ABSTRACT
Artificial Intelligence or sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated
by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans and other animals. Some of
the activities that it is designed to do is speech recognition, learning, planning and problem solving.
Since Robotics is the field concerned with the connection of perception to action, Artificial
Intelligence must have a central role in Robotics if the connection is to be intelligent. Artificial
Intelligence addresses the crucial questions of: what knowledge is required in any aspect of
thinking; how should that knowledge be represented; and how should that knowledge be used.
Robotics challenges Artificial Intelligence by forcing it to deal with real objects in the real world.
INTRODUCTION
Is robotics part of AI? Is AI part of robotics? What is the
difference between the two terms? Robotics and artificial
intelligence serve different purposes. However, people often get
them mixed up. A lot of people wonder if robotics is a subset of
artificial intelligence or if they are the same thing.
ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE VS ROBOTICS
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science. It involves developing computer
programs to complete tasks which would otherwise require human intelligence. AI algorithms can
tackle learning, perception, problem-solving, language-understanding and/or logical reasoning.
AI is used in many ways within the modern world, from personal assistants to self-driving car.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is evolving rapidly. While science fiction every so often portraits AI as
robots closely as possible to humans.
However, Robotics is a branch of technology which deals with robots. Robots are programmable
machines which are usually able to carry out a series of actions autonomously, or semi-
autonomously.
There are three main important factors which constitute a robot:
1. Robots interact with the physical world via sensors and actuators.
2. Robots are programmable.
3. Robots are usually autonomous or semi-autonomous.
Robots are "usually" autonomous because some robots aren't. Telerobots, for example, are entirely
controlled by a human operator but telerobotics is still classed as a branch of robotics.
Eventually, artificially intelligent robots are the bridge between robotics and AI. These are robots
which are controlled by AI programs.
Many robots are not artificially intelligent. Up until quite recently, all industrial robots could only
be programmed to carry out a repetitive series of movements. As we have discussed, repetitive
movements do not require artificial intelligence. Non-intelligent robots are quite limited in their
functionality. AI algorithms are often necessary to allow the robot to perform more complex tasks.
DEFINING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
TRAITS OF AN AI
Capable of predicting and adapting, AI uses algorithms that discover patterns from huge amounts
of information.
Makes decisions on its own, AI is capable to augment human intelligence, deliver insights and
improve productivity.
Continuous learning, AI uses algorithms to construct analytical models. From those algorithms, AI
technology will find out how to perform tasks through innumerable rounds of trial and error.
AI is forward-looking, AI is a tool that allows people to reconsider how we analyze data and
integrate information, and then use these insights to make better decisions.
AI is capable of motion and perception.
TYPES OF AI
Type 1
Artificial intelligence today is accurately known as narrow AI (or weak AI), it is non-sentient
machine intelligence, typically designed to perform a narrow task (e.g. only facial recognition or
only internet searches or only driving a car).
However, the long-term goal of many researchers is to create an artificial general intelligence (AGI
or strong AI) which is a machine with the ability to apply intelligence to any problem, rather than
just one specific problem, typically meaning "at least as smart as a typical human".
While narrow AI may outperform humans at whatever its specific task is, like playing chess or
solving equations, AGI would outperform humans at nearly every cognitive task.
The ultimate hypothetical goal is achieving superintelligence (ASI) which is far surpassing that of
the brightest and most gifted human minds. Due to recursive self-improvement, superintelligence is
expected to be a rapid outcome of creating artificial general intelligence.[ CITATION Rob18 \l 1033
]
[ CITATION Rob18 \l 1033 ]
Type 2 (based on functionalities)
Purely Reactive
Reactive machines are basic in that they do not store ‘memories’ or use past experiences to
determine future actions. They simply perceive the world and react to it. IBM’s Deep Blue, which
defeated chess grandmaster Kasporov, is a reactive machine that sees the pieces on a chess board
and reacts to them. It cannot refer to any of its prior experiences, and cannot improve with practice.
Limited Memory
Limited Memory machines can retain data for a short period of time. While they can use this data
for a specific period of time, they cannot add it to a library of their experiences. Many self-driving
cars use Limited Memory technology: they store data such as the recent speed of nearby cars, the
distance of such cars, the speed limit, and other information that can help them navigate roads.
Figure 1: Future of AI
Theory of Mind
Psychology tells us that people have thoughts, emotions, memories, and mental models that drive
their behaviour. Theory of Mind researchers hope to build computers that imitate our mental
models, by forming representations about the world, and about other agents and entities in it. One
goal of these researchers is to build computers that relate to humans and perceive human
intelligence and how people’s emotions are impacted by events and the environment. While plenty
of computers use models, a computer with a ‘mind’ does not yet exist. Examples like C-3PO R2-D2
from Star Wars Universe and Sonny in the 2004 film I, Robot
Self-Awareness
Self-aware machines are the stuff of science fiction, though many AI enthusiasts believe them to be
the ultimate goal of AI development. Even if a machine can operate as a person does, for example
by preserving itself, predicting its own needs and demands, and relating to others as an equal, the
question of whether a machine can become truly self-aware, or ‘conscious’, is best left for
philosophers. Examples like Eva in the 2015 movie Ex Machina and Synths in the 2015 TV series
Humans.
ACHIEVING AI
There are many ways of achieving AI some of them are as follows:
[ CITATION Kum18 \l 1033 ]
But we will be discussing the most important among them.
Figure 2: AI Branches
NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING (NLP)
Natural language processing helps computers communicate with people in their very own language
and scales other language-related tasks. For example, NLP makes it possible for computers to read
text, hear speech, interpret it, measure thoughts and emotions, and determine which parts are
important. Today's machines can analyze more language-based information than humans without
exhaustion and in a continuous, unbiased way.
VISION
In recent years, the cost of acquiring and identifying large data sets has gone down due to advances
in IIoT, making machine learning more accessible for inspection applications then ever before. The
other main way AI is used in vision systems is to improve recognition applications continuously.
AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES
Autonomous cars generate data from their surroundings and feeds it into the intelligent agent,
which in turn takes decisions and allow an autonomous vehicle to conduct specific activities in
almost the same environment, a repetitive loop is established called a perception activity cycle. The
figure below shows the autonomous vehicle data flow:
[ CITATION Suh18 \l 1033 ]
MACHINE LEARNING
Machine Learning (ML) is an algorithm category that enables software applications to predict
responses more accurately and specifically without explicitly programming them. Machine learning
is primarily focused on the development of algorithms which are capable of receiving input data as
well as using statistical analysis to predict an output while updating outputs with new data.
Figure 3: AI Perception Action Cycle in Autonomous Cars
ETHICAL AI
[ CITATION Eur19 \l 1033 ]
Trustworthy AI should comply with all applicable legislation and regulations and a set of
requirements; specific lists of evaluations are intended to help verify the application of each of the
main requirements.
Robust and Safety: Dependable AI requires safe, reliable and robust algorithms that address
mistakes or inconsistencies throughout all the life cycle phases of the AI systems.
Privacy and data governance: Citizens should have full control over their own personal data,
whereas their data should not be used for harm or discrimination against them.
Transparency: Tractability should be guaranteed for AI systems.
Diversity, non - discrimination and fairness: AI systems should consider and guarantee accessibility
and the full range of human capabilities, skills and requirements.
Societal and environmental well-being: AI systems should be used to promote positive social
change and improve environmental sustainability.
Accountability: Mechanisms should be placed to ensure accountability and responsibility for AI
systems and their products.
STANDARDS
[ CITATION Ant18 \l 1033 ]
In 2017, International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and International Organization for
Standardization (ISO) became the first international standards development organizations (SDOs) to
set up a joint committee (ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 42) which will carry out standardization activities for
artificial intelligence.
Following the opening meeting in Beijing this April, Wael William Diab, Chairman of SC 42. In the
area of information and communication technologies (ICT), Diab is a business and technology
strategist with 875 patents. At present he is Huawei's senior director.

