According to CEO Elon Musk, California based Tesla will hold an Artificial Intelligence Day in a month or so. Musk also stated that the company will go over progress with Tesla AI software and hardware, both training & inference. The ultimate purpose is recruiting.
The news of an Artificial Intelligence Day follows Tesla’s Senior Director of AI, Andrej Karpathy’s presentation last night at the 2021 Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. Karpathy’s presentation detailed Tesla’s current Supercomputer that is assisting the company’s Neural Network store with some of the most important data for Tesla’s mission to introduce fully autonomous vehicles in the coming years.Musk noted in his Tweet that the event’s objective is not to show the strides Tesla has made to the public in its Artificial Intelligence program, but to attract the world’s engineers and other talents to come work for California based Tesla. The company has tried to recruit high-calibre talent to several of its departments, and the Artificial Intelligence team is no different.
California based Tesla has held several days dedicated to the numerous parts of the business it conducts. In 2019, it held Autonomy Day, where it went over the real-world efforts it was making to surge toward a feature-complete Full Self-Driving suite. Last year, Tesla held Battery Day in September, which was coupled with its Annual Shareholder’s Meeting. Tesla revealed the next generation of electric vehicle batteries at the event, as the 4680 cell continues volume production at the Kato Road facility and will be implemented into cars at Gigafactory Berlin and Gigafactory Texas.
