Robots used to be mere futuristic science fiction creations. Fast forward to today, robots pervade our daily lives, as well as perform more innovative work not unlike the humanoids we see in movies. You’ve probably heard of the term Robotics, which deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots.
Robots can be as mundane as performing repetitive tasks or as exciting as interactively responding to new information to increase their capabilities and functions. Think of a voice-bot like Alexa by Amazon, which has the ability to learn new skills through its sound interface.
Branches of science involved in Robotics include mechanical, electronic, software and information engineering as well as computer science.
