Humanoids Ushered In A New Era Of Creative Possibilities With AI

Astro Boy, the son of science, was born around 70 years ago. Humanoid robots that appear and act just like humans have long been a popular science fiction trope. And now we see a surge in humanoid robot R&D in the business sphere.

The time when the scientific progeny can peacefully cohabit with humans is getting closer.

Where have humanoid robots come and what do they have in store for the future?

What Is A Humanoid?

A non-humanoid possessing humanoid traits is said to be a humanoid. Humanoid is derived from the English terms “human” and “-old,” which signify “resembling” in this context. The word was first used in 1870 to describe natives of European-controlled territories. Humanoid robots, often known as androids, are robots designed to look and act like humans. Humanoid qualities in reported sightings of yetis, sasquatches, and bigfoot continue to pique our interest.

In its purest form, a humanoid robot is an actuated biped robot the size of a human that has a torso, limbs, and a head, and is programmed to do tasks normally associated with humans.

There are three areas in which humans excel above machines: Humans can discover, enquire, and be receptive to novel concepts and approaches.  Computers will never be able to match human imagination. Empathy is a uniquely human trait that allows us to connect with others and form lasting bonds.

Why Are Humanoids Important?

Humanoid robots are increasingly commonplace in many scientific fields as valuable research aids. To create humanoid robots, scientists investigate the mechanics of the human body (biomechanics). However, the effort put into trying to recreate the human body leads to new insights into how it works.

Companies that build human capital are more consistent and resilient performers and are better at attracting and retaining talent.Some of the most cutting-edge technology in the world is being used to develop humanoid robots. Boston Dynamics created the humanoid robot Atlas and the quadruped robot SPOT with funding from DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency). Atlas shot to fame after posting videos of its parkour feats to YouTube.

Humanoid robot research is being conducted by a growing number of corporations and universities. Kawasaki’s Kaleido is the humanoid robot closest to taking over tedious jobs for human safety, but robots that can perform remarkable acts like backflips, playing instruments, or cooking are garnering more attention from the media.

About 85 kilograms in weight, this humanoid robot is about 180 centimeters tall. Because Kaleido is so similar to an adult human in size and strength, it may perform activities that are too perilous for humans to handle alone.

FAQ’s: Humanoids And AI

Who is the first humanoid robot?

At around the same time, Ichiro Kato of Waseda University in Japan created WABOT, the first humanoid robot to be statically and later dynamically balanced. These researchers have paved the way for the development of humanoid robots and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

Is a humanoid an artificial intelligence?

Humanoid robots are machines designed to look and behave like humans. These robots are often designed to mimic human-like expressions, interactions, and movements, and they are equipped with a wide variety of cameras, sensors, and, more recently, artificial intelligence and machine learning technology.

What is the purpose of humanoid robots?

Humanoid robots are meant to look like people and execute a variety of jobs that would be easier for them to do if they had human proportions and mobility.

What Is an Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR)?

Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) are mobile robots that can navigate their environment without human intervention. Production and logistics professionals frequently employ it for transport-related operations.

What Is an Industrial Robot?

Within a manufacturing facility, these robots are used to transport raw materials, finished goods, and specialized equipment. Because of their articulated architecture, they can mimic human motions in industrial process activities while still outperforming humans in terms of efficiency and accuracy.
