For the last couple of weeks I have been trying to write a blog about my interests in a topic of robotics. My topic is "how does robotics help artificial intelligence". This topic really interested me when I first read about it because I have always had a genuine interest in how we as humans can: make decisions, speech recognition,translate between languages and have a visual perception on things.
My first question was" Who thought of the idea that people could program a robot to be able to use artificial intelligence. Well my answer to this question is people have been thinking of this for a very long time now and it would be unfair to give this title to a Pacific person because many people through out the years have dedicated their lives and working careers towards developing a program that would help a robot in artificial intelligence. Programming a robot to do these things is really hard task because as you may or may not have experienced that creating a simple program such as making a robot go through an obstacle course can take forever depending on the challenges that the course may require. Then there is the other half to it as well the artificial intelligence part. People as we know now are still trying to understand and grab a concept on how our brain interacts and solves problems with other humans.
As I went on I wanted to learn more about why would people wanted to do this. I started to investigate with more and more resources. I soon learn that the people trying to create this amazing thing within a robot had in fact incouted people that may not have this. Some people in how world may lack communication in these areas for many reasons. So the people that are designing a program for the robot are simply trying to help people that are disadvantaged in these areas.
Have people been successful in this? Yes some people have indeed mastered some aspects of artificial intelligence within a robot. Some robots can pick up : eye contact,emotional change and where there focus point is. They are using these robots all around the world but manly in Europe. Schools have been using this robot to help teach different social skills and help them have a different resource when learning. Most schools have seen this as a mager success and do recommend using this robot with in a school environment.
Overall this is an amazing development for the robotics work place because it will slow but surely help change the world of those that are disadvantaged and help people to created new skills within this topic.
