A few months ago, Elon Musk had already spoken about the design of his first humanoid robot equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI). The richest man in the world confirmed his words in a tweet by stating that there would indeed be a working prototype of Optimus. Note that the official release of this revolutionary robot is coming soon and already promises to mark a major turning point in the world of AI!
Optimus is a revolution for the world!
After space and cars, the boss of Tesla would be developing the very first humanoid robot named “Optimus”. The latter turns out to be equipped with AI and skilled enough to perform tasks, such as hard physical work.
According to the founder of SpaceX, the functional prototype called Optimus measures approximately 1.73 meters and weighs 56.7 kg. The intelligent robot can move at a speed of 8 km/h and is capable of lifting 68 kilos and carrying 20 kilos. According to sources, Optimus would contain a computer placed in the torso and a screen in place of the face. In addition, the boss of Tesla praised his scientific team as “very talented” for having contributed to the development of the software for the humanoid robot.
The Tesla Day event scheduled for September 30, 2022
Typically, Optimus would be intended to operate primarily in the factory in order to perform physical work. However, the robot signed Elon Musk is also intended to be used at home where it could develop a unique personality to match that of the owner.
Concretely, the Tesla Day would serve to show the world that the firm is not limited essentially to the creation of electronic automobiles. On the contrary, this date of September 30 could well be a great event in terms of artificial intelligence! Still according to the words of Elon Musk, Tesla Day could hold some surprises since the founder of PayPal said that it would also be about “something else exciting”!
