KEY TOPICS

Central to the debate over automation and the future of work is the fear that robots and artificial intelligence will take over so much of the work people currently do that there will be no jobs left for human beings. [1] A new report from the World Economic Forum suggests the way people and robots work alongside one another in the workplace will change dramatically in the near future. [2]

If your job falls into one of these categories, now is the time to start acquiring the skills you’ll need for your future job: managing the robots that will take over your dullest tasks. [3]

You might not have to worry about robots taking over your job in the next few years, but it’s not a bad idea to start building your skills with that future in mind. [4] The Campaign to Stop Killer Robots worries about this future, but not about robotic warriors turning on their masters. [5] Ask anyone: working with robots is the stuff of the future. [6]

Panel discussions will cover topics including: why robotics and artificial intelligence matter; the good, the bad and the ugly of artificial intelligence and robotics; how humans will interact with robots in the future; artificial intelligence and robots in the workplace; and future opportunities and threats posed by robotics and artificial intelligence. [7] The cobots and service robots of the future will be able to do complex tasks more accurately than humans can, agreed the experts. [8] In the future perhaps, humans and robots can learn and create together. [9] With all of the scare tactics surrounding the “rise of the robots”, it can be easy for people to feel helpless with knowing how they can adapt to secure their role within an automated future. [10]

Pew gauged public perception of automation technologies by presenting respondents with four scenarios, including the development of completely driverless cars ; a future in which machines replace many human jobs ; the possibility of fully autonomous robot carers ; and the possibility that a computer program could evaluate and select job candidates with no human oversight. [11] Four million jobs in the British private sector could be replaced by robots in the next decade, according to business leaders asked about the future of automation and artificial intelligence. [11] A Mixed Message: ? Half (48%) envision a future in which robots and digital agents will have displaced significant numbers of both blue- and white-collar workers–with many expressing concern that this will lead to vast increases in income inequality, masses of people who are effectively unemployable, and breakdowns in social order. ? The other half of (52%) expects that technology will not displace more jobs than it creates by 2025. [11] According to the findings, 72% of Americans are very or somewhat worried about a future where robots and computers are capable of performing many human jobs – more than double the 33% of people who were enthusiastic about the prospect. [11] Most of the discussion about the future of work focuses on how many jobs robots will take from humans. [12] The scenarios included: the development of autonomous vehicles that can operate without the aid of a human driver; a future in which robots and computers can perform many of the jobs currently done by human workers; the possibility of fully autonomous robot caregivers for older adults; and the possibility that a computer program could evaluate and select job candidates with no human involvement. [11] Most prominently, Americans are roughly twice as likely to express worry (72%) than enthusiasm (33%) about a future in which robots and computers are capable of doing many jobs that are currently done by humans. [11] Let’s dig in deeper and discover what the future holds for humans whose job security may be threatened by robots. [11] Unsurprisingly, they found that at least in the near future, those jobs that are relatively simplistic are those most likely to be supplanted by a machine or robot. [11] Some paint a picture of a dystopian future where robots have taken over the world turning humans into a sluggish, overweight race. [13] Automated warehouses manned at least partially by robots are likely to become mainstream in the future, as warehouse tenants look for ways to overcome a growing labor shortage. [14]

POSSIBLY USEFUL

A new WEF report, The Future of Jobs 2018, says that 75 million jobs will be displaced by artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and automation, but suggests that 133 million new jobs may be created as organisations shift the balance between human workers and machines: a net gain of 58 million. [15] If the WEF is correct – and we agree with their overall analysis – the employee of the future would appear to be a flexible, creative, emotionally intelligent contract worker who understands AI, robotics, and automation, and has deep analytical and experience design skills. [15]

