Elon Musk's Latest Company is Developing Robots to do your Housework Video

For the majority people, housework is the total worst, and it’s kinda weird how in 2016, we still don’t have anything remotely like Rosie the robot maid, who vacuumed the hell out of the Jetsons’ house.
Well, it might finally be our time, since multitasking entrepreneur Elon Musk just announced that his latest robotics firm, Open AI, will be developing 'domestic robots' that can perform essential household chores.
To go faster the process, Open AI will be developing the robots based on skill that already exists - basically, it’s leaving to be taking off-the-shelf robots and customising them to do housework.
"There are existing technique for specific tasks, but we believe that knowledge algorithms can eventually be made reliable enough to create a general-purpose robot," Open AI says in a blog post.
Open AI launch back in December 2015, and is head up by Musk and Sam Altman, leader of Y Combinator - a US corporation that provides seed funding for startups. Since then, its secured US$1 billion in financial support from tech heavy-hitters such as PayPal cofounder Peter Thiel.
The idea at the back the non-profit is to bring artificial intelligence to our daily lives, rather than keeping it locked up in robotics labs around the world.
"We think AI should be an extension of person human wills and, in the spirit of liberty, as broadly and evenly distributed as is likely safely," the company announce at its launch.
Building a feasible chore-bot is just one of Open AI’s goals; one more is to build a robot with a useful and natural sympathetic of language. "Today, there are promising algorithms for supervise language tasks such as query answering, syntactic-parsing and mechanism translation but there aren’t any for additional higher linguistic goals, such as the aptitude to carry a conversation, the aptitude to fully understand a text, and the ability to follow complex instructions in usual language," says Open AI. "We expect to develop latest learning algorithms and paradigms to undertake these problems."
They should have a chat to Microsoft’s for the moment decommissioned chatbot Tay, but not for too long, in case she starts excursion the Zodiac killer and ask for that sweet 3-inch-floppy.
The last goal for Open AI right now is solve a wide diversity of games, such as chess, Go, and the Rubik's cube, using a single robot.
This all sounds huge, and like most of what Musk does, including annoying to get humans to Mars, and making renewable energy more obtainable to the average person, we’re all in. With any luck it doesn't backfire with our chorebots receiving all stabby on us, but if anyone's going to do this carefully, it's Musk.
"I think we should be very careful about artificial cleverness," he said during an MIT symposium back in 2014. "If I were to deduction at what our biggest existential threat is, it's almost certainly that... With artificial intelligence, we are summon the -demon."
