It’s Here! How AI Robot Will Revolutionize Manufacturing

Though manufacturing has long been considered the industry with the highest degree of automation, fully-automated factories still seemed far away. AI-defined robotics is positioned to change that!

In my previous Robotics 2.0 series articles, we discussed how AI will enable autonomous learning. And how it will allow robots to perform fine movements that they couldn’t do in the past.

I described how AI launched the Robotics 2.0 era. And talked about the application of AI robots in the logistics industry. By observing this first application scenario of AI robot, we can predict how this technology will eventually affect our productivity, employment, and everyday life.

In this article, we will focus on the manufacturing industry. Currently, most of the robotic arms and automation equipment are used in manufacturing. However, to most people’s surprise, many manufacturing processes still remain manual. And AI robot is positioned to change that. How will robots with better dexterity and autonomous learning capabilities transform processes and industry landscape? How should companies respond to the disruptive innovations that Robotics 2.0 brings?

The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed.” — William Gibson
