All of us have heard about robotics advancement all the time, and there is a never-ending debate about whether they will replace the entire human workforce. But is it true? Or what kind of advancements are waiting for us in the future? What is Elon Musk’s Tesla bot? let’s dig into more information.

Few business bodies used to call robotics advancement a danger for humankind. In this regard, Elon Musk-the CEO of famous car company Tesla Motors, always stays on top. Elon said in 2017, “it’s going to be the hardest thing to make AI safe even if there are not any chances from 5 to 10%”.

Elon added, in a year back interview to New York Times the nature of AI that is being presented in war games is all about smashing humans. And this statement was more than enough to show his views towards AI advancement.

Recently, he left the world in massive shock with the Tesla bot revealing a humanoid robot. Yes, you have heard it right: a car company is working on a human-shaped robot that performs different tasks.

Why is a car company working on make robots?

Tesla motors is one of those companies, which are called software companies as well. It’s because Tesla is leading the world with its self-driven cars with AI integration. Recently, they have created an in-house based chip that will efficiently perform all the self-driven algorithms. All the CPUs are replaced with these smart chips to get the supercomputer-like functions.

With the latest software deployment in their cars. They provide the market, robots on four wheels that can predict future advancement.

Is Elon Musk’s Tesla Bot some next-level AI implementation?

In the AI day by Tesla Motors, they have disclosed a humanoid robot. Tesla bot is a 5.8 tall AI-powered humanoid robot that will perform repetitive and unsafe tasks, said Elon Musk (CEO Tesla motors). For example, you can ask the Tesla bot to do groceries or help you pack unique items for similar packages. Tesla bot is a bi-pedal, humanoid robot with ten finger hands like human and feet without toes.

Most of the parts in Elon musk’s tesla bot are the same as the self-driven cars by Tesla motors. Yes, you guessed it right, autopilot cameras, FSD computers and hardware, DOJO training, auto labeling, simulation and tools, and many others are part of the tesla robot.

Surprisingly, this was a massive mismatch with Elon’s previous statements regarding AI, but, hope for the best.

In the summary of the CEO, Tesla is generating robots with ethical AI, which is a good initiative.

The exact date is not confirmed, yet. Because we know MUSK for the delay in its product launch before its public deployment. According to the different predictions, the Elon Musk’s tesla bot will be out in 2022 for the implementation phase.

As far as the cost is concerned, it will be round about $10,000 or more according to a rough estimation due to high advanced technology usage. Other than that, Elon Musk shared Tesla bot is inexpensive for the people of different classes.

Conclusion

The future outcomes can be predicted but, some questions still need to be addressed.

• Is it safe to make a humanoid robot for multiple tasks?

• Is Tesla bot efficient enough to adapt to the real world quickly? For example, to perform various tasks at the same time. (Response time to the situation)

• Building a robot, not for a single purpose task, but multiple ones is worthiest or not?

• Is Tesla bot all about alluring the human to have a robot like them or there are some other outcomes as well?

• If a tesla bot is about to be labored according to the situation, why it is in humanoid form? As labor, robots can be in any form.

After these burning questions, we would like to add that why it is concerned to have a human-shaped robot when a human can do their tasks more efficiently. If you have any ideas or need to share more questions, reach us via the below comment section.
