Robotics and AI Are They Same?

It may be obvious, but robotics & artificial intelligence are two very different disciplines.

While you can have robots with artificial intelligence, it’s equally possible for robotics to flourish without AI, & indeed most systems currently do.

Artificial intelligence is where systems emulate the human mind to learn, solve problems & make decisions on the fly.

Projects using AI in robotics are in the minority, but such designs are likely to become more common in future as our AI systems become more sophisticated.

Most recently iRobot, the company behind Roomba, announced that new models will use machine learning & AI to spot & avoid pet excrement.

The scope for robotic AI in manufacturing, also known as Industry 4.0, is potentially more transformational.

Iron Ox uses AI & robotics to try & ensure that each plant gets the optimal level of sunshine, water & nutrients required to ensure it grows to its full potential.
