No price indicated in the article, I'm going to guess $30k.
Actually it is


"There are only 11 of them, costing roughly $400,000 each"
Err.. color me confused. When I follow the link I see a two paragraph article which doesn't contain that sentence. Confused

You were referring to the TV, he was referring to the bricklayer (I think he was making a joke )

I concur. This is what I see there about pricing:

While the electronics titan didn't release a price, it'll likely be significant, so start saving now.

$400K is the bricklayer robot, not the TV.

Your phone does this. Don't know about you, but your phone likely has far more incriminating photos, since, y'know, it's probably the camera you use to take those photos.

This is bringing feature parity to desktop PCs. Where it belongs. If I can open Google Photos and type "duck" and have it return every image of a duck on my phone, or "Alexandra" and have it return every image of her on my phone, why shouldn't that be built into Windows, too?

There will be an actual AI spy inside your Windows 10 PC looking through your files and storing the information for future recovery even if you're disconnected from the internet.

So microsoft wants to use your GPU/CPU to process pictures and videos on your computer, and all that data is going to get sucked up like a vacuum cleaner on steroids.

It might be as simple as killing a background process to turn it off but eventually they'll bury it so deep in the OS you can't.

It is certainly going to be a challenge. I think most of us here will be dead/retired before it gets too bad. It's our kids that we need worry about.

“The machines will never replace the human,” Mr. Buczkiewicz said. “They will help down the road and they will make it that we won’t need as many workers, but given the shortages we’re seeing now, that’s probably a good thing.”

But he added, “There’s a human element to a craft that you don’t get from a robot.”

Famous last words. This type of denial falls perfectly into line with that other earlier article today how 91% of people believe AI/Robotics will replace other peoples jobs but not theirs. The future is grim.

It's only a matter of time before bricklayers are replaced by robots. As for pipe layers, let's hope that day never comes.
