Many emerging robotics applications require the use of multiple collaborating robots to operate under human supervision. To be useful in such applications, robots will need to act as smart assistants by programming themselves, efficiently learning from the observed performance, safely operating in the presence of uncertainty, appropriately calling for help during the execution of challenging tasks, and effectively communicating with humans. This panel discussion will provide an overview of the advances in artificial intelligence that are being used to enable robots to automatically make decisions to meet the aforementioned requirements. As smart manufacturing represents a leap forward from traditional automation to fully connected and flexible systems the question that will be asked and answered is: How ready is the industry to embrace the challenges and opportunities of this new era and what do they need to do embrace the potential of these technologies?
