Humanoid ‘Tesla Bot’ likely to launch next year, says Elon Musk

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Elon Musk said he would probably launch a humanoid robot prototype next year, dubbed the “Tesla Bot”, which is designed to do “boring, repetitious and dangerous” work.

The billionaire chief executive of the electric carmaker Tesla said the robot, which would be about 5ft 8in (1.7m) tall and weigh 125 pounds (56kg), would be able to handle tasks such as attaching bolts to cars with a spanner or picking up groceries at stores.

Speaking at Tesla’s AI Day event, Musk said the robot could have “profound implications for the economy” by plugging gaps in the workforce created by labour shortages. He said it was important that the new machine was not “super expensive”.

FFS, SMH, First sort out your self driven tesla cars. Since it has many problems technically issues and bugs. And since that one Tesla car decided to run over school kids at a school, it needs the 3 laws/rules.. as follows:-

1 – A robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

2 – A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3 – A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

It appears that "that one Tesla" didn't decide to run over school kids at a school.

From the BBC report:      "The driver of the Tesla, a 47-year-old woman, was uninjured in the collision."

Conclusions. Best not to be jumped at.

Since this came from Elon Musk rest assured it is way overhyped and years away from actually doing boring, repetitious and dangerous task.
