Google robot is “the end of manual labor”

Boston Dynamics’ new “Atlas” robot is a game changer, not just for companies, but for society, Insider.com CEO Jason Calacanis said Wednesday.

“This is really the end of manual labor. When you watch this video, he’s walking through the snow; he’s wobbly, but he gets back up,” the tech investor told CNBC’s “Squawk Alley.”

“Manual labor is going to end in our lifetime, and in this video you can see how close we really are. It’s a huge societal issue with jobs, but it’s going to be a huge lift in terms of efficiency of companies that nobody expected.”

The Alphabet-owned robotics company released a video on Tuesday of the Atlas, in which it moves boxes and gets back up after being knocked down.

“It’s super eerie. In 10 years, the idea is going to be ‘would you let this [robot] put your kids to bed? Would you let it change your kid’s diaper?'” Calacanis said. “That’s how fast this is going to advance. It’s picking up packages right now. These things are going to be walking down the street 10 to 15 years from now, delivering pizzas; they’re going to be in your office moving packages around.”

Calacanis also noted that Amazon.com‘s offices currently have robots executing simple tasks and “eliminating human jobs.”

“This is really the end of manual labor. When you watch this video, he’s walking through the snow; he’s wobbly, but he gets back up,”

“It’s super eerie. In 10 years, the idea is going to be ‘would you let this [robot] put your kids to bed? Would you let it change your kid’s diaper?'” Calacanis said.”

  1. TPTB better hope that someday some ‘hacker’ hasn’t put in a backdoor surprise on their ‘robots’ that isn’t known either until it blows up in THEIR faces either. 🙂

    Truthfully, I hardly think this will be the norm, and instead I think it will be primarily used in the military, manufacturing and healthcare. Won’t be much fun for the greedy ones to not have that personal level of feeling superior, as these robots are smarter than they could ever hope to be.

  2. seek your posted vid blown?

  3. oops..
