Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) rarely has a physical format but it penetrates into wide segments of our daily lives, with huge implications for a wide range of industries, such as industrial automation, services, transportation and wellness. Any robotics without A.I. is just a tool; only solutions embedded with A.I. would become intelligent, just as human with a brain has the ability to self-learn and even learn from each other.
