Within the next decade, a Silicon Valley startup aiming to achieve this goal has forecasted that humanoid robots equipped with agile hands will be utilized in warehouses and retail stores, offering aid to the elderly, and carrying out household duties.

Given demographic trends, which include an ongoing labor deficit and an escalating elder care predicament, the concept of fully operational, AI-driven humanoid robots appears to be exceedingly attractive, Axios reported.

It has been reported that companies like Amazon are concerned about the possibility of running out of warehouse employees, whose positions are physically and mentally strenuous and have a high turnover rate.
