Artificial Intelligence (AI) is about creating algorithms to perform tasks in a way that we believe is intelligent. Robotics is about creating algorithms to make robots perform such tasks.

Modern AI & Robotics algorithms play games (e.g. chess), prove theorems (e.g. verification), discover patterns in data (e.g. explanations), analyze complex sequences (e.g. DNA), make 'life or death' decisions (e.g. matching organs to patients), optimize distributions (e.g. food, refugees, housings), drive cars (e.g. Tesla), play soccer and so on.
