How far are the artificial intelligent robots from those in the films?

Over the past two decades, films and shows like Westworld, Prometheus, and Ex Machina have explored sentient characters that are alarmingly indistinguishable from their human counterparts, along with formless, all-encompassing consciousness and deep learning machines.

A world-renowned roboticist at SoftBank Robotics, Angelica Lim, said, “I kind of get angry at that stereotype of the father figure of A.I., especially because it’s a guy. It’s so false.”

“There’s a common platform called Robot Operating System, or ROS. It’s a way for roboticists to share software with each other to build all of these different functionalities for their robots, whether they’re coming from India or Europe or Japan,” Lim continued.

“People are contributing this open-source software to other artificial intelligent robots to allow robots to navigate in different environments and be able to detect obstacles. It’s coming from thousands of people, so it’s most certainly not one person building robots and A.I. It’s a community. There are so many different specialties that have to go into robotics. From electrical engineers to mechanical engineers, to firmware engineers, low-level and high-level software engineers, even designers, artists, linguists, and animators are all working to build these machines.”

Ryan Wu, CMO of QIHAN Technology, which was awarded as one of the Top 10 APAC Robotic Process Automation Companies 2017 because of its Sanbot intelligent robot, claimed that, “Sanbot is the only social robot with centralized management capabilities and therefore opens the door to a world of immense possibilities.”

In film, humans and robots appear to fluidly walk and work among one another when in reality most robots are learning to take their first awkward baby steps.

“On TV you see robots just walking around interacting with people like you normally would. Sometimes robots can’t tell it’s a human, they can’t see their face. They’re just not very smart yet. On TV there are these interesting demos, but most of the time they are controlled by humans. It’s almost like a trick, and it’s giving an impression that’s not quite there,” said Lim.

Humanoid service robots are becoming more common and more diverse. They will soon become a common form of interface to A.I. and will be refined into a new kind of computer animation, like computer animation for movies, with the difference of being physically embodied,” said David Hanson, Founder and CEO of Hanson Robotics Limited.

Has the film industry hit the ceiling regarding their portrayal of artificial intelligence, robotics and humanoids? Is the human race ready to decide such matters regarding the responsibility and issues that such a scientific, progressive undertaking involves? For now, we will have to find contentment while still working out the glitches with Siri and Alexa. While the films we love may inspire or predict such challenges, it looks like we still have a few reels of our own left in which to figure that out.

The three big trends of intelligent service robotics

From nothing to low level and then high level, the intelligent robot has been developing continuously with the development of science and technology. While, the future of intelligent service robotics is going to be more intellectualized and emotional, and finally, reach the end of mutual exist with human beings.

From each statistics, the application volume of advanced service robots is growing rapidly, no matter for business or personal and home use. The future of intelligent service robots is very prospective. As the integrator of serious of technologies, intelligent service robots will be growing to three trends: family orientation, modularization and industrialization.

Family Orientation

With the rapid development of information and accelerating speed of people’s daily life and work, people are trying to free from the heavy and repetitive house work; With the problem of aging society, more and more elderly people need to be taken care of, and the guarantees and services from the society are required. Thus, the markets of home service robot will be larger and larger, such as care robot, robot toy, security robot for home and cleaning robot.

Modularization

Presently, robotic technologies are developing in the orientations of intelligent machine and systems. The main trends are the structure’s modularization and re-configuration, control technology’s openness and network; servo drive technology’s digitalization and decentralization; multi-sensor integrating technology’s functionization; the design to working scenarios needs to be promoted and operation’s flexibility and the system’s networking and intellectualization, and so on. If advanced AI robot is popular like TV, computer and other home appliances, the standardization and modularization are the key factors.

Industrialization

To well developing the industrialization of intelligent service robot, robot and solution suppliers must try to apply the robot to actual lives. Like other machines, if you’d like to adopt one commercial service robot, you need to consider the developing target and assess the cost, which are very important.

Review the basics of intelligent robots in our daily life

Intelligent robots have been helping human beings with the tasks that are either dangerous or repetitive. Additionally, some customized intelligent robots are designed to carry out specific tasks for personal, professional, and industrial applications such as elderly assistance, psychotherapy, and robotic pets among others. Intelligent robots make use of artificial intelligence (AI) and are operational without the need of human inputs. And they can work independently on a specified task and can also work in tandem with human beings in various service and industrial applications.

The global intelligent robot market is segmented on the basis of application into service robots and industrial robots. Further, the service robots are sub-segmented into professional commercial service robots and personal service robots at home. The intelligent commercial service robots are used across security & defense, logistics, firefighting, medical, demining, maintenance, inspection, and various other applications, while personal service robots are used across household, leisure, and entertainment applications. Industrial robots are further sub-segmented on the basis of their applications into beverages, food, electronics, and automotive segments.

Within the professional service robot segment, medical domain has been a key growth segment where there is a growing demand for smart hospital delivery and robot surgeons. Comparatively, industrial robots are more popular than service robots and these are anticipated to drive the intelligent robots market during the forecast period. Moreover, the growth in the deployment of intelligent educational robot is expected to be a promising prospect for the intelligent robot vendors.

The noteworthy drivers of intelligent robots market include adoption of intelligent robots by e-commerce sector, growing demand from the healthcare industry, the increasing domestic service sector, and the rising demand of care robots for the elderly. The growing service robot segment is a fundamental part of the advanced computer industry and much of the processing unit, sensor technology, and software is developed by intelligent robot manufacturers.

Artificial Intelligence to Change the Hotel Services

Today, intelligent robot has been the “spokesperson”, more than the carrier of artificial intelligence. Hilton and IBM Watson conducted one test on the robot receptionist; Aloft Hotel under Starwood began using intelligent robot to deliver things for passengers; Crowne Plaza Hotel has also introduced the similar hotel service robot. Except for the reception, delivering things, weather broadcasting. The commercial humanoid robots can offer activities and promotions service for hotel.

The turnover rate in hotel industry is high, so as the training cost. Artificial intelligent going into hotel is an invertible trend. Not only the hotel service robot suppliers, but also the hotel managers and investors have realized this point. And now, there are more than 200 hotels that have introduced the artificial intelligent robot for hotel service.

“With the subversion and application of intelligent service robot and AI technology, hotel industry, as the representative area of high density service labor, will be the key area the service robot will go to.”, Xun Liang, the Secretary General of China Wisdom Hotel League, introduced.

Xun Liang told more, service robots which can be applied into hotels includes reception and guide robot, self check-in service robot, room emotional robot, autonomous delivery robot, autonomous robot security guards, vending robot, luggage fetching robot and restaurant service robot and others. Each robot owns the unique working capabilities finish their work.

Some time ago, Fliggy, the sub-rand of Alibaba Group announced it would create the artificial intelligent hotel in Hangzhou City. Till now, in some of the rooms of its High Xuan Spa Hotel have supported to control the curtain, light, TV and other devices by voice commands via the intelligent robot box “Tmall Elf One”. And passengers can call room service directly with the robot.

He Zhuangkong, the CKO of Shandong Travel Hotel Association, pointed out, “outdated ideological concept limited the AI application into hotels, and there are many hotels that have not noted the evolution of artificial intelligence. Though the investment into AI in hotels is high, the benefits to hotels are incalculable in the long term. And of course, artificial intelligence robots cannot overtake human services totally.”
