Friendly and 173 centimeters tall, Elon Musk introduces the humanoid robot Tesla Bot
The Tesla company is building a humanoid robot called the Tesla Bot to interact with the human world.
"Tesla Bot will be ready next year," the company announced at its 'AI Day' event.
The robot will use the same artificial intelligence that the company uses for its battery-powered vehicles. He will be 173 centimeters tall, will weigh about 57kg, and will be built with "light materials", with a screen on his body where he will display information.
Elon Musk said the robot was created "to be friendly and to navigate the world created for human beings" but would be built on a "mechanical" level so that someone could get away from it and most likely to be able to defeat him, in case of a clash ”.
Tesla says the robot's general purpose is to perform tasks that humans consider "unsafe, repetitive or boring," such as shopping, deploying in dangerous situations, or the like.
Recall that in the past, Musk has opposed the use of robots as a weapon and warned of the dangers that Artificial Intelligence may pose, stating that in 2025 Artificial Intelligence will take control of humanity.
As he recently put it: U in think that if your robots are too slow, easy to defeat, the risks diminish.
" We need to worry about artificial intelligence," Musk repeated during a question-and-answer session after the presentation. " What we're trying to do here at Tesla is make artificial intelligence useful to humans, and that 's ... definitely good."
