Musk presents K robot, but AI experts brand it a’scam’

Musk presents $20K robot, but AI experts brand it a’scam’

Elon Musk’s latest humanoid Optimus robot was lambasted by AI and robotics experts on Friday.

Despite the lights and music, the company’s human-shaped robot didn’t wow at AI Day in Palo Alto, California.

Robotics specialist Cynthia Yeung tweeted, “None of this is cutting edge.” @Tesla, hire PhDs and attend robotics conferences.

After months of tweets and teases, Elon Musk unveiled Tesla's new humanoid Optimus robot using the company's technology at their AI Day presentation

Musk stated the robot would ‘change civilization as we know it.’

‘Optimus’ came from behind a wall with two robotic hands in a heart shape. Audience members applauded wildly when the bot awkwardly moved its hands and took its first steps.

The conference webcast then showed the bot wave to the crowd and do the ‘raise the roof’ dance motion.

AI expert Filip Piekniewski called the fun-loving bot ‘next level cringeworthy’ and a ‘total fraud.’

Musk stated it was the first time the bot walked without a leash, to which Piekniewski replied, ‘excellent to test falling, as this thing will be falling a lot.’

The Tesla CEO stated the robot will cost ‘less than $20,000’The robot - teased at last year's event by a person in a spandex costume - was the star for the tech giant, as Musk claimed it would 'be a fundamental transformation for civilization as we know it'

Clips of the bot picking up boxes and other duties were shown.

The business said it constructed the robot in six months.

Optimus has WiFi, LTE, and autopilot software. Human-inspired hands and knees.

Tesla claims Optimus can handle a 20-pound backpack with one hand.

Tesla published a video Friday showing robotic hands creating a heart.

Optimus’ hands That’s not CGI,’ he tweeted.Musk told the crowd that this was the first time it had walked without a tether, according to The Verge . The billionaire Tesla CEO said they're planning to sell it for 'probably less than $20,000'

The robot prototype affects production, household life, the service industry, healthcare, and more.

“What’s the economy?” Labor is key. What happens when labor is plentiful? Last year’s AI Day, Musk said. Is the economy capped?’ Perhaps.

Tesla AI Day will feature the company’s humanoid Optimus robot, teased last year by a spandex-clad person. Tesla published a video of robotic hands creating a heart on Friday.

Musk has teased Optimus on Twitter, in public comments, and in a Chinese essay.

Musk tweeted this week, ‘This event is for attracting AI & robotics engineers, therefore it will be technical. Advanced semiconductor & supercomputer engineers for next-gen training & inference.

The world’s richest man also replied to a tweet listing ‘predicted Tesla AI Day reactions’

Analysts: “Disappointing, a distraction.” Can I fk it? TSLAQ: Stock pump, Elon’s a phony, I’m a virgin, I despise myself. AI/roboticists: (the sweat droplet emoji). $TSLA retail investors: (sweat emojis)

Musk said, “Almost.” Engineers that understand AI/robotics challenges will like it.

It has significant ramifications for manufacturing, personal life, the service industry, healthcare, and more.

“What’s the economy?” Labor is key. What happens when labor is plentiful? Last year’s AI Day, Musk said. Is the economy capped?’ Possibly

Wall Street and tech-watchers will be looking for any hints regarding Tesla’s financial health.

Garrett Nelson, vice president of stock research at CFRA Research, told IBD it will be difficult to shift focus from Musk’s trial over Twitter.

We expect the updates to be longer-term, but investors will listen for hints about its Q3 results, such as whether it has been harmed by operational and cost issues like Ford highlighted last week.

 

Tesla Optimus information

Elon Musk announced Tesla Bot in August 2021.

The 5’8-foot, 125-pound robot

5 mph, 125 lb deadlift, 45 lb carry.

Tesla Optimus has human-like hands, feet, and eyes.

The human-friendly bot

Humans can outrun and defeat robots if necessary.

The robot can perform monotonous or dull activities and be a companion.

Tesla will showcase the robot on AI Day, September 30.

 

Tesla Bot/Optimus

The humanoid robot was announced during AI Day in 2021. Musk said it will ‘blow people away’

Tesla Bots replace humans in repetitive, dangerous, and uninteresting tasks. But Musk envisions them cooking, mowing lawns, and caring for the elderly in millions of homes.

The Tesla Bot is near to adult height and weight, can carry or pick up heavy objects, move rapidly with little steps, and has an interactive screen on its face.

After showing a prototype, the CEO said he’ll focus on boosting the bot’s intelligence and large-scale production. Today’s event will help the organization attract robotics expertise.

As production scaled up and costs fall, humanoid robots’ usefulness will grow yearly. Future house robots may cost less than cars. In less than a decade, people may be able to buy robots as birthday gifts, he said.

The 5’8-foot, 125-pound Tesla bot will feature the Autopilot computer used in the company’s electric cars, allowing it to recognize real-world objects. It will also have its own sensors and actuators.

It will be able to ‘deadlift’ 150 pounds, carry 45 pounds, walk 5 miles per hour, have human-like hands, and’see.’

Tesla’s progress in constructing a humanoid robot with AI remains to be seen.

Will Jackson, CEO of robotics business Engineered Arts, told The Verge, ‘We still have fundamental robotics technological gaps.’ If Tesla has solved it, it will be a game changer, but it seems doubtful because it would be a sudden jump forward.

‘We expect the updates to be longer-term in emphasis, but investors will listen for any signals regarding its Q3 performance, such as if it has been adversely affected by operational and cost issues similar to those announced by Ford last week,’ CFRA Research’s Garrett Nelson told IBD.

The business will update the North American deployment of FSD Beta, which is available if owners acquire a high safety score, the overall development of autonomous driving technology, and what to expect in the next iteration.

This is a significant event to lay out technical updates and improvements over the coming year, Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives said in a note previewing the event.