“The most relevant question to businesses, governments and individuals is not to what extent automation will affect current employment numbers, but how and under what conditions the global labour market can be supported in reaching a new equilibrium in the division of labour between human workers, robots, and algorithms. [15] A further step was the automation of several parts of a manufacturing process leading to a change in the manufacturing process itself: the robot was no longer replacing a single task but was pursuing a relatively complex goal. [16] The loss of jobs has already hit many manufacturing plant and many feel that further loss will be negligible, actually there will be some job creation leveraging on the increasing productivity brought forward by robots (and more than that for developed economy the insourcing of manufacturing that was previously outsourced to low labor cost areas -with robots the labour cost is the same in China and in the US). [16] In case of white collar jobs the problem of job losses is not the robotization of activities but their disappearance as result of the digital transformation (take the example of travel agencies: they haven?t disappeared because of robots but because people no longer need them?). [16] What robots can do is allow our high cognitive capacities to deal with intricate exciting tasks, to engage in jobs that require flexible thought. [17] Risk boils down to the consistency of a robot, programmed to execute a task the same way each instance, versus spending time and money to train workers to execute food safety behaviors they may not feel like doing because they?re having a bad day. [18] Humans will have to learn to collaborate with robots like they collaborate with other people. [16] Humanoid robots are getting better at walking, talking and looking like humans. [19] Robots have become much more flexible, can learn, can operate in cluster more recently in team (robots and humans) and very recently can “teach”. [16] He is an acknowledged robotics expert who has appeared on BBC TV and radio, ITN, and Talk Radio, and is probably the only tech journalist in the UK to own a number of humanoid robots, which he hires out to events, exhibitions, universities, and schools. [15] Robots are also becoming a symbiotic presence (think of robots used at Ford as exoskeleton that have been so useful to blue collar workers that once Ford has decided to terminate the experiment workers have protested and won the continuation of the symbiotic work). [16] Robots do not necessarily spell gloom and doom for the average foodservice worker, nor are they the magic bullet to achieve zero risk of foodborne illness transmission. [18]

Why is that a problem? Because we?ve reached the point where it?s clear that robots are going to affect every aspect of our lives. [20] It depends on the way you define the word ROBOT or which kind of robots do you mean. [17] If you mean automatic devices under programme control,then the answer is YES and more than YES: Robots have already changed our society in a way as you said, significantly. [17] We have moved from robots that welded parts of the chassis to a different way of building/assembling a car. [16] This requires a level of smartness way above the one needed to a robot sitting still in an assembly line where all activity is well planned and programmed. [16] Do you like robots? Of course you do! You?re reading IEEE Spectrum, so you almost certainly love robots. [20] We like them too! But here?s the problem: Those are not real robots. [20] We need to make real robots just as inspiring as their fictional counterparts, and here at Spectrum, we have a plan to do just that. [20] The robot monitors shelves and tallies out-of-stock items and those that need replenishment. [21] The first (manufacturing) robots were smart tools that basically could self-operate. [16] They can collaborate spontaneously with other robots because they are aware of what the other robots can do (not because they have been programmed as cogs in a machine). [16] If our robot guide happens to look familiar, that?s because it?s an expansion of Spectrum? s popular Robots for iPad app. If you know the app, thank you for being a user–an update is coming soon for iOS and Android. [20] As robots keep getting smarter they will find application in more areas. [16] Autonomous robots are starting to have memory of what happen, they can learn from experience and can imagine what might happen next if they do or don?t do something. [16]

Industrial robots have taken place of human workers to do many drudgery works including assembling, welding and painting. [17]

Two investment decisions will be crucial to shaping the future of jobs, says the WEF: whether to prioritise the automation or augmentation of roles, and whether or not to invest in workforce re-skilling. [15] While many people believe that routine, low-skilled jobs will fall to the machines first, the WEF paints a bleak future for many roles that were once considered safe, middle-class careers. [15]

What will our future look like as we come to share the earth with intelligent machines? Our minds gravitate to extremes, to the sharply contrasting visions that have captured public attention and divided much of the technological community. [19]