intelligent robots. There is are a lot of ways of achieving AI which is why some guidelines should
be put. Ethical constraints to comply with all the regulations. Standards are also put to govern the
future of AI.

Artificial intelligence (AI) offers much promise for improving healthcare. However, it runs the looming risk of causing individual and societal harms; for instance, exacerbating inequalities amongst minority groups, or enabling compromises in the confidentiality of patients’ sensitive data. As such, there is an expanding, unmet need for ensuring AI for healthcare is developed in concordance with human values and ethics. Augmenting “principle-based” guidance that highlight adherence to ethical ideals (without necessarily offering translation into actionable practices), we offer a solution-based framework for operationalising ethics in AI for healthcare. Our framework is built from a scoping review of existing solutions of ethical AI guidelines, frameworks and technical solutions to address human values such as self-direction in healthcare. Our view spans the entire length of the AI lifecycle: data management, model development, deployment and monitoring. Our focus in this paper is to collate actionable solutions (whether technical or non-technical in nature), which can be steps that enable and empower developers in their daily practice to ensuring ethical practices in the broader picture. Our framework is intended to be adopted by AI developers, with recommendations that are accessible and driven by the existing literature. We endorse the recognised need for ‘ethical AI checklists’ co-designed with health AI practitioners, which could further operationalise the technical solutions we have collated. Since the risks to health and wellbeing are so large, we believe a proactive approach is necessary for ensuring human values and ethics are appropriately respected in AI for healthcare.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has been broadly used for a long time, but in terms of hearing aids it only came into the limelight in 2004. Although at that time AI was yet to be incorporated into a hearing aid, with improvement in technology, slowly AI began to be introduced. AI included trainable hearing aids, own voice processing, brain-controlled hearing aids, strategies to improve speech perception in noise, and wind noise management in both hearing aids and cochlear implants. This short review discusses these AI technologies and their utility for the user. Key words: speech perception • artificial intelligence (AI) • hearing aid • cochlear implant (CI) ZASTOSOWANIA SZTUCZNEJ INTELIGENCJI W APARATACH I IMPLANTACH SŁUCHOWYCH-KRÓTKI PRZEGLĄD Streszczenie Od dłuższego czasu sztuczna inteligencja (SI) jest szeroko stosowana, jednak w odniesieniu do aparatów słuchowych znalazła się w centrum zainteresowania dopiero po roku 2004. Chociaż w tamtym czasie SI nie była jeszcze wbudowywana w aparaty słuchowe, w miarę rozwoju techno-logii zaczęło się to powoli zmieniać. SI zaczęto stosować w: samouczących się aparatach słuchowych, do przetwarzania własnego głosu, w apara-tach słuchowych kontrolowanych mózgiem, do poprawy percepcji mowy w hałasie i kontroli szumu wiatru, zarówno w aparatach słuchowych, jak i implantach ślimakowych.

