🦾How You Can Leverage:

Will humanoids just make way for better jobs for humans? 

And how is NVIDIA changing the robotics game? 🤔

Hot off the heels of one of the biggest months (legit) ever for the industry, we got to sit down with the rockstar of robotics, Amit Goel.

Amit is the Director of Robotics at NVIDIA, the company at the epicenter of the robotics movement. For the past 13 years, he’s helped push innovation forward at NVIDIA. 

And what better timing to get ALL THE TEA about the robotics field from a world-renowned expert.

 

It seems like in the past 13 days alone, we’ve seen 13 years worth of developments.

Between NVIDIA’s announcement of the robot-powering GR00T AI model and updates to the Isaac Lab to the recent integration between Figure and ChatGPT, the robotics and humanoids industry is moving at breakneck speed. 

There’s no better guide than Amit. 

Here’s 3 things he showed us that are worth paying attention to 👇

1 – GenAI changed robotics 🤖

First things first — robotics aint new. Across many sectors, robotics have been commonplace for decades. 

But here’s the curveball — generative AI. 

Amit alluded to the fact that Generative AI has changed the decades-long outlook for robotics in a few years. 

Many believed robotics to be one-dimensional — like a Roomba vacuum or a box-packing bot on an assembly line.

But with large language models, now robots can understand language, understand inference, and use that context to complete tasks they maybe weren’t originally built for. 

Try this:
If you wanna see where the transition from robotics to humanoids is going, this video showing Figure’s robotics integration with ChatGPT is legit jaw-dropping. 

2 – NVIDIA is the playground 🛝

What makes the transition from robotics to humanoids easier and easier? 

Data. 

Here’s the thing — NVIDIA doesn’t even make robots.

Instead, they partner with hardware companies and give them everything else they need.

Instead, enterprise companies and startups can use NVIDIA’s new GR00T model and Isaac Lab advancements as a foundational model or sandbox for development. 

Try this:
For this one, you’ve GOTTA watch NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang’s keynote, detailing the new GR00T model and Isaac lab advancements, which is basically an Omniverse gym for digital robots to become super smart. 

It’s mind-boggling. 

You can watch the keynote for FREE!

3 – Share the space 👥

Here’s a not-so-secret secret — super smart humanoid robots are coming. To our warehouses, in our office buildings and everywhere in between. 

Amit admitted that may be uncomfortable for some. But there’s likely no way around it. 

Not only can humanoid bots do the dirty and dangerous jobs humans may not want to do, but they can be employees en masse in repetitive, manual jobs to work around the clock. 

The solution? We (meaning us AND the bots) gotta operate in shared spaces. 

The majority of the world is created for humans. So, we’ve gotta be able to adapt to sharing that space with humanoids. 

Try this:
Want to prepare for a world of humanoids and humans in the same space?

From a work perspective, Amit noted it’s important to identify what elements of your company’s current operations could be better served by humanoid labor vs. human labor. 

So if the time comes, you or your company will not only be ready to share the space, but also can create complimentary or supplementary roles or opportunities to upskill and resell.

Take a look at this recent article from LiveScience that details how human-to-humanoid interactions may work.
