Is it time to review Isaac Asimov’s law on robotics? After listening Elon Musk One confirms yes. Its CEO Tesla , SpaceX And now the majority owner of Twitter, it is impossible not to be surprised. Yesterday, at the inauguration of a new electric vehicle plant in Austin, Texas, the businessman spoke. Optimus , The robot that Tesla is already developing and which could come into our lives sooner than we imagined. Musk explained: “I think we have the opportunity to start production on the first version of Optimus, hopefully next year.”
Although Tesla has not yet released a prototype of Android or specified how sophisticated it will be, Musk noted that it would “transform the world” and be able to do things that we humans do not want. To do.
Optimus, also known as Tesla bot , One of the company’s most ambitious projects. In August last year, Musk and his team discussed the project and made it clear that it would be built in such a way that anyone could dominate or escape from it. The trader then said that it would measure 5 ‘8 “meters, weigh 125 pounds, be able to carry loads up to 44 pounds and run at a maximum speed of five miles per hour. Yesterday the trader mentioned the robot. Safety again:” Will work to make it safe; Not a Terminator-style thing. “
TeslaBot has raised a lot of expectations, and Elon himself knows this: “I think over time it’s likely to become something more significant than the car business.”
According to the trader, Optimus could Start production in 2023 .
Three rules of robotics
In 1942, Run round , A short story by author Isaac Asimov was published, where his law of robotics was first mentioned. Faced with a situation where Android production is approaching, it’s worth reviewing (can you hear us, Elon?):
The first law. A robot will not harm any human or let any human be harmed by inactivity.
The second law. A robot must obey orders given by humans, which does not conflict with the first law.
The third law. A robot must protect its own existence unless this protection conflicts with the first or second law.
