Q:  What is the difference between automation and robotics?
A:  The main difference between robotics and automation is that robots are a piece of equipment that can perform a variety of tasks with programming, while automation is a term that is used for special purpose machines or systems that are designed to perform a specific task.

Q:  Are Artificial Intelligence(AI) and robots the same?
A:  An AI is a computer program designed for tasks normally requiring human intelligence (a human's ability to learn), while a robot is a machine that completes complex tasks. An AI could be used to control a robot, but they are very different.
