The company 1X Technologies has just published a video showing the capabilities of its humanoid robot Eve. Around thirty robots perform many different tasks, completely autonomously.

New AI models aren’t just for generating text and images. They will also make it possible to create versatile robots, capable of performing a large number of tasks and quickly adapting to new work. This is what the company 1X Technologies is working on. The firm announced a fundraising of $23.5 million last year, largely supported by OpenAI, then another $100 million in January.
If the funds obtained will be used to develop its bipedal robot Neothe firm is also working on another model called Eve. This has the advantage of being simpler, having no legs but a long trunk mounted on wheels, and claws rather than hands with articulated fingers. This allows the firm to focus on what is essential, namely creating a robot capable of performing a large number of tasks. 1X Technologies just released a video to show off its recent progress.

One AI model for all tasks
The firm specifies that the video is shot in real time, and that all the robots operate autonomously, without the slightest human intervention. The robots move around and perform many different tasks, which mainly involve grabbing objects at different heights to move them. They even manage to crouch, which, combined with the smiling faces on display, makes for a somewhat dystopian feel.
The robots use the same neural network for all behaviors, which are learned visually. The network first received global training on behaviors physiquesphysiques, then on more specific tasks. He learns by watching demonstrations in the form of images. To learn a new task, it only takes a few minutes to collect the data and train it with a simple graphics card to PCPC.
