, precision, and much more. It is not prone to mistakes which makes it suitable for a field like health

2)   Business: in this field, highly repetitive tasks can be done efficiently. The algorithms integrated into analytics will help garner technology like chatbots and more. It also aids in automation of certain positions.

3)   Education: artificial intelligence and robotics is revolutionary in the field of education. It can better train the educators, adapt to the needs of the students, provide additional support, and much more.

4)   Finance: this is where personal data collection and providing financial planning can be best achieved.

5)   Law: scanning through documents, saving time, providing essential data efficiently, are all the tasks which artificial intelligence and robotics can complete.

6)   Manufacturing: the manual labour can be significantly shifted to these automated devices.

There are several advantages and disadvantages attached in the form of pros and cons to this technology.

Pros include, lessening the space for error, right decision making, implementing artificial intelligence in the field of risky situations like military and more. It can also work on repetitive tasks.

Cons include, that it is too expensive to implement in bulk scenarios. Moreover, it increases the human dependency on machinery where there is a very fine line between using the help of robots and letting robots use us. Additionally, it will increase unemployment as it works to reduce human labour, and there is a restricted amount of work that AI can do.

Thus, the future, although is bright in terms of better accessibility, enhancing the human interaction interface and more. Perhaps its biggest competition is the increased use of Robotics and machine learning. The existing technologies are being made more intelligent which may give competition to the creation of new AI altogether. However, this is a field where substantial potential lies and incomparable progress can be made.
