Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are creating new opportunities in most areas of business. With little surprise, AI and machine learning are frequently applied to robots to improve their efficiency and capabilities. Analytics Insight brought this topic to our attention in their article, “Deep Learning Will Make Robots Grasp and Move Objects Easily.”

Robots bring more advantages than disadvantages to the workplace. They enrich a company’s ability to succeed while improving the lives of real, human employees who are still needed to keep operations running smoothly.

With robots in the industrial sector, safety is key when adding robots in the work environment. Some AI robotics organizations are even creating solutions where robots can comprehend what’s in their current environment and respond likewise.

Most experts say robots will increasingly complement flesh-and-blood workers by taking over certain tasks, rather than replacing them wholesale. However, there is a continued fear that widespread automation will kill jobs.
