Records Management in the Fourth Industrial Revolution: Challenges and the Way Forward
Robotics is the intersection of science, engineering and technology that produces machines, called robots, that substitute for (or replicate) human actions. Robotics is a branch of engineering that involves the conception, design, manufacture, and operation of robots. It resembles characteristics of a robot, especially in being stiff or unemotional. On the other hand, a robot is a machine designed to execute one or more tasks automatically with speed and precision. Expressly, robotics is the study of robots; while robots are machines that can be used to do jobs. Some robots can do work by themselves. Other robots must always have a person telling them what to do.