One of the trends that we believe will be robust in the near future is camera technology that helps create “instrumented” environments in stores. [21] Previously, up to December 2011, he was the Director of the Telecom Italia Future Centre in Venice, looking at the interplay of technology evolution, economics and society. [16] We want more kids to dream of becoming roboticists and technologists, or at least be sufficiently familiar with the details of the technology to make informed, thoughtful, and ethical decisions in the future. [20] We believe that the robot?s value in instrumented retail environments will be profitable in the future when such trends will transform the retail experience. [21] He is a senior member of IEEE where he leads the Industry Advisory Board within the Future Directions Committee. [16] The feedback you provide will help us show you more relevant content in the future. [17]

Some believe we may be looking at a not-too-distant future of mass structural unemployment due to automation, while the more optimistic crowd contends that the current wave of automation will ultimately create more jobs than it destroys, just as the steam engine, the automobile, and the computer did in past periods of technological change. [1] While we?ve yet to create self-aware robots like those that pepper popular movies like 2001: A Space Odyssey and Star Wars, we have made smart and often significant use of AI technology in a wide range of applications that, while not as mind-blowing as androids, still change our day-to-day lives. [22] Automation technology supplier Acieta states that “a robot can change to different product or pack formats in just seconds?. [23]

These advances have their dark side: as robots become more sophisticated, they’ll be able to take over jobs currently performed by humans — including finance jobs. [3] “Instead of worrying about robots destroying jobs,” Ip wrote, “business leaders need to figure out how to use them more, especially in low-productivity sectors.” [1] Dynamic Group CEO Joe McGillivray, commented on the use of robotics, saying: “Universal Robots? UR10 robot arm, gave us a perfectly consistent cycle; we went from having three operators on a single shift to being able to run three shifts per day with just one operator per shift. [23] An even less invasive robotic innovation that has changed the healthcare industry is from iRobot, a remote presence robot that allows outpatient specialists to interact with their patients. [24] Robots that are increasing productivity in the manufacturing industry are also becoming intelligent, sometimes working and learning alongside people to increase the number of manufacturing tasks that they can complete. [24] Greg Ip made a similar point in the Wall Street Journal last month, also pointing to the slowdown in productivity and arguing that, if anything, robots aren’t taking over enough of our jobs. [1] Another indicator that the robots are gaining on us would be an exceptionally high rate of “occupational churn,” the rate at which the job structure is changing as some occupations decline and others grow. [1] Robotic skins are planar substrates with embedded actuation and sensing that can wrap around soft objects to turn them into robots. [25] Stanley Innovation has an advanced custom robot that is placed on a Segway robotic mobility platform (RMP), allowing it to maneuver over hazardous terrain. [24] The system works by continuously collecting and analysing data to help manufacturers track the health and maintenance performance of their robots during production, helping to avoid any unexpected downtime. [23] In the U.S., companies are using robots to automate production to help them compete better in overseas markets. [23] Australia’s Drake Trailers has reported that it introduced a single welding robot into its production line and saw a 