Latest news from Tesla is not about cars but about solving one of the hardest problems in the world. – AI driving.

Elon Musk just announced a Tesla AI day for Aug 19th to showcase the compabies leadership in Artificial Intelligence and custom hardware.

Over the last few years, Tesla started holding events, not really to unveil new products, but to present new technologies that it has been working on in certain fields.

For example, it held a “Tesla Autonomy Day” back in 2019 and a “Tesla Battery Day” last year.

Musk mentioned this on the recent Investors call and then accounced the actutal date via Twitter this week.

Musk alos reiterated that the goal is going to be recruiting AI talent. Musk added: “convincing the best AI talent to join Tesla is the sole goal.”

Therefore, we can expect the presentation not to be easily accessible to the general public and geared toward those already familiar with the AI field.

Tesla’s AI team is led by Andrej Karpathy, who is often presenting at AI conferences. We should expect him to make an appearance at Tesla’s AI Day.

The automaker already has a deep roster of machine learning, computer vision, and neural net specialists, but the recruiting is extremely competitive in those fields.

Tesla hopes to differentiate itself by showing talents that their contributions can quickly lead to real-world applications of AI in Tesla products.

On the software front, Tesla is expected to release updates on its effort to develop neural nets to power its computer vision system.

On the hardware front, Tesla is expected to give an update on its supercomputer program, which is going to lead to Tesla Dojo, an upcoming supercomputer optimized for neural net training.

While the focus is expected to be on self-driving, Tesla could also discuss other applications of AI in its products and operations.

Full details expected on the Tesla website in due course.
