How robotics (and AI) are changing how we work and live | TECH(talk)

Robotics and AI play increasingly important roles in a variety of industries and no, they’re not here to take over mankind. Keith Shaw, editor-in-chief of Robotics Business Review, joins Ken Mingis and Juliet Beauchamp to discuss the state of robotics in the enterprise. Currently, robots are good at highly specific tasks. But we’re not far away from drones, autonomous vehicles and surgical robots becoming critical parts of daily life.

Artificial Intelligence VS Machine Learning

Machine learning (ML) is the scientific study of algorithms and statistical models that computer systems use to perform a specific task without using explicit instructions, relying on patterns and inference instead. It is seen as a subset of artificial intelligence. Machine learning algorithms build a mathematical model based on sample data, known as “training data”, in order to make predictions or decisions without being explicitly programmed to perform the task.

Machine learning algorithms are used in a wide variety of applications, such as email filtering and computer vision, where it is difficult or infeasible to develop a conventional algorithm for effectively performing the task.
