Artificial Intelligence(AI) and robotics are two different fields of computer science and technology and are often interconnected. As the name defines, AI is a computer program capable of achieving a task that requires intelligence. While a robot is an automated machine, which can perform a series of tasks with great accuracy and precision, and mimic human actions.
Everything that we do online from booking a ticket, doing a Google search to opening our Instagram feed has AI lurking in the background. When intertwined with each other, AI acts as the brain while robots are considered as the body.
