Elon Musk: "I Created This and It Terrifies Me.."
In this interview from December, 2022 Elon Musk reveals some terrifying details about Telsa's AI Robot, "Optimist".
We've got some really exciting things to show you. I think you'll be pretty impressed. I do wanna set some expectations with respect to our optimist robot. As last year was just a person in a robot suit . But we've now, we've come a long way and it's I think we, compared to that, it's gonna be very impressive
And we're gonna talk about the advancements in AI for full self-driving as well as how they apply to more generally to real world AI problems like a humanoid robot. And even going beyond that I think there's some potential that what we're doing here at Tesla could make a meaningful contribution to agi.
And and I think actually Teslas a good entity to do it from a governance standpoint because we're a publicly traded company with one class of sh of stock. , and that means that the public controls Tesla. And I think that's actually a good thing. So if I go crazy, you can fire me.
This is important . Maybe I've gone crazy. I don't know. Yeah, so we're gonna talk a lot about our progress in AI autopilot as well as a progress in with Dojo. And then we're gonna bring the team out and do a long q and a so you can ask tough questions what, whatever you'd like.
Existential questions, technical questions. But we want to have as much time for q and a as possible. Let's see with that, because what, say anything? Hey guys, I'm Lana work on and I'm Lizzie mechanical engineer on the project as well. Okay. So should we bring up the bot before we do that?
We have one, one little bonus tip for the day. This is actually the first time we try this robot without any backup support. Mechanical mechanisms. No cables, nothing. Yeah. Wanna agree with you guys tonight, but is the first time. Let's see you ready? Let's go.
Think got some moves here.
So basically it's actually the same self-driving computer that runs in your Tesla cars. By the way,
this is the, this is literally the first time the robot has operated without a te was on stage tonight.
So the robot can actually do a lot more than we just showed you. We just didn't want it to fall on its face. So , we'll show you some videos now of the robot doing a bunch of other things yeah. Which are less risky. Yeah. We should close this screen, guys. Yeah.
Yeah, we wanted to show a little bit more what we've done over the past few months with the bud and just walking around and dancing on stage. Just humble beginnings. But you can see the autopilot neural networks sprinting as is just retrained for the bar directly on on that new platform.
That's my watering can. Yeah. When you see a rendered view that's the robot, what's the, that's the world the robot sees. So it's very clearly identifying objects, like this is the object it should pick up, picking it up. Yeah,
we use the same process as we did for autopilot to collect data and train neural networks that we didn't deploy on the robot. That's an example that illustrates the upper body a little bit more. Something that will like, try to nail down in a few months over the next few months, I would say. To perfection this is really an actual station in the Fremont factory as well that it's working at.
Yep. And that's not the only thing we have to show today, right? Yeah, absolutely. That what you saw was what we call Bumble Sea. That's our rough development robot uh, using semi off the shelf actuators. But we actually have gone a step further than that. Already the team's done an incredible job.
And we actually have an optimist bought with fully Tesla designed and built actuators battery pack control system, everything. It wasn't quite ready to walk but it, I think it will walk in a few weeks. But we wanted to show you the robot the, so something that's actually fairly close to what will go into production and and show you all the things it can do.
