Control VS artificial intelligence?

In robotics, it all boils down to making the hardware(in essence, the actuator) perform the desired action. The basics of control systems tell us that the transfer function decides the relationship ...

Why is behavior-based robotics not as popular as deep learning or reinforcement learning?

I have not seen that many people working on behavior-based robotics. I am not sure even if Rodney Brooks still works on the subject. Deep Learning: the approach is good for problems without a model. ...

Why is behavior-based robotics not as popular as deep learning or reinforcement learning?

Deep Learning and behavior based robotics as well were developed as the opposite to something which was common before. In the 1980s, Brooks developed the subsumption architecture as an alternative to ...
