Robotics in Business - Business case

Traditional robotics has seen huge growth in industrial manufacturing but is often limited to mass-production in highly structured environments.

Enabling robots to deal with (natural) variations in products the need to handle, in variability in tasks (e.g., flexible manufacturing and small production runs), as well as enabling robots to work along-side human workers requires going away from inflexible programming and equipping robots with the capability to reason and adapt on their own, i.e., artificial intelligence. This need becomes even more pronounced if we consider semi-structured environments (e.g., restaurants or supermarkets), or even services at a customer’s home. In this masterclass, I’ll highlight some recent developments in the field of AI-enabled robotics for business, but also discuss the current challenges and limitations we face in this field.
