Overview/Description

Robots can utilize machine learning, deep learning, reinforcement learning, as well as probabilistic techniques to achieve intelligent behavior. This application of AI to robotic systems is found in the automotive, healthcare, logistics, and military industries. With increasing computing power and sophistication in small robots, more industry use cases are likely to emerge, making AI development for robotics a useful AI developer skill.

In this course, you'll explore the main concepts, frameworks, and approaches needed to work with robotics and apply AI to robots. You'll examine how AI and robotics are used across multiple industries. You'll learn how to work with commonly used algorithms and strategies to develop simple AI systems that improve the performance of robots. Finally, you'll learn how to control a robot in a simulated environment using deep Q-networks.
