Bring a new degree of interconnectivity to your world by building your own intelligent robots
- Leverage fundamentals of AI and robotics
- Work through use cases to implement various machine learning algorithms
- Explore Natural Language Processing (NLP) concepts for efficient decision making in robots
Artificial Intelligence for Robotics starts with an introduction to Robot Operating Systems (ROS), Python, robotic fundamentals, and the software and tools that are required to start out with robotics. You will learn robotics concepts that will be useful for making decisions, along with basic navigation skills.
As you make your way through the chapters, you will learn about object recognition and genetic algorithms, which will teach your robot to identify and pick up an irregular object. With plenty of use cases throughout, you will explore natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning techniques to further enhance your robot. In the concluding chapters, you will learn about path planning and goal-oriented programming, which will help your robot prioritize tasks.
By the end of this book, you will have learned to give your robot an artificial personality using simulated intelligence.