Libraries as social spaces are bound to evolve based on a society’s level of civilisation and information media. This paper argues that the emergence of smart libraries have changed the paradigms of library by acknowledging the potential benefits and transformation smart library brings to library operations and services. It notes that analytical and computational thinking, data literacy, information literacy, social intelligence, programs and project management, cross-cultural competency, transliteracy, transdisciplinary, design thinking and mindset, virtual collaboration and cognitive load management are skills to be possessed by smart librarians. It highlights cloud computing, big data, 3D printing, IoT, Artificial Intelligence, RFID, drones etc., as the emerging technologies used for smart libraries and further discusses smart services, smart people, smart places and smart governance as the dimensions of smart library. Revelations are further made that smart libraries aid space saving, expansion of library working hours and services and promotes access to information, while remarks are made that lack of technological know-how, technophobia, data privacy and security, etc., are the challenges of smart library. It concludes that the emergence of smart library have facilitated the redefinition of library services and operations and recommends amongst others that librarians should continuously update their skills so that they can meet up with competitions that may arise from the challenges of globalisation of the information landscape.
... Artificial intelligence (AI) is based on the development of algorithms and computer programs to replace human intelligence to carry out tasks such as problem-solving, reasoning, languageunderstanding and analysis and general learning (Saleh, 2019).

The Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) is the progressive automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial processes using modern intelligent technologies. Large-scale machine-to-machine communication (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT) will be integrated to increase automation, improve communication, monitor production itself, and develop intelligent machines that can analyze and diagnose problems without the need for human intervention. The phrase "Fourth Industrial Revolution" was introduced by a team of scientists who developed a high-tech strategy for the German government. The Fourth Industrial brings a world of opportunities for organizations of all sizes to adopt technologies not only to survive, but thrive. This will fundamentally transform the global system of labor production, forcing job-seekers to develop new skills needed to adapt to automation. New technologies will make assets more durable and resilient, and data analysis will change the way they are managed. Physical products and services are enhanced by digital skills, thereby increasing their value. Consumers and businesses will be the customers at the epicenter of the economy, improving the way customers are served. Although big data is unrivalled in value and has propelled the industry 40% faster than any other emerging technology, its distributed structure presents a number of challenges. Security, data protection, access control and data storage. As Cyber Security increasingly becomes part of the Socio Cyber fabric, the need of a 360-degree view in terms of Mental Health is now a social imperative. What does this mean in the real world, where we all live, work and play?

Emerging technologies of the 21st century are able to grab the attention of learners, develop motivation, and provide opportunities for collaboration. These technologies offer the opportunity to promote students' learning by providing a safe and controlled environment through simulation that allows them to make mistakes and improve learning. These technologies have the potential to overcome the barrier of time and distance and, therefore, are able to facilitate inclusion. Disabled children can also be benefited by integrating these technologies in teaching learning process. Teachers' attitudes and institutional perspectives will play a central role in successful integration of emerging technologies in teaching learning process. Sense of fear of replacement in teachers due to use of automation in education is seen as a limitation of these technologies. Cost effectiveness is another hindrance to it. Continuous update in the field of technology in education and teachers' training are supposed to go hand in hand to successfully utilize the technology in making the teaching learning process successful.

This research focuses on the Business to Customer Model for Supply Chain (B2C SC) which covers that of a retailer offering electronic goods to consumers as well as customer retention and feedback sentiment in the B2C SC domain. Solving a customer retention problem for the customer to have faster demand requests and better responses to their queries and analyzing customer feedback to promote better services and product delivery is crucial. Sometimes, customer service representatives don't have immediate answers and they must transfer the customer to another person. That's how they serve multiple customers, and it is fair enough to take a long resolution time to resolve the customer service tickets. However, the problem identified in this research is customer retention with feedback sentiment. We studied research papers on customer retention using machine learning conversation agents and to the best of our knowledge, we couldn't find researches that solve both customer retention with feedback sentiment using fuzzy search classifier, rule-based approach, and Vadar Library. In this research, the B2C SCM covered the fulfillment of orders and the retailer has to manage stock levels in warehouses. When an item in stock falls below a certain threshold, the retailer restocks from the relevant manufacturer's inventory. The system business rules were created using Transact SQL Procedure and the fuzzy classifier function was written as a user-defined Function in Microsoft SQL Server 2019. C# written in Dynamic Link Library was used to call the procedure and fuzzy function methods from the Microsoft SQL Server and ASP.NET was used to design the user interface for the users of the system.
