Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, has unveiled Optimus Gen 2, a new model of its humanoid robot. It is capable of dancing and doing squats.
Tesla’s chief executive officer and executive chair of X (formerly Twitter), Elon Musk, has disclosed a new model of Optimus, Tesla’s humanoid robot.
Compared to earlier versions, this prototype is quicker and lighter. December 13, he shared a video presentation of Optimus Gen 2 on his X account.
Humanoid Robot Lighter than Optimus Gen 1
The video shows that compared to Optimus Gen 1, the new robot is 22 pounds lighter. Further, its foot construction imitates human anatomy, enhancing full-body control and balance. Further, Optimus Gen 2 illustrates a few squats. The machine’s fingers have tactile sensing and can control subtle objects, demonstrated when it takes an egg and puts it back.
Tesla’s initial Optimus model appeared last year. The original robot could not easily move forward, and its insides could not be seen.
Another version required aid from the staff to stay upright. In the spring of this year, Elon made public a video showing the next generation of Tesla-generated bots moving quite easily, taking objects from a container and placing them into another.
Musk Supports AI Regulatory Oversight
Musk has constantly emphasized the need for additional artificial intelligence (AI) regulatory oversight. He believes it might be ‘smarter at everything compared to humans.’ This month, Musk said that a ‘digital god’ would result in copyright charges concerning artificial intelligence being unimportant.
Earlier, he envisaged that artificial general intelligence could come before 2030. Most industry experts disagreed with this estimate by claiming it is excessively optimistic.
