An I-Robot which can develop a unique human personality will be ready in just months, Elon Musk has revealed. The tech tycoon will unveil a prototype of the humanoid called ‘Optimus’ during Tesla’s ‘Al Day’ event on September 30.
According to the Daily Star, The 125-pound bot is 5ft 8inchs and will be capable of dead-lifting 150 pounds ( 69kg) while carrying 45 pounds (21kg). Optimus’ face features a screen display of information and will be fitted with autopilot software, reports LadBible. Musk says it will include eight cameras to feed into the neural network, which is said to match the functions of the human brain.
The clever machine will use the cameras the analyze environments by identifying objects, images, and routes. Technologist, Raj Rajkumar, expressed his doubts about Optimus and said: “Is the ‘Tesla bot’ the next dream shot to pump up the hype machine?
“I can safely say that it will be much longer than 10 years before a humanoid bot from any company on the planet can go to the store and get groceries for you.” But the SpaceX founder has reassured critics that the robot can only carry out “boring tasks.” He told British journalist John from a live link-up at the forum in Doha:
“I hope that we will have an interesting prototype to show people.”We have a very talented team at Tesla that I’m working with closely to have a prototype humanoid robot ready by the end of September. “And I think we are tracking to that point.”