60% increase in productivity. [24] More so, robots offer manufacturers a way to efficiently produce multiple products on the same line with little downtime. [23] Robots are also revolutionizing the way these two industries conduct surveillance. iRobot is developing a robot concept that will allow a 5-pound machine outfitted with cameras and sensors to be dropped into burning buildings or hostage situations for risk assessment. [24] Robots have evolved to the point where they are now more efficient than unskilled labor in the manufacturing industry. [24] Robots such as these were used in car manufacturing and on assembly lines for similar products. [24] Within the global manufacturing market, the U.S. is fourth largest supplier of robots. [23] Back then, robots were automatic, doing repetitive and menial tasks that people found boring or dangerous. [24] Given this definition of emotion, Hans Moravec believes that “robots in general will be quite emotional about being nice people”. 66 Fear is a source of urgency. [26] The fear that robots will put millions out of work has it all wrong. [27] Manufacturers can use this information to optimise their overall maintenance costs and schedule their robots accordingly. [23] They discussed the possibility and the extent to which computers and robots might be able to acquire any level of autonomy, and to what degree they could use such abilities to possibly pose any threat or hazard. [26] In 2009, academics and technical experts attended a conference to discuss the potential impact of robots and computers and the impact of the hypothetical possibility that they could become self-sufficient and able to make their own decisions. [26] Like a miniature, foldable blimp, the robot will fit through holes just 1.5 inches across. [27] More so, the system analyses robot data to identify required maintenance tasks based on the usage of specific robots. [23] When a person thinks about robots revolutionizing an industry, the most common thought is that of the military or public safety industry. [24] The public safety industry has also benefited from these types of robots. [24] The humanoid robot won’t miss, but you don’t get a lot of help on defense. [27] Robot reply : 58 To truly understand, some believe the Chinese Room needs eyes and hands. [26] Robots can be programmed to produce identical products to precise specifications without mistakes. [23] Interestingly some companies in the U.S. are using robots to manufacture products at home, rather than overseas, helping to retain local employment. [23] Our return on investment was less than two months, and we can even go further because we?re able to adapt the robots to other products so quickly,” says the CEO. [23] Another company who has benefitted from working with Universal Robots is contract manufacturer organisation Dynamic Group. [23] Knife-wielding sex robots could be a very real possibility if security is not treated as a top priority by manufacturers. [27] This robot allows doctors to administer a more personalized experience, even from a substantial distance. [24] A world without work is probably not in the cards for humanity writ large, but with further technological change to come–from blockchain?s potential to completely upend global finance, to increasingly cheap manufacturing equipment changing the nature of industrialization in developing countries–a jobless future is a very real scenario for millions of workers in the industries affected by these massive and sudden changes. [1] While major changes may still be a few decades in the future, the reality is that artificial intelligence has the potential to radically change just about everything we take for granted about education. [22] The difference in the speed of change is what makes this threat of a jobless future so real, even if productivity growth remains incremental. [1]

