Elon Musk says Tesla is tracking a working prototype of the humanoid robot Tesla Optimus by the end of September.
Last month, Musk announced “Tesla AI Day # 2” with “many interesting updates”August 19th.
Original »Tesla AI Day”Which took place last year was an event dedicated to the company’s self-government program. The automaker also introduced it Dojo supercomputer and announced plans for “Tesla bot»Humanoid robot – now known as Tesla Optimus.
Artificial Intelligence Day № 2 was supposed to take place a year after the first, but Musk moved to Twitter earlier this month to postpone the event until Sept. 30. As for the reason for the delay, the CEO said that Until then, Tesla may have a working prototype Optimus.
Today, during an interview at the Qatar Economic Forum, Musk said that Tesla is “watching” to have a working prototype of its humanoid robot:
Well, hopefully we will have an interesting prototype to show people. We at Tesla have a very talented team with whom I work closely to prepare a prototype humanoid robot by the end of September. And I think we’re tracking up to this point.
The CEO also mimicked other things to be presented during the event that will position Tesla as more than automakers and more as a “real AI company”:
And there will be some more interesting things we’ll talk about at Tesla AI Day. We have such events on Artificial Intelligence Day just to emphasize that Tesla is much more than a car company, and that we, in my opinion, are the leading real-world AI company that exists.
Tesla is expected to give updates about its Dojo supercomputer, which trains neural networks, and a more general update about its self-management efforts, which is Tesla’s first real-world application of artificial intelligence.
During the interview, Musk also again called for the creation of an agency that would monitor and regulate the development of artificial intelligence to help steer technology towards the public good.
