The origin of robots and its modern concepts

The robots we know today are machines built with a mind of their own - the artificial intelligence. By definition, they are machines programmed to make their own decisions in a given scenario.

Why there are only a few robotics startups when there are many programming APIs for robotics?

Running a hardware business is quite hard anywhere and more so in India. Regulations in multiple industries apply to robotics companies — with required compliance in data, telecommunication, industrial machines and so on.