To provide a comprehensive review of robot-assisted surgery in urolithiasis and to consider the future prospects of robotic approaches in stone surgery. [28] That shouldn?t rule out the possibility of AI tutors being able to do these things in the future. [22] Here are just a few of the ways those tools, and those that will follow them, will shape and define the educational experience of the future. [22] There will be productivity gains as technologies are no longer underused, but there will be a jobless future for some industries and for those who cannot adapt. [1] They expect that some routine-based human-held positions will become non-essential in the future, like data entry or payroll clerks. [2] Artificial intelligence is no longer an artifact of the misty future; it?s happening today. [3] The factory of the future is a term that has been discussed for a number of years but what exactly does it mean? Reece Armstrong explains. [23]

The modern manufacturing industry first started using industrial robots as early as 1961. [24] The second phase has started to create industrial robots that don’t just perform simple tasks; they absorb data and respond to new information so that they actively improve. [24] Industrial robots offer manufacturers the consistency needed to reproduce devices time and time again. [23] With a market value estimated to reach $40 billion by 2020, industrial robots are being used to ensure consistent quality production and to meet market demands. [23]

The idea of AI revolutionizing the workplace and the possibility of “robots taking job” has been talked about for some time, but people are not afraid of AI taking their jobs and want to be able to take advantage of the latest innovations at work. [29] That’s got a lot of people worried that robots are getting ready to take over their jobs. [4] Even with these advances, however, robots are still mostly used to do repetitive or dangerous jobs that most people don’t want to do. [4] Human interactions and communications are still an important component of many jobs, and robots simply can’t fill that role. [4] Robots are also helpful for doing jobs that waste human resources and create inefficiencies. [4] Programming and technology skills will also be helpful in the event that robots begin to take over new jobs. [4] In these industries, the use of robots and artificial intelligence is expected to add more jobs than these sectors eliminate. [4] Will robots eventually take over most jobs? Is your job really in jeopardy? Let’s take a look. [4] Instead of worrying about whether or not robots will take your job, prepare yourself to adapt. [4] Collaborative robots (cobots) are already well on their way to our workplaces, and this sector is now growing the fastest within the robotics industry. [6] A robot like Codey Rocky exposes kids to cutting-edge technologies for the very first time in an easy and enjoyable way. [30] Robots are helping to ease this shortfall of younger workers by taking on tasks like disinfecting equipment, dispensing medications, checking patients’ vital signs, and even assisting in surgery. [4] In the healthcare industry, robots are being tested to help fill demand for healthcare workers. [4] Obtain the real time data exchange from the robot sensors for training AI. [4] As they play with their robots (and learn science, technology, engineering, and math concepts along the way), kids also practice creative thinking. [30] If you are unhappy taking orders from your human boss, you might be more inclined to take orders from robots, according to a new survey. [29] The use of fully autonomous weapons would create an accountability gap as there is no clarity on who would be legally responsible for a robot’s actions: the commander, programmer, manufacture, or robot itself? Without accountability, these parties would have less incentive to ensure robots did not endanger civilians and victims would be left unsatisfied that someone was punished for the harm they experienced. [5] Almost no one, for example, objects to the use of robots to deal with bomb threats, rather than having a person risk their life to attempt to disarm a bomb. [4] In manufacturing, robots are taking over repetitive or dangerous tasks involved in the manufacturing process. [4] Robots can support those tasks by performing other duties, but they cannot replace this need. [4] Robots can now perform many more tasks than ever before, and they’ve quickly become “smarter”. [4]

The President of Kay Manufacturing, Brian Pelke, is working to spread a positive message around robot colleagues, stating that “the cobots didn?t replace any employees, we were able to meet increased production demand with our existing workforce?. [6] On Monday (September 10) Universal Robots sold its 25,000th (gold-plated) cobot to Kay Manufacturing and cemented its 60% market share, so robot colleagues are by no means resigned to fiction any longer. [6]

At work, 93 percent of employees said they would trust orders from a robot. [29] Incidents like these are few and far between (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration identified just 27 fatalities associated with robots from 1984 to 2013 ) but the grisly nature of robot accidents and the horror associated with unknown bugs or unaccountable behavior from robots, does nothing to mitigate the public perception of cobots. [6] About 5,000 nursing robots are currently being tested in Japan, where the aging population has put a strain on the country’s healthcare system. [4] With robots becoming more and more competent and intelligent, there are more applications for them than ever in a variety of industries. [4] We create robots to fight our wars for us, but they turn on their masters and bring ruin to our world. [5] They will also find it a very rewarding experience to think outside the box while creating their new robot. [30]

Is the future a technological murder mansion, a place where every dark corner hides a robotic horror waiting to kill all humans or, at the very least, take all our jobs? Maybe, but probably not. [5] About 23% of people in one survey believed their jobs would be eliminated in the future and replaced by automation. [4] With this potential, come questions about the impact of AI technologies on work and working life, and renewed public and policy debates about automation and the future of work. [31] “Artificial Intelligence is a double-edged sword: without proper human capital investment, it can have negative impacts on our future society,” the report stated. [32] The future of work might be on its way faster than many expect, but for those that have already made the leap, cobots are nothing more than a fantastic productivity tool, and will simply help humans achieve more with the resources we have. [6]

As modern life shifts over to the digital world, coding becomes a basic life skill for future jobs and other life opportunities. [30] We must always be aware of how our use of technology will affect us in the future, on both an economic and humanitarian level. [4] Many of our greatest fears stem from uncertainty about the future, and technology has made the future very uncertain indeed. [5]

AI is considered to be an important technological development affecting everyone?s future. [30] During the conversation, Musk shared his fears over the future of AI. [5]

Americans are scared, but hardly alone; people are primed by evolution to worry over their inability to control their future environment. [5] Biomedical technologies promise a future where we are all better, stronger, faster and at the fraction of the cost of one Steve Austin. [5]

