Robotics The Future is Here

What comes to your mind when you come across the word ‘ROBOT’? If you think they are only the thing of space movies and science fiction novels, then think again. Robots are the best growing technological device in the world. Ranging from space exploration to entertainment , a robot’s performance is commendable.

The robot industry is growing very fast, providing us with various new technologies that can assist with household work,medical work,industrial work, space exploration and many other tasks. Robotic technology has brought a lot of changes around us and is continuing to impact the way we are living in this world. Robotics technology has transformed a lot since the past to the present scenario. It surrounds almost everyone in today’s world and affects both work and leisure activities.

Robotics was a sub-branch of mechanical, electrical and computer science engineering. But now with increasing demand for artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation. Robotics and automation has introduced itself as a branch of engineering.
Robotics deals with the design,construction, operation and application of robots and computer systems and their control and processing.

Robotic technology is becoming one of the fastest growing technologies in the world. Some of the leading robotics companies are ABB, Fanuc, KUKA, Yaskawa.Robots are versatile, they can perform many functions.They are multifunctional in today’s society.

Some of the projects that became famous all over the globe are the curiosity rover,sophia the human robo, DJI Mavic and Phantom,Robonaut-R2 and R5.The use of robotic technology has made a deep influence on the world in several ways. As technological advances continue, research design and building new robots serve various practical purposes, whether domestic, commercial, military or space.

Incredibly human race have made robots that can replace humans from working in hazardous conditions like defusing bombs, mining and exploring shipwrecks.Robots are very beneficial to human race. They are efficient, take less time to complete a task,save a lot of money and provide accurate and precise work.There are various industry segments which are making use of robotics to improve their production capabilities.

The craze of robots has spread so much that so many movies and series are also based on its theme. Some popular movies include Star Wars, Robocop, Ra one, Transformers etc.
The increasing popularity of robotics has resulted in the formation of the Robotics Society of India (RSI). It is an academie society founded on 10th July, 2011, which aims at promoting Indian robotics and automation activities.

We all know every coin has two sides, robotics too has a flip side to it. The largest barrier in the development of robots has been the expensive hardware such as sensors, motors etc. Nowadays micro and nano technologies are also used that are exorbitant. Customizing and updating such complex technologies is also an added problem.

With each passing day new advancements in technologies are taking place, a new product launch could possibly be a problem for the people already in the game. Robots cut down labor charges, thus reducing an enormous amount of opportunities of employment for many workers. In several developed countries, scientists are making robotic military forces that can prove dangerous to others in future. As the power and potential of computers will keep expanding, revolution will be created in the field of robotics technology. Imagination is coupled with technology. It would not be wrong to say that in the near future there will be a time when robots will become smarter than the human race and robots might rule over the human race.

ARE KINDLES BETTER THAN PAPERBACKS?

Hi! Hope you all are doing good. I’m a kindle parent for more than a month. So I thought why not share about kindle. I simply love the device so much and I can’t stay away from it as much as I even named my device.

Artificial Intelligence- future of the country

Artificial intelligence: I think therefore I am?

It is a well-known fact that Artificial Intelligence is developing at a rapid rate. Artificial Intelligence would take over 90 percent of the jobs in the future. It is no lie that we see Artificial Intelligence applications frequently in our everyday life- net banking, speed cameras, face recognition, etc. Soon, knowing artificial intelligence would become a must to get selected in a job. In a developing country like India, technology becomes a necessity. Therefore, it is the right time to learn and explore it. This article would guide you to become an amateur even though you are tech-savvy or not.
1) So the first step should be to contact your teacher if you are in school and inquire about the artificial intelligence courses. Even if you are in college, you would be able to join a ai course
2) However, if your school and colleges are not offering any courses, try searching online. You can find free interactive courses on Udemy and Guvi.
3) Once you are through the basics- machine learning, deep learning, and neural network, you can go for advanced paid courses.
4) If you feel like you have accomplished well, you can go for internships on Internshala and let’s intern.
This self-learning would not require more than two months if you put in your full efforts. In case you are still not sure that why you should invest your time. Perhaps this might help you.
1) Studying AI soon can provide you with a career as a software engineer studying neural networks, human-machine interfaces, and quantum artificial intelligence.
2) Cramming artificial intelligence presents a life of opportunities. At a fundamental level, you will adequately explain the systems and tools that you associate with daily. And if you adhere to the subject and study more, you can help create cutting-edge AI applications, like the Google Self Driving Cars. In the field of artificial intelligence, the possibilities are truly endless.
3) The use of Artificial Intelligence is capable of creating, transforming, and improving many facets of human life. For example, farming in the United States has been made easier with Farmlogs, a software that provides farmers with information about the weather and soil as well as tracking plant growth to achieve better profits. Some countries are even implementing AI in improving environmental planning, disaster management, and crime prevention.
Here are ten people who made their career through Artificial Intelligence:-
1) Elon Musk
2) Anita Schjøll Brede
3) Jürgen Schmidhuber
4) Fei-Fei Li
5)Dorian Selz
6)Richard Socher
7)Demis Hassabis
8)Rita Cucchiara
9)Anders Hardebring
10)Robin Li

You can be one of them. It is considered that all AI regularities are complex. Yet, like several human-based rules and traditional software, some AI systems are manageable and straightforward to explain. AI explainability is developing as a rich area of study that gives insight into why a particular system works positively and helps in improving the clarity of decision-making. In a lockdown, many students have lost the track of their career, Artificial Intelligence can help you to get on track. You are the future of the nation, so is AI.
