LAS VEGAS (Reuters) – Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Inc’s chief executive and founder, said on Thursday he expects the challenge of building robots for commercial use that can grasp items as efficiently as human hands will be solved in the next 10 years.

The remark, made on stage at Amazon’s “re:MARS” conference in Las Vegas, underscored how technology is being developed that one day could take care of essential tasks in retail warehouses currently carried out by humans, namely the stowing and picking up of customer orders.
