New insights into humanoid robots

Suzanne Gildert, co-founder of Sanctuary.ai, tells about their approach to developing their humanoid robot, Phoenix™. A superb introduction to the subject.

What I hate are the click-bait titles,

EXCLUSIVE: Why Tesla Bot Competitor Sanctuary’s Humanoid Will Shock the World w/ Suzanne Gildert

Not shocking at all, just educational. Their approach is truly “first principles.” Apart from the brain, it’s the hands with opposable thumbs that truly distinguish humans from the other great apes. Tools, like flint knives, are extensions of the human hand. Sanctuary aims to make the robots with truly human hands. Tesla can pick up some pointers!
