AI robots that coexist with humans...Replace humans in homes, factories, and battlefields

AI robots provide robots with artificial intelligence and the ability to make real-time decisions by confirming that the elderly are taking medications at a set time and exercising together to
reduce casualties on behalf of military robots and human warriors in dangerous missions
The era of artificial intelligence chatbots has opened wide in Korea. On the 10th, the domestic media introduced an artificial intelligence robot that helps the elderly. The human care robot developed by the Intelligent Robotics Research Division of the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) is the main character.

The Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) said, "We have developed a robot artificial intelligence technology that understands the elderly, responds emotionally, and provides personalized services tailored to the situation."

According to ETRI, the development of human care service robots requires data to recognize people from the robot's point of view and artificial intelligence technology necessary for deep learning.

To this end, ETRI developed an artificial intelligence robot using 13 technologies specialized for the elderly, such as the technology to recognize the daily behavior of the elderly and the recognition technology for the appearance characteristics of the elderly.

These AI robots were able to communicate in a variety of ways, such as checking whether they took medicine at a set time, correcting their posture while exercising together, and notifying them of where and where objects such as remote controls were placed.

According to the research team, from September this year, in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do, in order to secure data, AI robots were placed in two homes where grandmothers actually live, and the technology was verified while living together for two months.

Kim Jae-hong, head of ETRI's Human-Robot Interaction Lab, said, "We have secured technological prowess by repeating the process of deriving unexpected problems through large-scale long-term demonstrations and improving them."

Dr. Stephen Hawking emphasized that "artificial intelligence robots are likely to evolve faster than humans, and we should prepare for a robot revolt."

However, as the words of a genius scholar are overshadowed, artificial intelligence robots are almost invading human life, playing a role more than a friend or companion animal.

AI provides decision-making power to robots

On the 10th, IT expert Drew Robb posted an article titled "How artificial intelligence is being used in robotics?" in the American computer magazine Datamation.

Rather than specializing in a single mobile robot, Drew explains, AI is pushing robots into a variety of fields: robots that can do many things, robots that can manage inventory levels as well as order deliveries.

Therefore, current artificial intelligence gives robots the ability to make decisions in real time. For example, an industrial inventory robot could explore its location as well as the site's surroundings, including the location of all inventory, stock levels, the order to retrieve an order, and the location of other robots on the floor.

Drew argues that if someone is nearby, they should avoid it, or change the route so that it can be delivered.

In addition, mobile robots must interoperate with various shop floor systems, computer number control (CNC) equipment, and other industrial systems. AI can process various inputs and coordinate tasks in real time, allowing mobile robots to work seamlessly with all different systems.

According to Rob Enderle, analyst at Endele Group, the unmanned robotics market is worth about $103 billion this year and is expected to more than double to $210 billion by 2025.

Andelé said that while robotic process automation (RPA) is developing into another hot area, robots are being integrated with AI to handle high-volume, repeatable tasks.

Chairman Son Jeong-eui, AI robots are a competitive advantage in Japan

On September 15, India's Deccan Herald reported that, citing a Reuters article, SoftBank CEO Son Jeong-eui said, "Smart robots can revive Japan's growth and competitiveness."

“Since one smart robot can do 10 times the daily output, such machines will have the potential to innovate the workforce,” Son said. “Humans can be freed from boring work.”

Earlier than President Sohn expected, Japan is already becoming a paradise for artificial intelligence robots. Semi, which appeared at Tokyo Station in Japan in 2019, was a very refreshing shock. Semi, wearing an engineer's hat, is an AI robot developed in Germany that speaks seven languages, including German, Japanese, and Korean.

The cuter Pepper next to Semi is an AI robot developed by Aldebaran Robotics, a French humanoid developer acquired by Softbank in 2013. This robot also got a great response as it served as a guide at the subway station. In Japan, numerous AI robots are being used in government offices, restaurants, cafes, and department stores.

The Asahi Shimbun reported that in 2014, the AI ​​robot 'Dorobokun' applied to the prestigious Tokyo University in Japan.

The Asahi Shimbun reported that the artificial intelligence robot 'Dorobo-Kun' did not meet the passing mark of the University of Tokyo in the nationwide university entrance exam mock test, but received a score that allowed it to pass into 472 universities, 80% of the 581 private universities in Japan.

