Robotics, Group Decision Making, Collaborative Systems, and AI Support
Chapter 2 briefly introduced robotics, an early and practical application of concepts developed in AI. In this chapter 10, we present a number of applications of robots in industrial as well as personal settings. Besides learning about the already deployed and emerging applications, we identify the general components of a robot. In the spirit of managerial considerations, we also discuss the impact of robotics on jobs as well as related legal issues.The focus in this chapter is on physical robots, not just software-driven applications of AI.
In chapter11, several topics related to group decision support and collaboration were covered. People work together, and groups (or teams) make many of the complex decisions in organizations. The increase in organizational decision-making complexity drives the need for meetings and group work. Supporting group work in which team members may be in different locations and working at different times emphasizes the important aspects of communications, computer-mediated collaboration, and workplace methodologies. Group support is a critical aspect of decision support systems (DSS). Effective computer-supported group support systems have evolved to increase gains and decrease losses in task performance and underlying processes. New tools and methodology are used to support teamwork. These include collective intelligence, crowdsourcing, and different types of AI. Finally, human–machine and machine–machine collaboration are increasing the power of collaboration and problem solving.
