The Future of Robotics And Artificial Intelligence

In this talk Stanford University professor Andrew Ng discusses machine learningcomputer vision and his efforts to advance robotics research. If robots are to become truly useful for humanity, they must possess the ability to perceive and distinguish between objects, places and persons. A requirement that presents a set of unique challenges for robotics programmers and engineers to grapple with. If such engineering challenges can be overcome, some believe that we could see robots become as ubiquitous as cell phones; “In five or ten years robots will routinely be functioning in human environments.” Source: Reid Simmons professor of robotics; Carnegie Mellon University Simmons work focuses on socially interactive robots another vital and important aspect of robotics research.
