Artificial Intelligence has advanced over the years and it has transformed the world completely. Machines are becoming smarter each time and they are very intuitive and can perform a number of tasks at the same time without reducing their efficiency.
Are you wondering what artificial intelligence is and what it can do? Look at self-driven cars which used to be imagination and are now a reality. Activities like booking appointments can now be done by machines and we have drones which can deliver orders to people’s homes. Robots are even performing shipping and manufacturing duties.
Check out these videos which demonstrate how Artificial Intelligence has steadily improved over the past few years.
1. Boston Dynamics assisting bot
In this video, there is a robot dog which is not sure about how to go beyond a barrier of a door that is in front of it. The dog enters and opens that door. It moves aside to allow another robot to come in. This Artificial Intelligence application is amazing!
In fact, a few days ago the robustness of this bot got checked. The eagerness of the bot to finish what it is supposed to do is really amazing.
2. Amazon’s store bots
In case you are wondering how Amazon stocks inventories and prepares orders, here is an explanation. The company has artificial intelligence stocks systems which automate the activities that take place at the warehouse. These systems have made Amazon very effective. Those systems weigh 145 kg and are sixteen inches tall.
3. Autonomous motorbike operating bot
Valentine Rossi has won the MotoGP race many times. Another bot named Motobot tried to defeat Valentine, unfortunately, it never succeeded. The recording of that contest is very breathtaking. One very outstanding thing about Motobot is that the bike he had used was not modified. The whole process was operated by the bot with the help of its 6 actuators. The actuators are capable of accelerating and maneuvering the bike with any kind of information point.
4. The DeepMind AI for Google
Google created DeepMind, an AI which learned how to run, walk, climb and jump without anyone guiding it. The recording showing this is really breathtaking. The bot was never equipped with any information but it was able to learn how to move. There is a video which shows an avatar designed by a program that navigates obstacles which were put on its way. The robot only needs an incentive to get to every point.
5. The interview with a bot named Sophia
Sophia is a very popular humanoid robot whose brilliance has greatly improved since she was created. Her existence has brought about so many things. In the video recording, she was interviewed by people based in Saudi Arabia and the way she responded to the questions was amazing. All her responses were properly crafted and brilliant.
6. AI system, Atlas?
Atlas is a bipedal humanoid robot which was designed by Boston Dynamics, a U.S. robotics company. This artificial system can make various movements like a person or even better than a person. The robot can sense obstacles and avoid them when moving around. It can do parkour, backflips and can even run through the snow.
Atlas was even taught Kung Fu. The way it does it is very impressive and it is likely to gain more skills in the future.
7. The bugger cooking robot, Flippy
Flippy got designed by Miso Company using 3D, PC vision, and thermal vision. This system got trained in how to prepare burgers. The extensive understanding model was created using information about the items that are found in the cookhouse. The temperature for when the grill heats up and the correct temperature for preparing burgers were also used. If the kitchen puts food on a grill, Flippy system will sense where it is located.
8. Google Duplex
We cannot fail to mention Google Duplex in this list. It was launched recently during the company’s I/O event. This Artificial Intelligence device makes systems appear like real people. It can talk like a person and it can do tasks that people do.
At its heart, there is a periodic neural network created with TensorFlow Extended. And to make it seem more real, speeches such as “hmm” and “um” have been included in it.
9. Amazon Go
This is not a robot. Amazon Go is an Artificial Intelligence technology that is bringing great changes in the retail and shopping fields. It is a shop which does not have a cashier. Clients can scan their app when they enter the shop. After that, they go in, take whatever they need and go away. The customers pay for the items immediately they leave the store. With such systems, the way customers are served is changing. They no longer need to queue to check out. This technology has been thought of for so long and it is finally here.
10. “Daddy’s Car” — music created by AI
In this video, the first ever music created by AI is shown off. The “Daddy’s Car” song was created in a research lab. The researchers created FlowMachines which is a system which learns the various styles of singing from a big database of songs. FlowMachines exploits a great combination of interacting styles, optimization and transfer. It creates musing using various styles.
Artificial Intelligence is becoming more human each day. Every industry is likely to start applying Artificial Intelligence in order to function efficiently.
