Is robotics part of AI? Is AI part of robotics? What is the difference between the two terms? Let’s find out!


A lot of people out there might confuse, are these technologies in the same field or not? I’ve done several researched between these two, some says that robot technology and AI are one and the same, while others think that AI is a subset of robotics. What I can conclude here, for these couple of years, they need each other. When there’s robot, there will be AI too. But at the same time, they’re totally different.


Robotic Technology

– a mechanical device that is capable of movement

– programmable machines which are usually able to carry out a series of actions autonomously, or semi-autonomously.


Artificial Intelligence (AI)

– basically a computer program designed to solve difficult problems which humans routinely solve

– involves developing computer programs to complete tasks which would otherwise require human intelligence
