From Basic to Autonomous Robots- The Intelligent Automation Robot Types


Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Intelligent Automation (IA) Robots can be categorized into different types based on the level of activities they perform, the number of interactions they have, the core characteristics they exhibit, and the underlying technologies that goes into them. This article describes four distinct software robot types starting from a low maturity level as Basic Robots to ending with a high maturity state as fully Autonomous Robots, and in between Smart Robots and Collaborative Robots categories that step by step enhances the maturity of IA robots. The article takes a deep dive into each of these four types discussing how the role of robots in business process automation grows with each level providing the digital capacity to reduce the repetitive, dull, laborious tasks carried out by human workers in day to day business operations.

The AAAI 2005 Mobile Robot Competition and Exhibition

Two overarching goals were promoted for the 2005 Mobile Robot Competition. The first was to give the competitions an exhibitionstyle format to make them as accessible to different areas of research as possible. This was change would place the competitions and exhibitions demonstrated at the Fourteenth Annual AAAI directly in line with the conference, Mobile Robot Competition and Exhibition, an teams would need to handle the challenges involved event hosted at the Twentieth National Conference with noisy, cluttered, and unstructured on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI 2005). The robot event had a particularly strong human environments. Scavenger Hunt: Autonomous robots were required to search a cluttered and crowded environment This year, AAAI changed the venue format for a defined list of objects and were from a convention center to a hotel setting. The Scavenger as defined by the team, and feedback Hunt event was organized by Douglas from the participants. Blank from Bryn Mawr College, the Robot Robot Challenge: Robots were required to attend Challenge and the Open Interaction Task were the conference autonomously, including organized by Ashley Stroupe from the Jet registering for the conference, navigating the Propulsion Laboratory, the research component conference hall, talking with attendees, and of the exhibition was organized by Magdalena answering questions.

The AAAI 2005 Mobile Robot Competition and Exhibition

The Fourteenth Annual AAAI Mobile Robot Competition and Exhibition was held at the National Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in July 2005. This year marked a change in the venue format from a conference hall to a hotel, which changed how the robot event was run. As a result, the robots were much more visible to the attendees of the AAAI conference than in previous years. This allowed teams that focused on human-robot interaction to have many more opportunities to interact with people. This article describes the events that were held at the conference, including the Scavenger Hunt, Open Interaction, Robot Challenge, and Robot Exhibition.

The AAAI-2001 Mobile Robot Exhibition

A short summary of each robot demonstrates the variety in form and function among the exhibitions. Programming a robot is often a complex and Intelligence (AAAI) Mobile Robot involved task. By allowing the robot to learn and wide variety in behavior and form, the robots practice behaviors at run time, Darrin Bentivegna in the exhibition created a sense of the broad aims to create robots that can learn range of function in the robotic community. The exhibition has involving air hockey against a humanoid provided past AI researchers with new perspectives robot. After a human has specified some primitives and ideas.

How Humanlike Should a Social Robot Be: A User-Centered Exploration

AAAI Conferences

Robot designers commonly emphasize humanlikeness as an important design feature to make robots social or user-friendly. To understand how users make sense of the design characteristics of robots, we asked 6 participants to classify and interpret the appearance of existing robots in relation to their function and potential usefulness. All the robots had humanlike aspects in their design, and participants most commonly remarked on these humanlike features of the robots. However, the commonsense logic of the “Uncanny Valley” (UV) in HRI design, which suggests that robots should be similar to humans to some degree without being too humanlike, was not supported by participant comments, which did not correlate humanlikeness to user-friendliness in line with the UV hypothesis. Rather, participants related the design features of robots to their everyday contexts, and focused their commentary on context-dependent design implications. As a result, we suggest our understanding of the design characteristics of robots should include the perspectives of users from the earliest stages of design so we can understand their contextual interpretations of different design characteristics. Open and modularized technical platforms could support the inclusion of users in the creation of future social robots.
