There are 10 widely recognized disruptive innovations and technologies in which Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Robotics, Intelligent Manufacturing and Digital Economy are included. As the society facing the reality of aging and the industry encountered increased salary/wage levels as well as lack of skilled workers, the need of robots and manufacturing automation enhanced by Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) is obvious. Amazon and Google are investing in AIoT and intelligent robotics technology. Others are likely to follow, further to stimulate investment and innovation.
Artificial Intelligence becomes important core technology of soft power in terms of global technological development, which has a wide spectrum of applications including robot integrated manufacturing automation, industrial cyber-physical systems (iCPS), internet of things, etc. The aforementioned issues, challenges and opportunities will be the focus of this presentation including some exemplary best practices and research results with video demo from NTU iCeiRA Lab.
