Embodied Artificial Intelligence and Robotic Technologies
Artificial intelligence (AI) is an important technology that supports daily social life and economic activities. It contributes greatly to the sustainable growth of Japan’s economy and solves various social problems. In recent years, AI has attracted attention as a key for growth in developed countries such as Europe and the United States and developing countries such as China and India. The attention has been focused mainly on developing new artificial intelligence information communication technology (ICT) and robot technology (RT). Although recently developed AI technology certainly excels in extracting certain patterns, there are many limitations in robotic applications. Most AI models are overly dependent on big data, lack a self-idea function, and are complicated. In this project, rather than merely developing next-generation artificial intelligence technology in robots, we aim to develop a new concept of general-purpose intelligence cognition technology called “Embodied AI”.
