Robotics comes into ‘maturity’ at annual ICRA conference

Forget fantasies of humanoid robots living equally amongst us, for now. The latest trend in robotics and artificial intelligence isn’t looking ahead to science fiction scenarios but is trying instead to perfect and fully deploy technology that’s actually been around for a few years.

That was one of the big take-aways at the 2019 International Conference on Robotics and Automation taking place in Montreal this year. Frontline researchers and firms are focussing heavily on technology that can be deployed more robustly into our everyday lives and with little or no risk of failure, the robotisists say.

Think self driving cars that will never crash or humanoids that won’t bump into the people they’ll be working alongside in giant fulfillment warehouses.

Dr. Anqi Xu of Canadian firm Element AI calls this year’s big trend the “democratization of artificial intelligence”.
