As machine automation technologies improve and become more intelligent, robots that can work alongside their human co-workers in the manufacturing or healthcare industries are starting to emerge. In the past, robots have mainly been used to perform tasks such as welding, cutting, packaging and other manual tasks. However, with the advent of artificial intelligence into the field of robotics, robots will soon be able to perform an unlimited number of diverse tasks, which will give them much more versatility and allow them to do much more than the traditional machines. One of the most exciting aspects of this future is the idea of autonomy. With artificial intelligence controlling the limbs of the robot, as well as a variety of other sensors, humans won’t have to be involved in any way to ensure the robot’s continued success.
In order to understand how this future could possibly happen, it is necessary to take a step back and look at how the way we use computers now. Today’s computers can perform a wide variety of functions, including speech recognition, image recognition, database management, operation control and even machine vision. Although each machine is separate and performs a specific task, the computer can communicate with the rest of the system through interfaces called interfaces. This allows for an incredible amount of data to be stored and manipulated without the need for physical access.
The idea behind an artificially intelligent system like this is not far from reality. Rather than having humans control the actual machine, they would instead have machines controlling and performing a wide range of human activities. As more tasks are performed by these robotic systems over time, the idea of autonomy comes into play. If a machine could do all the work, wouldn’t the end result is much more superior? After all, aren’t humans more important than machines? With the help of future technology, we may see a future where machines don’t have to do everything, but only things they’re told to do.
