The concept of Industry 4.0 can be understood as a new way of organizing the production resources.
The ultimate goal is to launch a large number of “Intelligent Factories” capable of adapting to the needs of the market and production processes in a way more effective way, thus making a more efficient allocation of resources.
The concept of “artificial intelligence” was introduced in 1956 to define the possibility of implementing reasoning and self-learning capabilities into robotic system. It is not necessary to go to utopian visions of science fiction to confirm that Industry 4.0, the so-called fourth industrial revolution, has already begun to transform production systems through smart technologies’ platforms.
Examples of applications of Artificial Intelligence
Chatbots are systems capable of interacting with humans
that function as virtual assistants. Surely you know Siri. Chatbots can be used as assistants during purchase processes, for educational projects or as pre-filters to refer queries to human advisors. The uses at our disposal are infinite, increasingly sophisticated and personalized, aiming to recreate human-like communication.

Madrid 10/01/2016. The AMETIC partner companies are organizing the ‘Factory of The Future’ which is expected to be one of the main attractions of the 2nd edition of Global Robot Expo 2017, the great international trade fair of robotics and related technologies, to be held between the 2nd And the 4 of February of 2017 in the Pavilion of the House of Field of Madrid.
Madrid 23/12/2016. Clemens Müller, Head of Clinical Education in Hocoma, will talk about the rehabilitation robotics in his conference at GREX’17.
This is what they work for at the Swiss medtech company Hocoma. With technologies and ideas that look at functional movement therapy from a completely different angle. Because they enable independent exercise and create maximum motivation, because they challenge people to take courage and support their hopes with personal achievements.
Madrid. 29/11/2016. Sethu Vijayakumar, Director of the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics will be in Global Robot Expo giving a keynote about the next generation of interactive robots.
Professor Vijayakumar, who has a PhD (1998) from the Tokyo Institute of Technology, has pioneered the use of large scale machine learning techniques in the real time control of large degree of freedom anthropomorphic robotic systems including the SARCOS and the HONDA ASIMO humanoid robots, KUKA-DLR robot arm and iLIMB prosthetic hand. His latest project (2016) involves a collaboration with NASA Johnson Space Centre on the Valkyrie humanoid robot being prepared for unmanned robotic pre-deployment missions to Mars.
