I remember in school being made to watch I, Robot, a film where robots are a part of everyday life, making things easier and keeping humans safe. That is until they turn evil and try to take over the world. So yeah, that is pretty much what I had in mind when people started seriously talking about artificial intelligence (AI).
Sport plays an important role within our modern society and has so for centuries. For some, sport is important for the health and longevity benefits that they provide, for others, sport is a channel to socialise through; whether it’s by participating or by spectating. For most however, sport is a healthy source of entertainment; watching athletes push themselves to their physical limits and continually improving their performance is all a part of the thrill of sport. But what if I told you, that with the use of robotics and artificial intelligence, we are able to push ourselves and athletes to exceed our current physical capabilities?

The influence of technology cannot be ignored. Advancements have connected us in ways we previously couldn’t imagine, allowing tasks to be completed efficiently. In business settings, technology has increased the pace of the work environment with a shift from analogue to digital. This is undoubtedly necessary as businesses need to be moving rapidly in order to keep up with competitors, consumer demand and to allow evolution. Technology has swiftly shifted the operation of businesses, creating an efficient workforce.
The initiation of Artificial Intelligence in the workplace has been met with mixed responses. Some have been quick to embrace the technology whilst others are much more skeptical. In business, a more efficient work environment has been promised with the adoption of AI encouraged. Whether we are conscious or not, AI is already present in our lives and it is only going to flourish. Here are some examples of AI in your everyday life.
The big question
On my way to work every morning, I see people on the train, their earphones in and their eyes are glued to their devices. Some are sending emails, others flicking through Facebook, few watching last night’s Instagram stories, scrolling through their Insta feed, because everyone knows, if you don’t Instagram it, it didn’t happen. So here comes the big question: Can we happily live without social media?
During the last decade, robots escaped the factory floor and started conquering big cities. Robots in assembly lines, robots in accounting, robots in welding, if all this sounds pretty normal to you, then you need to read about the following robots!
1. A Tooth Brushing Robot
The future of militaries across the globe will have a heavy focus on artificial intelligence (AI). Militaries are heavily investing in robots because they believe they will play a key role in future defence force endeavours. Both the US and UK military are now utilising battlefield robots in combat exercises. These robots are working with soldiers to perform dangerous tasks such as clearing minefields and bridging tank trenches.

Social media has become synonymous with our everyday lives. From connecting with friends and colleagues to communicating with services; a reliance on social media has been formed. The introduction of Artificial Intelligence on these platforms has promised to personalise and enhance our online experiences personally and professionally.

The cyber woman is born.
The wait is over! Realbotix will launch their version of the cyber woman, specifically designed for male companionship, in September. This robot isn’t quite on Ex-Machina’s level but is insanely impressive nonetheless.
In New York for a few days selling my wares and it becomes increasingly apparent that being a tech entrepreneur is much harder than first thought.
