History of AI in 33 Breakthroughs – The First AI Driven Robot

In the recently released World Robotics Report, 517 385 new industrial robotics will be installed in 2021, a record high. This represents a growth of 31% on an annual basis. This brought the total number of robots in operation around the world to 3.5 million. It was a record.

The robot’s record came half a decade after SHAKEY was developed, the first \”mobile intelligent\” robot. According to the IEEE Milestone citation for 2017, it \”could sense its environment, infer implicit from explicit facts, create plans and recover from mistakes in plan execution. It could also communicate in ordinary English.

The robot that would start the Third Industrial Revolution.
