are now the modern trend in technology based on their ability to carry out crucial jobs and amazing functionalities. The modern equipped with are expected to take over 80 percent of humans’ before the year 2050 according to WEF, however, based on the evidence shown so far, these are not far from actualizing the expectations from them.
Drawing a comparison between the and vending would give us a clear idea and the basic knowledge we need in regard to the two categories of .

England had been a historic place known for the use of vending . In 1615, coin-operated vending that were able to dispense tobacco and a newspaper dispensing for the dissemination of banned works in 1822, were all in use in England.
Modern vending were based on an improvement of existing technics which started in the 1880s dispensing postcards, envelopes, & notepaper, etc. and became a widespread feature at railway stations and post offices. With England being the dominant place the were being used. Germany and U.S. companies also adopted the use of the vending shortly after the England patronage within the 1880s. Alongside other countries like Canada, Australia, Austria, Italy, Czech, and Japan, etc. leading to the widespread use.
The operating principle is based on making a product available in the such that the releases it to the customer as it falls in an open compartment at the bottom, or into a cup, the product is either released first or after payment. Also, the product may be obtained by the unlocking of a door, drawer, or turning of a knob. These will be after the needed input had been made in the form of payment or insertion of cards, etc.
However, some products need to be prepared to become available, like coffee and generation of tickets. Snack , change vending and other of their category had been classified as vending .
Advancement has led to more improvement in the making of vending which brought about the modern special vending such as:
FULL-LINE VENDING ; it is a model known for the dispensing of several types of products including candy, cookies, food, and drinks, etc. they are usually installed in supermarkets and mini-shops.
PHOTO BOOTH ; it is a modern vending that contains an automated camera and film processor operating based on coin payment to take an instant photograph and print it out to the customer. The has lots of features meant to improve the photo quality such as those that would help reduce outside interference like light while taking a picture. It became popular and displaced the traditional method of photographing.
STAMP VENDING ; it’s an automatically controlled used for vending postage stamp to users in exchange for a pre-determined amount of money.

The use of Automatic Teller Machines (ATMs) by banks and financial institutions is a good example of how the Artificial intelligence machines are emerging and dominating existing machines and human jobs. It is believed that before the year 2050, smarter and highly programmed AI ATMs will be installed in banks and financial institutions for the cash deposits, documents collections, and releasing of cash to customers as well as documents, etc.
AND WHAT THEY CAN DO
The recent research records had shown many manufacturing firms focusing more attention to . The increased interest in that regard has made it become a topic of discussion. Yesterday a firm released the of their newly made with artificial human skin and other incredible features. If the predictions of most scientists are correct, then may become highly priced and be demanding than other if they can perform virtually 80% of what humans can do without error which includes taking over the vending .
