1. Programming Articulated Robots: Design, Planning & Control
Articulated robots have jointed arms and hands and are programmed to perform a task. They need to be taught what exists in their environment, the coordinates of these objects in space, what to do with their arms and hands and in what order. Careful planning and precision design of the robotic system is critical to creating robotic movements that are efficient, conserve power and perform the intended task. In this lesson, you will learn the basics of robotics design.
2. Ethics of Artificial Intelligence
Developing machines that think raises ethical questions about the machines and the people that create them. In this lesson, we'll discuss ethics as they apply to artificial intelligence and why this is a concern that's not just part of science fiction.
3. Artificial Intelligence in Everyday Life
In this lesson we will first understand what artificial intelligence is all about. Next, we will discuss how we currently use this technology in our everyday lives. Finally, we will discuss the future of artificial intelligence.
4. Artificial Intelligence Uses in Health Care & Medicine
Technological advances have boosted the healthcare provider's ability to make better decisions. Read this lesson to learn more about the impact of artificial intelligence in the healthcare industry.
5. Artificial Intelligence Uses in Manufacturing
Artificial Intelligence and machine learning technologies have the potential to change the manufacturing industry for the better. This lesson will take you through the benefits of these technologies while explaining how they work.
6. The Future of AI & Advanced Robotics: Scalability
In this lesson, you will learn about how developers use smart devices to mimic human senses and to make intelligent decisions from various inputs as well as defining scalability and where technology is going.
7. AI & the Economy of the Future
This lesson highlights how AI is driving certain areas in global economics for corporations and governments. We will also understand how this trending technology, coupled with our data, will impact our jobs, and our lives in the future.
8. Robots & the Future Workplace
The idea of robots in the workplace might sound a bit out there and futuristic, but it is already happening. This lesson will discuss robots in the workplace, some of the advantages, and the potential issues that can arise.
9. The Future of AI: Impacts on Industry, Governments & Society
This lesson will explore the future prospects of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, its impact on the society, the industry and the government in the future. The lesson will also discuss the probable designs of the AI and robotics that will ensure maximum benefits and keep all the risks at bay.
