This week’s episode on artificial intelligence (AI) focused on robots.

After providing examples of current robots, the host listed three robotic concepts: Localisation, planning, and manipulation.

For a robot to interact with its environment, it needs to know where it is (localisation) and how to move somewhere else (planning). In order to get there, a robot will have to sense its path and take actions to enable its progress (manipulation).

This episode was easier to relate to since the concepts were closely linked to what humans already do innately well. The problem is creating for robots artificial versions of what evolutionary time has given us.

Interestingly one training and practising arena for robots is games. AI playing games is in the next episode.
