Is the field of Robotics stuck ?

What's the outlook for the upcoming 15~30 years ? Just more robot dogs and dancing ? Is it worth getting into the field now (M.Sc. and/or Ph.D.) ?

      The first part of the OP is a perfectly fine conversation starter that doesn't have anything to do with that. The quation of it being a viable career path is tacked on to the end of the op, shut the frick up anon

    The real answer is that we need to move away from humanoid robots, that's what's really holding us back.

    It's been stuck because without any sort of decent ai a robot today isn't all that much better than one from 20 years ago.

    shitty AI models are working better than ever
    >balance
    >vision
    quadcopter drones are a great example, they were borderline impossible 10 years ago but commonplace now, because of some shitty AI algorithm that can keep them upright automatically
    >not fully autonomous
    ok but you have to admit its impressive

    Elon recently retweeted some video of their humanoid robot folding a shirt, I've never see robot human hands fold a shirt before, so that seems new......

    Definitely, but it might be a bit too late.
    Also anything you learn in any school will be almost certainly obsolete by the time you get your degree.

      and love how it can handle a 'delicate' egg but they somehow left out the hilarious attempts at cracking it successfully. Why doesn't musk ever show some his failures? It would go a long way to making him not look like the entitled douche he is.

        isnt it also remote controlled (there's a guy just out of frame miming the movements)

          kek, probably so as that sounds exactly like something scumbag musk would do to sell his garbage products.

    Certainly not now that Nvidea has released virtual simulations for Robot AIs to train on.

    There are two paths I see for robots:
    - industrial use, like we already have but perhaps more performant and able to be take on more generalized tasks
    - combat/professional use, more like ai powered exoskeletons and other kinds of assistance

    Robot dogs are a meme, even if they're trying so hard to give them a rescuing usecase they just fricking suck, a drone or small multi-terrain RC car already does the job. Same thing goes for humanoid robots, we've replaced factory workers with application specific machinery, why the frick would anyone want to buy a machine that has neither the the power and speed of such machines nor the adaptability, social skills and reasoning capacity of a normal human?

      At one point you'll be receiving lots of knowledge, day in day out. Until it's just petty pleasure that feels like gain and makes you feel powerful, reminding you. It's a beautiful - pain - fear - that you overcome. It's good to look back on but you'll desire escape. A natural lock will occur. It's worth it but there is another way and it's better - all I'm saying. The journey to reaching the point where knowledge gain is eternal is fun, but the pain and fear gets worse.

      To the point no pleasure received. If you did speed/cocaine, you wouldn't get the effect but this is long down the line. You at most get a lesser food taste and other senses but the graphic is nightmarish and dulled down toned down, and you automatically try to find off what's blocking your natural pleasure which harms you in the illusion.

    We're about to see leaps and bounds by way of brute force as we've seen with LxMs in other domains. They're just going to beat the problem over the head with so many fricking parameters it's a joke. Monolithic end-to-end models will learn to generate millisecond scale actuator instructions from multimodal input. Hardware is the only thing we're waiting on, as at least the last stages of inference will have to be done by edge compute. When the neuromorphic explosion happens robots will become ubiquitous; Alexa™ will fold your clothes, wipe your ass, answer the door, help unbox your Amazon™ products and of course teach you how to do the latest tick tock dances! Though xe won't be able to jerk you off or slip a cheeky finger in your bumhole chud that's wrong because xe can't consent for one, and is misogynistic as frick as it devalues the role womxn have in society.
