Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt has revealed that people’s most-requested task for a robot is to clean up dishes in the kitchen.
Schmidt said cleaning the dishes is “literally the number one request”.
He pointed out that people should not expect a dishwashing and kitchen cleaning robot anytime soon.
“That turns out to be an extraordinarily difficult problem,” said Schmidt.
He said it is challenging, as you have to “walk into a situation, you have to assess where things are, you have to identify everything, you have to remember where it goes, you have to move it in an appropriate way, and you have to do all this in some manner of real time”.
