You might have come across information about robots. A robot is a type of automated system or machine that can perform instructed tasks, with or without human intervention. However, the question arises: why do we need robots? They offer several advantages: Precise work – Faster than humans.

The world is now focused on building more humanoid robots rather than simple robots.
Humanoid robots are specifically designed to mimic human motions and interact with people.
Advantages of humanoid robots include teaching children, assisting the sick or elderly, and performing difficult tasks that humans struggle with. They can also be used to replace humans in various fields, as they are designed to mimic human motions. However, building humanoid robots is currently costly, limiting accessibility.

Here are some developments in humanoid robots around the globe:

Robonaut:

Built at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Texas, its main goal is to assist humans in constructing and exploring space.

Robonaut 2:

 This upgraded version of R1 was the first humanoid robot sent to space. It is currently being tested for simpler tasks at the International Space Station (ISS).

Optimus Robot (Tesla Bot):

 Being developed by Tesla, it is currently being trained to navigate, sense, and perform certain tasks. Its development is aimed at expanding its range of functions.

 

Sophia:

A social humanoid robot developed by Hanson Robotics in Hong Kong. Sophia is capable of exhibiting human characteristics and became the first humanoid robot to receive Saudi Arabian citizenship in 2017. She is also the first Robot Innovation Ambassador for the UNDP (United Nations Development Programme).

 

Ameca:

Developed by Engineered Arts in the UK, Ameca is considered the most advanced humanoid robot designed as a platform for future robotics technologies.

 

Atlas Robots:

 Designed by Boston Dynamics in the US, Atlas robots are intended for search and rescue tasks, as well as providing emergency services in crucial situations.

 

Valkyrie:

Designed at the Johnson Space Center in Texas, NASA’s primary vision for Valkyrie is to develop humanoid robots capable of performing hazardous work in the absence of humans on the lunar and Martian surfaces.

Apptronik Apollo:

 This humanoid robot is being developed by NASA in partnership with Apptronik. It is primarily designed for space travel and carrying out tasks in space that humans cannot easily perform.

Humanoid Robots in India:

Manav:

The first humanoid robot created in India by A-SET Training and Research Institute in Delhi. It can perform human activities such as walking, dancing, speaking with a human voice, and more.

Vyommitra:

A humanoid robot created by ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation), designed to be sent on ISRO’s GAGANYAN Mission to perform various space activities.
Indro: The tallest humanoid robot built in India, designed by Santosh Vasudeo Hulawale. It is being developed to perform various household activities.

The biggest question of the decade is whether AI can replace human intelligence. It depends on how far humans can go in creating an AI robot that could replace them. AI can perform work precisely and faster than humans, but it still lacks certain aspects of human intelligence, such as creativity, problem-solving techniques, emotion-based commands, and better management. Our cognitive abilities and human minds make us unique and distinct from AI. Therefore, for now, we can say that AI can compete with human intelligence and engage in arguments, but it cannot fully replace human intelligence.
