9 MOST ADVANCED ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ROBOTS IN THE WORLD
Robots had been in existence before the artificial intelligence itself but many may still wonder what we mean when we say ‘artificial intelligence Robot’ if you belong to such a category here is a simple explanation to your imagination:
A Robot is an automatic machine that can execute any task without human control. The robot can be working based on already preset mechanically-controlled mechanisms, computer-based-written programs or software, or electrical instrumentation arrangements such as timer-based automation systems.
In other words, robots can work with any form of automation method just to achieve their independent means of operation.
However, the term ‘Robot’ differs from ‘Artificial Intelligence Robot’. Artificial intelligence robot is a new technology, a new way of making robots made possible by Robotic Engineering technology.
It is an advancement to the already existing method of Robotics, it is evidence of the gap between old Robotics and modern Robotics, it is not a fictional name rather a clear distinction between ordinary robots versus advanced robots.
To know exactly what makes the difference between the two names, let us use an example to make the explanation clear to you. Military Robots made in the early stage of technological advancements were not fully autonomous because some used wired-remote control while some use mechanical mechanisms to operate.
Automatic doors made in the early stage of technological advancement have switch connections buried beneath the entrance and exit floors of the doors. Such that when someone or object matches on the surface when moving towards the door the circuit connection of the automated system will be closed.
Thereby causing the electric motor that forces the door to either close or open to commence its expected action, such doors operate efficiently as robotic doors. This is because they are open and close as you match the floor when moving towards the door and when walking away from the door.
However, artificial intelligence robots made a clear distinction from the already existing technology. Based on the given example, most modern military robots are now using artificial intelligence technology.
The robots make use of sensors, independently-written programs (software) that can work efficiently with mobile apps, rechargeable batteries, different sizes of electric motors, hydraulic and pneumatic systems, etc.
The numerous features of artificial intelligence have made artificial intelligence robots recognize voices, fingerprints, pictures, facial recognition, recall past events, and able to fully mimic human behaviors autonomously.
The modern military robot can wirelessly be programmed to invade enemies’ camps, carry out physical combat, and make a retreat if it senses danger or injury, such was not possible for the previous military robots.
Also, the modern robotic doors are fully automated using sensors and written programs (software), they can sense approaching objects such as humans or animals and send a signal to the server to activate the electric switch that controls the electric motor executing the close and open commands of the doors.
The good aspect of this technology is that multiple doors can be synchronized to work with single software making it easy to close the entire doors in a building with a single command as well as open the entire doors with a single command, this feature is very essential in terms of enhancing the security systems of modern buildings.
Modern devices have been able to function efficiently with facial recognition, voice commands, fingerprint passwords, and lots more based on sensors and software synchronization. Therefore, basically, we can say that artificial intelligence is all about sensors and software synchronizations leading to autonomous or self-executing operations of modern devices.
Recent numbers of inventions in robotics have made enthusiasts become keen on the most sophisticated robots made so far by scientists. Some believe robot stories are only in movies and video games but not really in the actual world application. This belief had been in the mind of many with little knowledge about modern technology.
However, that is not true. Research had been in place to bring most of the fictional robot movies you watch into reality and the results are not far from what you watch in science movies.
For instance, over fifty sophisticated artificial intelligence robots had been made so far to perform multiple tasks based on the condition it is exposed to at any given time example of such robot is the Sophia Humanoid robot made by Hanson Robotics, the Digit Robot made by Agility Robotics, the Cheetah Robot is known as Spot made by Boston Dynamics, Atlas a super dynamic humanoid made by Boston Dynamics and lots more.
While hundreds of artificial intelligence robots had been made to perform specific tasks examples are a vacuum Robot for home and office floor cleaning, a Dishwashing robot for washing used plates in the kitchen, a table tennis playing robot, face-make up robot used for female face beautification, and lots more.
We are going to discuss the most advanced artificial intelligence robots made so far by humans.
These robots do not necessarily mean they are the only advanced robots so far rather, they are the ones that have been tested practically with outstanding excellent results in their expected tasks and have been commercialized meaning that anyone can place an order for any of them.
Currently, the following list of robots have been classified as the most advanced robots in the world which are available in the markets:
NINE MOST ADVANCED ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ROBOTS IN THE WORLD BASED ON COMMERCIALIZATION
