Where we are
Computers have long outperformed the human mind and now developers are coming after the body. Ai-Da is a hyper-realistic robot that draws people using her eye and a pencil in her hand, while athletically optimized robots are beating world records previously set by humans.
Where we’re going
Integrated software will lead to more flexible, faster and stronger robots with a deeper mind-body connection, meaning they can be activated across a wider range of activities from recreation to the arts.
How to think about it
In the industrial revolution, everything was electrified. In the AI revolution, everything is being cognified. Next up, this cognition will be embodied. Consider mind-body synergies that feel out of scope for computers today, then merge AI and robotics to develop novel solutions.
