SLAM or Simultaneous Localisation And Mapping is a pathfinding AI technique for robotics. It involves the robot building up a map of the area it travels, using onboard sensor systems. At the same time, the robot is tracking its position, either by GPS, or by triangulation with fixed transceiver points in the area.

Drone Hacking Shows System Vulnerabilities
A research effort from a University of Texas at Austin has shown the real problems incurred when your drone AI relies near solely on a single sense to the exclusion of all others. In this case, GPS overriding machine vision means that if the GPS is hacked, the drone sees itself slam into a structure but does nothing about it.

Intelligent, Sensitive Surgical Drill
Boring small holes in the head is a common occurrence for surgeons working on delicate surgical procedures for the senses. Dentists drilling teeth, surgeons drilling into the nose, ear, or drilling holes into the head. Delicate, tiny movements where one slip could slam the drill into soft tissue, rending arteries rearing ligaments, driving shards of bone into the brain.
