How to control a Robot with an AI program on a computer?

Hi guys, so I have this AI program on Matlab and python on my computer. There is a micro controller development board that I have in a robotic system. I want to hook up the two so that one processes the information (the computer) and tells the other to execute it with some instructions (the micro controller). How can I bridge this gap, how can I do this?

Thank you

Simply send instructions and data between the two, either via RS232 (if wired) or any of the many radio systems available - the HC-12 is a good choice, as it's effectively a wireless RS232 connection.

Will this work with any of the Arduino boards? and other boards like teensy?

Of course, it just needs a serial port (either hardware or software).
Wow is it that simple? but I need two Arduino boards for it. one transfers and other receives it. But I have my program on another application, which is Matlab/python then how can I send that info to the Arduino?

Serial port! - haven't you heard that computers used to have serial ports?, and still do via FDTI USB adaptors.
