Little Robot Sees Himself for the First Time

Technology is an exciting thing. Advancements are being made daily to bring about that futuristic world that many of us are looking forward to. However, these advancements will probably come in the form of intelligent AI rather than flying cars.

Accordingly, although science fiction portrays AI as robots with human-like characteristics, AI can actually encompass anything from the search algorithms used by Google to autonomous weapons.

Moreover, most uses of artificial intelligence today are more commonly known as narrow AI (or weak AI), in that it is designed to perform a narrow task such as internet searches. However, that being said, the long-term goal of many researchers is to create general AI (AGI or strong AI).

Put simply, while narrow AI can sometimes outperform humans at whatever its specific task is, like playing chess or solving equations, AGI would outperform humans at nearly every cognitive task.

Ultimately, one of the most common uses for narrow AI involves software testing. Correspondingly, as the popularity of artificial intelligence grows, more and more testers are realizing AI has the capacity to make cumbersome and time-consuming tasks simpler.

You can learn more about the advantages of using AI when developing software by reaching out to a team that offers AI consulting services. Nowadays there are some fantastic businesses out there that make use of AI technology and software and therefore it is incredibly exciting to think about what else the future might hold.

For now though, take a look at this amazing video.

QBO, from Thecorpora Robotic Corporation, is an open source project which seeks to advance the field of AI. These little robots are pretty advanced. You can read up more on the blog which is fascinating.

QBO seems to be able to learn images and match them. While this technology has been around for a few years, it is great to see it being implemented like this.

The future looks bright.
