Humanoid robots

Humanoid robots are robots that have a body structure similar to that of a human, including a head, torso, two arms, and two legs. They are designed to mimic human behavior and movements and can perform tasks typically associated with human activities such as walking, running, grasping, and manipulating objects. Humanoid robots are used in various fields such as entertainment, education, research, and industry. They can be used in interactive performances, as museum guides, in search and rescue operations, and for tasks that require human-like dexterity, such as assembling complex machinery. Humanoid robots are typically controlled by a computer program and are equipped with sensors, cameras, and actuators that allow them to perceive and interact with the environment. They are also able to process and interpret data using machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms.
