AI-Powered Robot Can Solve Global Labor Shortages

( – In Silicon Valley, artificial intelligence robots are popping up all over the area, and some experts have said that they might be able to bridge the gap for global labor shortages.

Tesla, Amazon, Nvidia, and Microsoft all invested billions into what are known as “humanoid robots.” These robots can stand on two legs and are designed to do tasks typically intended for people.

Currently, these robots are being deployed in warehouses, but the possibilities for these robots extend well beyond a warehouse. These bots could work alongside people in work environments, including restaurants, homes, and in offices.

Elon Musk, Tesla CEO, has been one of the most supportive people of these humanoids. He actually created his own Optimus robot and has said that they are “going to transform the world to a degree even greater than the cars.”

The market for humanoids is expected to jump almost forty billion dollars in value over the next two decades, according to Goldman Sachs. They predict that these devices will be the next best “must-have” device. They have also said that these robots might be “vital for manufacturing and dangerous work, but they would also help with elderly care and fill in for labor shortages in factories.”

The progress of artificial intelligence has been the biggest change for these robots in the industry. The technology behind ChatGPT is able to tell robots how to act and what commands to do. The machines use something called “computer vision,” and they are able to train in real-world situations, just like humans.

Experts have been looking into how humanoids can help people and how they may possibly be the answer to a global labor shortage. In the United States, there are over eight million jobs and the gap is set to grow over the years. Expats have said that robots could be filling jobs that are monotonous or dangerous.

Jeff Cardenas, CEO and co-founder of robot startup Apptronik, said, “We’re starting in what we call the dull, dirty, dangerous tasks, these tasks where we have big labor shortages today, where we don’t have people to do this work.”
