THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AUTOMATONS AND ROBOTS

Many  years ago people tried to build mechanical objects that looked like human beings or animals,these mechanical objects are called  “Automatons” .These automatons can only perform a single set of actions like walking, lifting the objects, running etc.They were manufactured in ancient times also.They cant change their actions but robots can.

The emperor Theophilos palace for example, had “lions made either of bronze or wood covered with gold, which struck in the ground with their tails and roared with open mouth and quivering tongue”.Today’s robots are made from artificial intelligence and can perform many tasks, they do not have fixed set of actions , they are controlled by human being’s and can chnge their actions but automatons cannot.halo_5_soldiers_weapons_automaton_104755_1920x1080.jpg
