The world of business and technology is warmly welcoming the notion of artificial intelligence, and according to current trends, research in its field is about to become even more advanced.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is defined as the development of computer systems that can mimic human behaviour, including speech recognition and decision-making.
On a personal level, there’s a high chance that you already use AI in your everyday life, whether it’s asking Siri about the weather forecast or clicking onto Facebook group photo and realising that each person has already been recognised by their facial features.
In celebration of the latest advances in AI technology, the Science Museum invites Londoners to “discover how robots and society have been shaped by the industrial revolution, 20th century popular culture and our dreams of the future”.
The exhibition explores 500 years of humanoid robots, featuring a unique collection of over 100 robots.
But what about the bigger picture? Given the global attention robots are receiving, they are arguably the most fascinating products of artificial intelligence.
Visitors at the exhibition had some mixed views: whilst many remain optimistic about the future of technology with robots, some are still quite skeptical. Listen to find out more:
The Robots Exhibition at the London Science Museum is available until 3 September 2017.
