What is the role of Artificial Intelligence in Robotics.


Robotics is field of application which covers most the aspects of artificial intelligence. In this field Artificial intelligence is integrated into final result. Nowadays is an era of humanoid robots which are capable of walking, running, and exhibit human behavior. Sophia an humanoid robot is one such example which we can say is true hominoid robot. All this is possible due to huge amount of money spent on research and development of these robots.

Previously robots had pre-programmed instructions due to which they had fixed behavior regardless of any changes in the environment. These robots had no autonomy or adaptation, to the changing environment. Thus they did not had intelligent behavior. Nowadays with advancements in technology, robots use AI as well as Machine Learning that, robots are capable of performing movements so precise and gentle, that they are able to do what human beings can do.

We have grown so advanced but still there are thing that robots cannot do. We have seen so many movies that show advanced robotic skills which push the limits of science and technology in robotic intelligent behavior. These robots help humans to make their life easier such as homes, hospitals, the work place, and all around us. Also they work in harsh conditions which can cause danger to human health.
As humans are dependent on robots and interact with them in various tasks, as technology is not so perfect yet, this interaction with robots  may cause issue which could lead to injury. At the moment, all machines are being treated as simple consumer products by the law like everyday household items so unless the person interacting with the AI or robot acts negligently or recklessly, the manufacturer/owner are held liable for any of the damages caused by them.
The basic contributions of AI in robotics are:
PERCEPTION – not only taking data from the environment, but transforming it into knowledge (and even wisdom) to be able to interpret and modify its behavior according to a result of this perception.

REASONING – drawing conclusions from data/knowledge taken from perception.

LEARNING – with new experiences, the robot needs to perceive and reason to obtain conclusions, but when the experiences are repeated, a learning process is required to store knowledge and speed up the process of intelligent response.

DECISION MAKING, or the ability to prioritize actions, is necessary to be able to be safe and effective in the solution of different autonomous applications.

HUMAN-ROBOT INTERACTION at many levels is also necessary. For example, natural language processing – understanding the meaning of sentences exchanged with humans, depending on the context and to be able to properly respond -, and emotions rapport.
We are going to analyze the first three areas a bit more in depth.
Any robot as an autonomous physical entity, has to perceive its environment, and interpret this perception, to move in a safe manner. Currently there are several types of sensors that can be used with robots.

Android Pie: Cool features you shouldn't overlook

In this era of technical growth companies have been trying to improve user experience by making device usability better and handy. As mobile phone are being introduced with various new technologies for eg. face recognition which uses AI to enhance the user experience, similarly many other inventions are being worked on at present and support those new features the OS needs to be upgraded to match their pace with the development of technology. Or it may also be said that with advancement in the OS versions the Mobile companies need to be design the phone to cop its level.
Android 9 controls the power of artificial intelligence to provide more from the smart phone. Now it's smarter, faster and adapts with usage.

The phone will now readily know about user's…

What is Deep Learning - Explained in General Terms

Deep Learning, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are the terms which are being used interchangeably these days. Suddenly every one is talking about them – irrespective of whether they understand the differences or not! Whether one have been actively following data science or not – everyone would have heard these terms. But no one has a clear understanding of what is Deep Learning. Basically it is subset of Machine Learning which in turn is subset of Artificial Intelligence.

Deep Learning is type of Machine Learning which teaches computers to perform actions by learning from examples. Deep Learning is the key technology being used in Driver-less cars that enables them to recognize a stop sign and differentiate between a person and lamppost.It is the key behind the voice controls in various devices like phone, tablets, TVs and hands-free speakers. Deep Learning is gradually prevailing and getting attention lately. Using it, impossible results have been achieved.

Chromecast: All you need to know

Digital media player, Chromecast is a small dongle developed by Google for accessing playbacks from mobile device or computers on high definition TVs. The device controls/initiate the playback of internet streamed audio and visual content on TVs through mobile or web Apps. The device supports Google cast for mirroring of content on HD TV's.

Google Cast SDK is a third party modification software which was released on 3rd Feb, 2014. Third party Apps can use google cast for enabling their apps to be accessible through Chromecast on high definition Tvs. After the release, 20,000 google cast ready apps were sold till May 2015. 30 million units of Chromecast are sold till now in US making it the best seller streaming device in US in 2014.

There are three Chromecast device launched till now:
1. Chromecast 1st Generation
2. Chromecast 2nd Generation
3. Chromecast 3rd Generation
