Mitsubishi Electric, which is carrying out studies beyond age in the field of robotics and developing robots capable of cooperating with humans, raises the question of whether the robot can be charged with mind and consciousness at the future in light of its proprietary MAISART technology.
Robots, which are essential in the production process of factories, are playing an increasingly important role in industry with the speed and convenience they offer and are becoming ordinary labor. Mitsubishi Electric, which stands out for its cutting-edge technological solutions in many different sectors from home to space, is accelerating its work in robotics, which it began in the 1980s, and developing robots capable of working in a sensitive, fast, narrow space and cooperate with people at the same time. Calling attention to the need to look at AI-powered robots from a different perspective, which come into such close contact with humans, Mitsubishi Electric brings up an interesting topic at this point. Tolga Bizel, head of the product management and marketing unit of Mitsubishi Electric Factory Automation Systems, gave information and made predictions about Mitsubishi Electric’s proprietary artificial intelligence algorithm, MAISART technology, which resembles to human behavior and thoughts.
Investments in robots, which will work in cooperation with people on production lines, are expected to grow much faster in Turkey, as in the world, in the near future. Robots will be able to produce in many areas, including human needs, in Turkey and neighboring markets, which is a country open to new market opportunities due to its geopolitical location. Well, in the new world order where robots and humans are so closely linked, will the robots that create wonders with their artificial intelligence be able to charge the mind and consciousness in the future? Tech giant Mitsubishi Electric, which is drawing attention with its age-old work in robotics, brings an important issue to the agenda by looking at robots from a different perspective.
Robots are now faster, more precise and intuitive
Speaking about the benefits of robots with artificial intelligence algorithms in production, Tolga Bizel, Head of Product Management and Marketing Unit of Mitsubishi Electric Factory Automation Systems, shared the following: “As Mitsubishi Electric , we will be able to work in a sensitive, fast and narrow environment. field by accelerating our work in robotics that we started in the 1980s and we are also developing robots capable of collaborating with humans. We are participating in numerous studies with our eF @ ctory digital factory concept, which responds to Industry 4.0, and our proprietary AI brand MAISART (Mitsubishi Electric’s AI creates the state of the art in technology), which allows companies to get the maximum benefits from artificial intelligence. With the new generation of collaborative robots that we have developed with artificial intelligence, we enable companies to set up their robotic systems quickly, intuitively and affordably, and to respond flexibly to business environments and social needs in rapid evolution. Robots can now perform more delicate tasks that could be done by hand, such as installing lamps or setting up an audio system, while previously only replacing the body of a vehicle, for example. Robots have gone from simple, crude work to increasingly complex and refined work. In the near future, the biggest change expected from robots will be in the area of motion technology. Robots with artificial intelligence algorithms will need to change the location of the product, to operate with precision, precision and flexibility. “
“The learning time of our robots has gone from 5 hours to 1 hour”
Stating that they have brought together the special artificial intelligence technology of Mitsubishi Electric, which includes compact artificial intelligence, a machine-designed deep learning algorithm and extra efficient intelligent learning applications, under one roof under the “MAISART” brand, said Bizel; “As many developments in robotics, from voice control to the application of 3D images, gain momentum, one of the most important applications is the development of robotic systems with intelligence. artificial. Mitsubishi Electric ensures that companies get the most out of artificial intelligence with its proprietary MAISART technology. With this technology, it is possible to avoid unexpected malfunctions and to warn users in advance of parts that may cause a malfunction. Using a machine learning algorithm, this technology creates a model for the transition of the production machine between different operational states after analyzing the sensor data. In this way, in order to increase productivity in factories and facilities, machine anomalies that indicate unexpected situations in machines are detected quickly and accurately. Our robots work faster with the power sensor and without damaging the system compared to conventional systems; As he learns, he gradually improves his performance. The learning time of our robots has also decreased from 5 hours to 1-2 hours ”.
AI-powered robots and humans will work together
Stating that as Mitsubishi Electric, they aim to adopt robotic technology integrated with automation in Turkey, Bizel continued as follows: “Until today, robots that usually work alone will appear as robots. humanoids working with humans in the next period. Contrary to popular belief, it can be said that digitization will not lead to unemployment, but will allow people to move from labor intensive to mental work. With the digital transformation, our expectation of a new organizational structure and a new establishment in companies is gaining weight. To give an example at this point; In our transformation experience which started at our Kani factory in Japan in 2003, we have moved from line production to cell production and high tech system equipped with digital transformation. Here, too, we have seen that the job descriptions of many employees will change dramatically. Robots, which are vital in the production process of factories, are becoming a very mainstream workforce taking on more roles in the industry with the speed and convenience they offer. In the future, factories where robots will work in cooperation with humans await us. With the power that MAISART technology gives us, we believe that investments in robots that will work with people on production lines in Turkey will progress faster from now on and we continue to work for this. “
“The soul that we add to our robots is MAISART technology”
Tolga Bizel, who said that people in Japan are supposed to have souls in addition to natural resources and nature, as well as inanimate beings, supplemented her remarks as follows: “In studies at Japanese universities where a system tactile and painful nervous has been placed on the robot to make it feel pain, the robots will be able to understand the touch and pain of others. You are looking for the answer to the question. Whether it is possible for robots to sense, whether or not empathy and morality can emerge, this seems to be discussed in the coming period. Will it be possible to build a symbiotic society with artificially intelligent robots, and will a robot capable of feeling pain become an important part of this society? Can such robots provide physical and emotional assistance to people? questions are asked. As Mitsubishi Electric, we can say that; The soul that we add to our robots is MAISART technology, our registered trademark of artificial intelligence. In the future, our robots will have a kind of mind that includes artificial and human intelligence technologies, and that mind will be able to act together. “
