[Tutor] multi processes or threads?

I'm not sure which direction to go.  I need to be able to run multiple
?processes? ?threads? (not sure which) concurrently.  I'm working on AI for
a robot and because I'm not sure what direction to go I'll use the term
"thread" to illustrate my question, realizing threads may not be what I'm
looking for.  The bot would have several "threads" running concurrently so
as to be aware of it's state, such as a vision thread, an object and face
recognition thread, a chat thread, a command and control thread, a nav
thread, you get the idea.  In order to do this in python, should I be
looking at threads, multiprocessing, something else or is this not
practicable in python?
