Few things evolve and move forward as quickly as today’s (and tomorrow’s) technology. Startups are at the forefront of this change, and the impact of these smaller and innovation-focused companies is at its most significant. Cutting-edge AI and robotics technologies transform industries with sometimes radical solutions that will shape our lives and work.
In the field of elderly care, for example, InGen Dynamics is utilizing AI, robotics, and automation technology to provide more effective and personalized support for later generations. Data and analytics create tailored treatment and supervision plans that meet individual needs. This improves the quality of attention and lessens the burden on caregivers and healthcare professionals.
In manufacturing, AI and robotics are used by companies such as Yuanda Robotics, which builds robotic arms that work seamlessly with humans in the manufacturing environment.
In the financial sector, AI is used by startups such as Zest to improve the accuracy and speed of underwriting and credit scoring, making money management more accessible to a broader range of customers.
Blue River Technology is another startup reaping AI’s potential, quite literally. By identifying and spraying individual plants in a field, their robots can drastically reduce the environmental impact of herbicide use, increasing crop yields and saving farmers money.
Finally, Cogniac is developing computer vision platforms. Automatic visual inspection and grading of industrial products, such as pipes and tubing, bring new levels of efficiency and makes the process faster and more accurate than ever. Their AI system can identify and classify defects with high accuracy and speed, reducing the need for manual inspection. Many industrial manufacturing companies have adopted the technology, broadening the upside effect and cost savings.
With their innovative use of AI and robotics, these are examples of startups playing a critical role in shaping the future of applied technology. They are reshaping their respective industries and paving the way for AI and robotics to solve real-world problems with game-changing solutions. As these technologies advance, we can expect improvements to our lives we never imagined possible. “Startups are shaping the future by creating new technologies and industries and disrupting existing ones. They are the engines of economic growth and job creation. They are driving innovation and progress in fields like artificial intelligence, robotics, and biotechnology,” said Eric Ries, entrepreneur and author of “The Lean Startup.”
Put simply, these smaller, more agile companies are the future shapers. Still, Business and industry leaders beware, innovation moves quickly, and understanding its implications is a constant challenge. One consistent measure of the potential of AI and robotics is to pay close attention to the startups in this space. Most of the time, they lead the way.
