Highly curious about things that increase my awareness, expand my perception, and make me open to being a better person.

The rise of humanoid robots is the most recent example of how artificial intelligence and robotics are changing the marketing industry. Figure and other startups are developing commercially viable autonomous humanoid robots that have the potential to transform industries such as manufacturing, logistics, warehousing, and retail. Figure is on solid ground, having been founded by Brett Adcock, Co-Founder of Archer Aviation, and boasting a talented team of professionals from companies such as Apple, Tesla, and Boston Dynamics. The company’s goals are to improve the design and construction process, teach robots to perform human-specific tasks, and integrate robots into the labor force.

Other companies, such as Tesla, are also involved, with CEO Elon Musk believing that the company is ahead of the competition due to its real-world AI. Tesla’s humanoid robot, Optimus, has the potential to have a greater global impact than Tesla’s vehicle business. The rise of these startups is not to be overlooked as the world moves closer to coexisting with autonomous humanoid robots. Keep an eye on these companies’ progress and the impact they will have on various industries in the coming years.
