Imagine a world with billions of robots...
It is not yet, but coming tomorrow...
Explaining our idea
This web site is home of 'ARS-Robo' project and a product line of ARS Technologies - about a robot with a basic artificial intelligence
It is a house companion robot, something like a pet which does not
need food, but has a voice and some limited intelligence.
Pretty soon one or more of this type of robots will be present in most
of the homes of humans.
Devices like Amazon's 'echo' and Google's 'speaker' are entering the
market and essentially are 'dumb' devices which get their 'intelligence'
from the 'cloud'.
'ARS-Robo' device is fundamentally different - designed to think for
itself, able to operate with limited or no connection to the 'cloud' or
The state of art in Machine learning (ML) throws enormous computing
resources to achieve a goal, using generic algorithms with multiple
stages, without a time limit for getting results.
'ARS-Robo' has conceptually different ML - intending to employ smart
algorithms running on limited computing resources, getting results and
making decisions in real time.
What prompted us to work on our idea?
Lots of people leave alone, and/or in some extent of social isolation.
Most of the social interactions today are remote, virtual, done through
text messages or image files exchange.
Speaker devices are starting to shape the future robotics market with
cloud connected devices.
There is a need to have intelligent devices, which can operate stand
alone, and this will represent another type of devices in the future
Machine learning (ML) will be essential part of future robot devices.
Currently the area is shaped by a way of thinking where one can use
unlimited computing power, as long as it takes in order to analyze or
solve an issue.
While this way may be good for research, it is not good for a stand
alone robotic device which has relatively limited processing power and
has to make a quick decision - left or right, forward or backward, this
thing or that thing...
Instead of multiple runs over generic algorithms, a stand alone robot
device has to use limited runs over smart algorithms.
