Optimus will make human physical labor a voluntary option
Elon Musk promises that Optimus will be as advanced that will make physical labor an optiongiven that these robots could end up doing any type of work that requires effort, something that has also raised a number of concerns.
Because while many people are excited about the release of these robots in the future, others are afraid that Optimus, and other humanoid robots, could revolutionize manufacturing so much that many humans lose their jobs.
However, Musk has clarified that these robots are not going to take jobsbut that they are even going to create it, and that they will be able to work in consonance with human beings: “It is not about replacing people, it is about increasing the capabilities of humans”, he clarifies.