Cobots, as opposed to purely industrial robots that we have gotten used to over the last decade or so, are more sophisticated than their precursors, with extra built-in safety features and sensors so that they can successfully work alongside humans. [6]

The continual advances in robotic automation technology, coupled with a continued fall in the cost of robotic equipment, mean there is likely to be a continued increase in take-up of robots in production and packaging processes. [33] The take-up of automation technology is continuing to rise within the food and beverage industry as manufacturers turn to robots to help them achieve new breakthroughs in competitiveness and productivity through safe, hygienic and speedy automation. [33] Based on a survey of UK food and beverage producers, the report found that 73% of those surveyed were using some form of manufacturing process automation, with another 40% saying that their productivity had improved due to investing in new machinery and equipment, including robots. [33] Barclays Bank?s 2015 report “Future-proofing UK manufacturing? highlighted the important contribution that automation, including robots, could make to the food and beverage sector, with productivity improvements of up to 25% estimated by 2025. [33]

As factory workers in the first industrial revolution feared that machines would replace them, modern office workers are facing a similar dilemma with the arrival of robots and automation. [10] Despite a slow rate of innovation, robot precision has come a long way since the early days of industrial automation. [8]

One of the most amazing aspects and a source of major fear with regards to advanced AI is the matter of robots taking over jobs beyond the labor sector. [34] Today, robots are accurate enough to perform wire welding along a seam, a job in which position, speed, acceleration, and deceleration all matter. [8] Within the next decade alone, it?s expected that robots will replace about half of all human workers in a variety of industries, and this goes doubly true for manufacturing. [34] From materials handling and machine tending to working alongside humans in pick-and-place operations, robot precision is transforming the manufacturing, medical, and logistics sectors, among others. [8] “The thing is, the robot is programmed by human guiding, so it needs to perform a task as it’s been shown to do it,” he said. [8] The study found that the robots were 10 times more precise than a human surgeon. [8] “It’s a bit poetic to think that we’re lending some of our human emotions to a robot, to create a new form of artistic expression. [9] This approach lets robots better understand and manipulate items, and, most importantly, allows them to even pick up a specific object among a clutter of similar objects — a valuable skill for the kinds of machines that companies like Amazon and Walmart use in their warehouses. [35] Figures like Elon Musk, and the recently passed Stephen Hawking, are keen on sounding alarm bells about AI and robots. [9] As an important component in the success of robotics, robot precision and accuracy were honed relatively early in hardware and software development. [8] We asked three industry professionals about how robot precision has improved over the years, and what it needs to continue growing. [8] To improve accuracy, robot manufacturers and operators also need to consider external factors that may have an effect. [8] Developments in technology such as remote service mean that manufacturers with a remote service agreement from their robot manufacturer can have their robot monitored remotely to spot any potential problems in advance. [33] Developments in vision inspection technology, for example, are enabling robots to quickly spot defective products that do not conform to a given specification. [33] Massachusetts Institute of Technology, CSAIL. “Robot can pick up any object after inspecting it.” [35] From welding to robot-assisted surgery, robot precision is a critical enabling technology. [8] As technology progresses, robots are becoming even more precise — and more commonplace. [8] Robots can work around the clock and can cope with the harshest of conditions to aid workers who would otherwise be unable to reach those all-important deadlines. [33] “In factories robots often need complex part feeders to work reliably,” says Manuelli. [35] “In fact, such modern robots only need to be repeatable place the part at the same time, each and every time.” [8] The robot can perform these checks on a regular basis — often many times throughout completing a task — compensating for any errors and resulting in an overall more accurate system. [8] The average positioning error of a robot determines its accuracy and the kinds of tasks it can perform. [8]

