“For the Tesla bot it’s going to start with work that is boring and repetitive. Basically work that a person would least like to do,” Musk added.


“Things that I think are very hard about having a useful humanoid robot is ‘Can it navigate through the world without being explicitly trained?’ Without explicit line-by-line instructions,” Musk said. “Can you talk to it and say ‘Pick up that bolt, attach it to the car with that wrench.' It should be able to do that.”


The development of the robot seems to be a responsibility of Musk’s, especially as he has been critical of AI’s potential power in the past. On an episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Musk once warned AI could become increasingly dangerous if overdeveloped, especially as its mind and memory are terrifically powerful.


Don’t expect to see the Robot on Tesla’s production lines, either. Musk said the parts were there, and Tesla decided to make it.


“If we don’t, someone else would, so I guess we should probably make it. And make it safe,” Musk said.
