Elon Musk says Tesla designing AI-driven humanoid robot

Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, stated on Thursday at Tesla’s AI Day in California that the company will construct a humanoid robot named Tesla Bot.

The humanoid robot will be capable of performing hazardous, tedious, or monotonous tasks that humans dislike. “It should be able to do things like, you know, go to the shop and bring me the following groceries,” Musk said. The robot, code-named “Optimus,” is equipped with the same CPUs and sensors used in Tesla’s self-driving automobiles. The robot’s prototype, which stands roughly 5’8″ tall, weighs 125 pounds, and is composed of lightweight materials, is expected to be released next year.

When Musk revealed Tesla Bot, a mannequin version of the humanoid robot that wasn’t functional appeared on the stage.

Musk remarked, “In the future, the nature of employment will be…” when asked about the future of work “Physical labour will essentially be a choice in the future. You can do it if you want to, but you won’t have to.”

According to Musk, the Tesla Bot is “designed to be pleasant and navigate around a world built for humans.”

Experts, on the other hand, disagree regarding the early launch of a humanoid robot capable of performing a wide range of physical tasks. According to Raj Rajkumar, professor of electrical and computer engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, “it will take considerably more than 10 years before a humanoid bot from any company on the earth can go to the shop and fetch groceries for you.”

Tesla’s AI Day included some of the latest artificial intelligence and supercomputer technologies. Tesla presented in-house built chips for Dojo, the company’s high-speed computer, which will be operational next year. ‘Design a speedy training computer,’ Musk had asked his staff.
