Recently, with the breakthrough development of key AI technology and the continuous mature of actual application scenario, commercial service robot is rising fast. Till now, a great number of industries have begun the robot commercialization process, including retail, restaurant, hotel, logistics, elderly care, real estate, financial service, government fairs, and so on. We can simply say that, the places which offer services can all introduce intelligent robots.
Zhang Jingbin, the IDC Global Robot Research Director, performed one all-around analyze on APAC robot market and trend. He said, in commercial services, the future of intelligent service robots is prospective. Precision assembly, intelligent logistics, smart home, medical health care, shopping assistant, hotel assistant, education assistant, safety guard will have a rapid demand for intelligent robots.
The professional from Harbin Institute of Technology and Director of Robotics Institute Zhao Jie point out, the investment each year in China is the total of last five years, and we have confidence to get the good innovation achievement in the world. Under this background, more and more enterprises are deploying commercial service robots, investing into the continuous development of robot technologies and products. This will reduce the prices of commercial robots.
Professor of Beijing Institute of Technology Zhao Tong thinks that, our government should focus on the support to key areas such as intelligent service robot and artificial intelligence, to create one new path for our robot industry.
To promote the healthy development of the robot industry, we not only need to be fit and healthy, and further enhance the capability and level of robot development, we must also solidify the foundation, to further improve the basis and environment for the development of robots. The future development of innovative AI robotics will have five major trends: anthropomorphic, considerate, professional, superhuman, broad. Only popularization of commercial applications of robots, service robots industry can really grow and develop.
