Technology can be the
etc. or it can be
embedded in machines,
computers, devices and
factories, which can be
operated by individuals
Smart machines are embedded with cognitive computing ability
which uses artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to
sense, learn, reason and interact with people in different ways.
These machines can think and solve problem accurately and
precisely, in order to provide the desired output.
These are the systems that use machine learning to perform work
traditionally conducted by humans in an effort to boost efficiency
What makes a machine smart?
avoid & correct
interact with other
machines & systems
learn & anticipate
Back office processes

Evolution of Smart Machines
How are they coming?
Artificial Intelligence : Prerequisite
AI is making our computers and robots smarter everyday.
o Cognitive Computing :
Simulation of human thought processes in a computerized model.
It handles human kinds of problems; process of acquiring knowledge and understanding
through thought, experience, and the senses
o Machine learning :.
Provides computers with the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed.
that can learn from data
Human Computer Interaction
Humanoid Robot (e.g : Actroid)
Smart Home appliances like:
Smart Washing Machine
98% of controls are with your smart phone
Smart shoe is a smart technology footwear.
Introduced in Hyderabad, India in July 2014
connected to a smartphone application that uses Google maps
tell users when and where to turn to reach their destination.
FRIEND - assist the elderly and disabled with common tasks.
Handy 1- rehabilitation robot; to enable people with severe disability
to gain/regain independence in important daily living activities such
as: eating, drinking, washing, shaving, teeth cleaning and applying
Designed to imitate human movement, behavior, and
sense, actuate, plan, control, and execute activities
ASIMO from Honda QRIO from Sony
ACTROID from Kokoro Co. and Advanced Media
Perform the tasks immediately and with high accuracy
Smart Machines will handle tasks that previously required human
Improved quality and productivity
Intelligent robots will help to reduce the labor force needed, increasing
the company's profit
Many challenging questions are arising:
Will Smart machines take your job? :Jobs will be in threat
Robot Insurrection: Kill All Humans
Humans May Prefer Robot Lovers
Leading to destruction or disruption due to competition
Future of Smart Machines
Through 2025 Smart Machines era will blossom
These technologies are generally at an early stage of development, so it
will be necessary to consider the market at least as far out as 2024 to
obtain meaningful results.
The future sales of key enabling technologies for the next generation of
smart machines , such as :
• Virtual reality assistants(e.g.Siri)
• Intelligent Agents(e.g automated online assistants
• Expert systems(e.g. Medical decision support systems)
• Autonomous robots(including self-driving vehicles)
• Purpose built smart machines (such as neural computers)
