Elon Musk announced the introduction of a humanoid robot
Austin: Tesla founder Elon Musk has announced that Tesla will release a model of his Optimus robot in September this year.
According to a foreign news agency, the CEO of Tesla has said that the company’s artificial intelligence day will be postponed due to the introduction of humanoid robots.
According to Elon Musk, the robot will be more important to the company than its electric vehicle business.
He said in a tweet that Tesla’s Artificial Intelligence Day has been postponed to September 30. It is possible that prototypes of the Optimus will be presented at this time.
The first glimpse of the Optimus robot was announced at the first AI event in August. At the ceremony, Elon Musk said it would have a huge impact on the economy.
Designed for general purposes, the 5ft 8in Optimus can figure out steering using multiple cameras, sensors and autopilot software.
According to Elon Musk, the robot will be able to perform daily tasks such as shopping in supermarkets, but initially it will be used for factory-related tasks.
Last year, he also said the Optimus robot would be the most important thing the world’s biggest automaker would do in 2022.
The Tesla owner said the robot remains human in light of the dangers posed by artificial intelligence.
