Elon Musk announced that he will release a humanoid robot Tesla Bot in 2022.

Elon Musk said during a speech at the Day of Artificial Intelligence that Tesla is developing a humanoid robot Tesla Bot: its prototype is planned to be released in 2022.

The humanoid robot will perform work based on neural networks and the new Dojo supercomputer. The design itself is based on similar chips and sensors found in Tesla’s self-driving electric vehicles.

The height of the robot will be about 173 cm, weight – 57 kg, and it will move at a speed of 8 km / h.

Basically, if you think about what we’re doing with cars now, Tesla is arguably the world’s largest robotics company, because our cars are like semi-intelligent robots on wheels.

Among his main assignments, Musk noted, are “boring” things that a person is usually not interested in doing, such as going to the grocery store.