Although robot precision might not be as big of a deal for cobots as for other automation, Banger-Barrette said that cobots now have more sensors to make sure that they are accurately perceiving their environment, making them more precise. [8] The DON system, however, essentially creates a series of coordinates on a given object, which serve as a kind of “visual roadmap” of the objects, to give the robot a better understanding of what it needs to grasp, and where. [35] A laser cutting robot, for example, might need to slow down to cut around a corner, but going slowly allows more heat to build up. [8] “In my opinion, accuracy is a concept that totally doesn’t need to exist in collaborative robots,” Banger-Barrette said. [8] Today’s robots of today can perform much more detailed work than their predecessors. [8] If the robot encoder are off by a centimeter it doesn’t change a thing for the user.” [8] Certainly there’s been some progress: for decades robots in controlled environments like assembly lines have been able to pick up the same object over and over again. [35] Technically, no robot or manufacturing process is 100% accurate, he said. [8] For robots, this means having a sense of what?s “normal? and using machine learning techniques to detect statistical anomalies.” [36] Sep. 29, 2015 – Mobile service robots developed by computer scientists could soon be helping elderly people stay independent and active for longer. [35] The robot can either miss the faulty products or halt the line until these products are removed. [33] If a robot is used with a batch control system, it may also have a barcode scanner that can recognise a faulty set of products. [33] Because robots are less likely to make mistakes or break things, companies can realise reduced costs through decreased wastage and reprocessing of products. [33] Although robots are unable to directly help suppliers get payment from bigger companies dictating payment schedules, they can help to reduce operational overheads by eliminating the costs associated with drafting in extra staff and other resources to handle orders. [33] A concrete foundation can help reduce vibration and keep robot arms steady. [8] Manuelli uses the DON system and Kuka robot to grasp a cup. [35] Someone might use DON to get a robot to grab onto a specific spot on an object — say, the tongue of a shoe. [35]

With today?s robots offering high Mean Time between Failure (MTBF) rates, reliability is also greatly enhanced. [33] By enabling a robot or robot system to be thoroughly tried and tested in an offline environment, software is helping eliminate the time and cost of designing and commissioning a physical installation. [33] As miniaturization benefits everything from cellphones to industrial and service robots, robot precision has been able to increase. [8] “I think that robot manufacturers such as Universal Robots or Techman Robot are starting to apply this concept by implanting sensors in their robots,” he added. [8] Robots can solve consistency issues throughout production lines. [33]

“Precision, also referred to as repeatability, is the ability of an industrial robot to bring its end effector to the same position and orientation, over and over again,” explained Ilian Bonev, co-founder of the small robotic arm company Mecademic Inc. and a professor of precision robotics at the. cole de Technologie Supieure (. [8] As motion control, actuators, and other technologies progress, industrial robots can complete a broader range of tasks. [8] “The main factor affecting precision in an industrial robot is the gearboxes in its joints,” said Bonev, who noted that factors like encoders and the rigidity of a particular arm will also affect robot precision. [8] Such industrial robots still function well, even in many of today’s advanced automation applications. [8]

The museum will offer visitors an interactive experience about the future of artificial intelligence (AI) and how it will affect different aspects of life, offering an exciting way to discover tomorrow?s trends and opportunities. [37] Now, it?s worth pointing out that AI is expected to affect practically every aspect of life in the future. [34] Sheikh Mohammed highlighted the fact that artificial intelligence (AI) will add $15 trillion to the world?s GDP within a period of 12 years, and said that “the Museum of the Future is a unique incubator for futuristic innovations and design, and we are determined to make the UAE a major contributor to future development.” [37] Accompanying Sheikh Mohammed on his tour were Dubai Crown Prince Hamdan bin Mohammed; Minister of Cabinet Affairs and the Future and Chairman of the World Government Summit Mohammed Abdullah Al Gergawi; Minister of State for Happiness and Wellbeing Ohood bint Khalfan Al Roumi; and Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence (AI) Omar bin Sultan Al Olama. [37]

The Futurism site reports that “Any AI that we use in the future of space exploration will allow us to retrieve data from the places we send probes to, as well as allow us to explore them further, and collect better data. [36] AI is key when we speak about tackling future challenges,” Sheikh Mohammed commented. [37]
