Elon Musk Revealed About Tesla Robot Under Developing Humanoid Robot:
This Thursday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed the company’s humanoid Tesla robot called Tesla Bot that runs on the same AI technology used in Tesla’s electronic vehicles. The functioning of the Tesla Bot is not displayed in the presentation, but while Musk’s demo, a weird dance performance steals the show with a Tesla Bot’s alike costume.
What Is A Tesla Bot, And Why Is It Used?
At the end of Musk’s demo on Tesla’s AI Day presentation, he revealed this Tesla Bot came on the screen after a few slides of PowerPoint. The new Tesla Bot comes with a 5ft-8inch height and weighs around 125 pounds after installing all the internal components built with “lightweight materials”. Tesla vehicle’s autopilot cameras are placed inside the head of the Tesla Bot to sense the surroundings and display that information on the screen that is pre-installed in the vehicle, these whole operations will be operated by a Full Self-Driving computer developed by Tesla.
Musk said, “It’s intended to be friendly and navigate through a world built for humans.” After one and half hours of presentation about Tesla’s AI development and updates, that include the Dojo supercomputer’s ability to upgrade the operating system in the cars to navigate through streets without human interference. Musk said, “It makes sense to put that onto the humanoid form.”
The first three slides of the presentation are about the specifications of the Tesla Bot, Musk stated we can give any commands to this humanoid’s AI. But once he opposed the development of artificial intelligence by stating, “AI is the biggest risk we face as a civilization” now, he is developing his EV’s operating system and Tesla’s humanoid that completely works on artificial intelligence. During the interacting session a question from the audience “should we worried about AI”, Musk replied, “What we’re trying to do here at Tesla is to make useful AI that people love and unequivocally good.”
In the presentation, one of the slide shows that Tesla Bot will remove the “dangerous, repetitive, boring tasks,” followed by Musk’s example, the robot can be assigned a task like, “go to the store and get the following groceries.” These kinds of assignments are not dangerous but you might find them boring because of continuous repetitions.
For now, we can’t decide what will be the future of this humanoid robot, it is not even clear about the functionality and the actual application of the Tesla bot. The only information available is PowerPoint slides that are demonstrated by Elon Musk. But, the reality is different.
