The idea of robots supporting humans in daily tasks is no longer just science fiction. Thanks to technological progress, AI robots are now part of various industries. Let’s take a closer look at how advanced AI integrates these helpers into our lives, supporting entrepreneurs today. Read on to find out more.

How do AI robots change thanks

AI robots, thanks to advanced algorithms, are constantly evolving. Machine learning and deep learning enable robots to gain experience and expand their skill set. AI robots are also becoming increasingly efficient. Additionally, AI robots are able to:

  • learn new skills autonomously,
  • adapt to changing work conditions,
  • optimize production processes in real time.

An example could be an industrial robot that, through the use of AI, autonomously detects anomalies in the production line and adjusts its working parameters to prevent downtime. It can analyze and adapt its actions to current production needs, resulting in increased efficiency and quality of performed tasks.

Tesla Optimus Gen-2

Moving on to specifics, the Tesla Optimus Gen-2 is an example of next-generation robotics where AI plays a key role. This machine exhibits capabilities that surpass previous expectations, such as sorting items or folding clothes. Elon Musk envisions Optimus handling a wide range of household and production tasks. With the use of innovative technologies like touch sensors in its fingers or advanced actuators, this robot is becoming increasingly autonomous and functional. It’s worth noting that Optimus Gen-2 is capable of:

  • independent movement and manipulation of objects,
  • performing complex movements such as squats, and even
  • gently lifting very fragile objects, such as eggs, without causing damage.

The market for humanoid robots, including Optimus Gen-2, is growing at an incredible pace. According to statistics published by Markets and Markets, it will increase from $1.8 billion in 2023 to $13.8 billion by 2028.

Figure, or BMW robots

In the context of the automotive industry, it’s worth mentioning the Figure robots used in the BMW factory. This is a great example of how AI robots can assist workers in their daily tasks.

These humanoid AI robots support workers in their daily tasks, such as sheet metal processing and warehouse logistics management. Their versatility and quick adaptation to various tasks are impressive.

They can use tools and methods just like humans, making them highly functional. The rapid development of these robots, resulting in walking prototypes within a year of starting work, is impressive.

It’s worth mentioning that Figure robots are used for tasks such as warehouse logistics. They are designed as multitasking devices. For example, the Figure 01 model autonomously made coffee in response to a voice command, showcasing its incredible learning capabilities.

Google Aloha

The Google Aloha project demonstrates how advanced AI algorithms can be used to accomplish complex tasks. Unlike Tesla’s and Figure’s projects, this system is based on off-the-shelf components and 3D printing technology. Therefore, it is an example of an economical approach to building complex robotic systems. It’s worth emphasizing that Aloha can:

  • perform complex manipulation tasks – even as complicated as frying shrimps or opening kitchen cabinets,
  • use existing data sets – this allows Aloha to increase the effectiveness of task execution,
  • understand and predict human behaviors.

If you already see the use of this AI robot in your business, it is worth mentioning that the cost of building the Mobile Aloha system is $32,000.

Moxie, a robot for kids

Moxie is an innovative AI robot that helps children develop. It is an example of how AI robots can be used not only in business but also in education. Moxie helps children learn through play and develop social and emotional skills. Moxie’s key features include:

  1. Developing social skills – AI robot helps children learn empathy and build relationships.
  2. Supporting education –Moxie uses interactive stories and games to teach children new skills.
  3. Promoting healthy habits – the robot encourages daily affirmations and breathing exercises.

Each of these points underscores the importance of combining technology with human needs. For example, in the case of social skills development, Moxie can simulate conversations and situations that teach children how to interact with other people.

AI robots – the future in business

AI robots are already revolutionizing industries like manufacturing and warehouse logistics. Their impact on the industry is undeniable, and the future looks even more promising. In addition to the discussed examples from giants like Google and Tesla, AI robots also include:

  • Forerunner from Kepler – an AI robot with exceptional precision, equipped with advanced actuators, sensors, and a versatile wide-angle camera,
  • Digit from Agility Robotics – this is an example of a bipedal robot designed to work in warehouses and capable of navigating human spaces.

Each of these robots brings new possibilities to businesses, not only streamlining processes but also opening doors to new forms of collaboration between humans and machines. These robots will have an increasingly significant impact on our lives, both personally and professionally.

In conclusion, AI robots already play a crucial role in many business sectors, and their significance will continue to grow with technological advancements. They are no longer a futuristic concept but a reality that requires us to be flexible and ready for the changes they bring. For fledgling entrepreneurs, it’s important to keep track of the development of this technology and consider how they can leverage AI robots in their operations to gain a competitive edge and optimize processes.
