Amazon is testing human-like robots for repetitive tasks at its R&D center, aimed at executing repetitive tasks and collaborating with human workers. They're starting with Digit, a two-legged robot that handles tasks like moving empty tote boxes, a task considered "highly repetitive." Amazon sees potential for Digit to work alongside humans in warehouses.

Since founding Amazon Robotics, the company has shown a growing interest in robotics, acquiring Canvas Technology in 2020. Their Sparrow system, unveiled last year, uses AI and computer vision to handle individual products. Amazon says this tech integration has led to 700 new job types. The company is focused on equipping employees with new skills and tech for career growth.
