Ela Musk, a visionary, billionaire and founder of tech giant Tesla, has previously said that he has some concerns about the development of artificial intelligence and advanced robotics. It was precisely because of this fact that the attendees of a recent Tesla conference were surprised by the introduction of their very own humanoid robot Tesla Bot.
Musk says Tesla is the largest robotics company in the world, with its cars actually being robots on wheels. That is why he allegedly decided to introduce his own humanoid robot, which would also use technology from the Autopilot system found in Tesla cars.
The robot will measure 173 centimeters and weigh 56.7 kilograms. The engine will be capable of carrying up to 20.4 kilograms and will lift almost 70 kg off the ground. Musk described the robots as friendly creatures who wouldn’t be more capable and smarter than humans, which should be a certain deterrent against their abuse. The machine will communicate with people through the integrated display.
Tesla should fully introduce the robot next year, saying Musk did not specify for what purposes people could use the machine. It can be assumed that Bots should make their daily life easier for potential owners by doing certain jobs for them. The Autopilot system must assist the robot in free movement.
In addition to the Tesla robot, the D1 chip was also introduced, which was made specifically for supercomputers. This will help, among other things, more advanced autonomous management functions that the company wants to integrate into future and current models.
