  • Robot Land - Robot Land is a proposed city for robotics research, development, testing and production in South Korea.
  • robot tax - Robot tax is a proposition that employers who replace employees with automated workers be required to pay a tax and the funds allocated to assist the displaced workforce.
  • robotic personality - Robotic personality is an advanced aspect of artificial intelligence (AI) in which smart machines display idiosyncratic human behavior.
  • robotic surgery (robot-assisted surgery) - Robotic surgery is the use of computer technologies working in conjunction with robot systems to perform medical procedures.
  • robotics - Robotics is a branch of engineering that involves the conception, design, manufacture, and operation of robots.
  • robotics quotient - Robotics quotient (RQ) is a way of scoring humans’ ability to work effectively with robots, just as intelligence quotient (IQ) tests provide a score that helps gauge human cognitive abilities.
  • self-driving car (autonomous car or driverless car) - A self-driving car (sometimes called an autonomous car or driverless car) is a vehicle that uses a combination of sensors, cameras, radar and artificial intelligence (AI) to travel between destinations without a human operator.
  • sensor - A sensor is a device that detects and responds to some type of input from the physical environment.
  • servo (servomechanism) - A servo or servomechanism is an electromagnetic device that converts electricity into precise controlled motion by use of negative feedback mechanisms.
  • Singularity (the) - The Singularity is the hypothetical future creation of superintelligent machines.
  • smart machines - A smart machine is a device embedded with machine-to-machine (M2M) and/or cognitive computing technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning or deep learning, all of which it uses to reason, problem-solve, make decisions and even, ultimately, take action.
  • smart robot - A smart robot is an artificial intelligence (AI) system that can learn from its environment and its experience and build on its capabilities based on that knowledge.
  • social robot - A social robot is an artificial intelligence (AI) system that is designed to interact with humans and other robots.
  • software robot - A software robot is an AI (artificial intelligence) system that runs on a host device rather than existing as a standalone machine.
  • software robotics - Software robotics is the use of bot programs to automate computer tasks normally performed by people.
  • SpaceX - Space Exploration Technologies Corp.
  • spambot - A spambot is a program designed to collect, or harvest, e-mail addresses from the Internet in order to build mailing lists for sending unsolicited e-mail, also known as spam.
  • supervised learning - Supervised learning is an approach to creating artificial intelligence, where the program is given labeled input data and the expected output results.
  • swarm intelligence - Swarm intelligence is the study of decentralized, self-organized systems that move quickly in a coordinated manner.
  • swarm robotics - Swarm robotics is the use of numerous, autonomous robotics to accomplish a task.
  • synthetic intelligence (SI) - Synthetic intelligence (SI) recognizes that although the capacity for software to reason may be manufactured, it is nonetheless real intelligence and not just an imitation of how human beings acquire and apply knowledge and skill.
  • telepresence robot - A telepresence robot is a remote-controlled, wheeled device that has wireless internet connectivity.
  • Turing Test - A Turing Test is a method of inquiry in artificial intelligence (AI) for determining whether or not a computer is capable of thinking like a human being.
  • ubiquitous robotics - Ubiquitous robotics is the design and deployment of robots in smart network environments in which everything is interconnected.
  • uncanny valley - The uncanny valley is a common unsettling feeling people experience where androids (humanoid robots) and audio/visual simulations closely resemble humans in many respects but are not quite realistic.
  • underwater ROV (underwater remotely operated vehicle) - An underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) is a mobile robot designed for aquatic work environments.
  • universal basic income (UBI) - Universal basic income (UBI) is a model for providing all citizens of a country or other geographic area with a given sum of money, regardless of their income, resources or employment status.
  • unsupervised learning - Unsupervised learning refers to the use of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to identify patterns in data sets containing data points that are neither classified nor labeled.
  • vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft - A vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft is a vehicle that can depart, hover and land vertically.
  • virtual assistant (AI assistant) - A virtual assistant is an application program that can understand natural human language, speak natural language and complete electronic tasks for the end user.
  • VR locomotion (virtual reality locomotion) - VR locomotion is technology that enables movement from one place to another (locomotion) within a virtual reality environment.
  • wearable robot - A wearable robot is a machine that facilitates telepresence, a sophisticated form of interactive remote control.
