Robots learn from past experiences, make educated guesses, and decide the best sequence of events to complete a task. While humans do this, too, but these advanced robotics have been built with state-of-the-art gear that allows them to decide the best strategy within seconds. Unlike humans, they keep getting better at it. For over half a century, microchips have been doubling in power (while staying the same size) every couple years, a concept known as Moore's Law.