This AI robot is being developed as an artificial intelligence development project by the National Institute of Information Science and Technology in Japan in 2011, and it was reported that it was developed with the goal of passing the University of Tokyo in 2021.

The panda robot is of great interest in Dubai

China is also a country that dreams of becoming an artificial intelligence powerhouse in the future. So far, they have made huge investments in the field of AI, and in particular, are paying great attention to humanoid robots using AI.

On November 1, 2019, Roboticsbiz introduced the 10 most popular robot startups in China through an editorial. Robotics Biz is a technology portal that brings together robotics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning technology experts from around the world.

First of all, AI Nemo, created by Chinese AI startup Nemo, is one of the world's first home companion robots. According to Chinese tech site Li Yunwang, the AI ​​Nemo can also video chat, but it can also read text messages aloud, roam the room while kids play, or send emergency alerts. Users outside the home can control the device through the mobile app and receive notifications from the app.

Shenzhen-based UBTECH Robotics is one of the world's leading robotics startups. UBTECH is a company specialized in making humanoid robots using AI technology.

According to PRNews, at the '2020 Dubai Expo' held on October 1, last year, UBTECH Robotics attracted great attention by introducing Panda Robot and Walker X, a large humanoid service robot, in the China Pavilion.

Created exclusively for this event with the image of China's iconic national animal, the panda robot is based on humanoid service robot technology. The friendly panda robot served as an ambassador of peace and friendship for the China Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, taking photos and videos, and interacting with guests.

The 41-jointed UBTECH panda robot can perform Tai Chi, as well as other Chinese traditional arts as well as Chinese calligraphy. The robot served as an entry point across China providing information on smart cities, agricultural technologies and environmentally friendly practices, the news reported.

Also serving as a popular intelligence guide in the Exploration and Discovery Pavilion, the Walker X robot is said to have skillfully introduced guests to China's technological achievements in space exploration, including the China Space Station, the Chang'e-5 mission and the Vader satellite network.

At this exhibition, Dominican Republic Director Carolina Peguero and other attendees commented, “China has made great achievements in space exploration,” and said, “We look forward to China actively sharing its experiences with other countries.” added.

Perfect for dirty and dangerous missions

Military robots are a technological field at the peak of artificial intelligence. In particular, the unmanned combat system to be developed in the near future is being upgraded to a technology that can actually see and judge the battlefield situation and make optimal decisions with artificial intelligence technology installed.

On January 19 of this year, Professor Heba Sopar of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Alexandria in Egypt wrote a column about military robots in Online sciences.

According to Sofar, artificial intelligence has become an important part of modern warfare, and its unique computing and decision-making capabilities have improved the self-control, autonomous execution of combat systems.

Armies around the world are deploying artificial intelligence in weapons and other defense systems used on air, land, naval and space platforms, while military robots are being used to identify and track targets using computer vision.

Such unmanned weapon systems increase strength and effectiveness, take the place of human warriors in dangerous missions, reduce casualties, reduce the number of warriors required for a given mission, and allow fighters to reach previously inaccessible areas. Le explained.

In particular, military robots are better suited for dull, dirty or dangerous missions than humans, exposing themselves instead of humans to potentially harmful radioactive materials. Among its dangerous missions is handling explosives, and lethal autonomous robots have the advantage of being able to operate at higher speeds than humans, even when communications are lost.

Self-driving vehicles increase productivity and safety for human operators, can patrol secure areas, and focus cameras on disruptive areas to investigate signs of intruders.

AI-powered target recognition systems probabilistically predict adversary behavior, aggregation of weather and environmental conditions, predict and flag potential supply line bottlenecks or vulnerabilities, evaluate mission approaches, and proposed mitigation strategies.

Machine learning is used to learn, track, and discover targets from acquired data, and uses images to automatically locate and identify targets.

Integrating artificial intelligence with robotic surgical systems (RSS) and robotic ground platforms (RGPs) can provide remote surgical support on the battlefield. In challenging situations, AI-equipped systems extract a soldier's medical records and support complex diagnostics, electronic medical record analyzers (EMRAs).

The Human In The Loop weapon is a robot that selects a target and transmits force under the supervision of a human operator. The robot uses low-light cameras and pattern recognition software to detect intruders and issue verbal warnings.

If the intruder does not surrender, the machine gun-wielding robot fires itself when in fully automatic mode to the alert intruder.

AI can be applied to robot fighter pilots, which can discover unpredictable enemies that human pilots cannot.
