Back in August, Musk said the DOJO supercomputer is being used to rewrite the machine learning algorithms based on a neural net.
Tesla is deploying a beta version of its fully self-driving technology. This update is being pushed out to users who are deemed expert and careful, according to CEO Elon Musk. While Autopilot has been a staple of Tesla’s vehicles for a while, it isn’t considered a fully self-driving car technology by most people. This is why Tesla has been working on a massive update for the driverless technology which Elon Musk claimed would be a massive update. Back in August the billionaire and founder of the company said that the DOJO supercomputer is being used to rewrite the machine learning algorithms based on a neural net. This is said to be able to provide Tesla’s vehicles 4D spatial awareness instead of 2D spatial awareness that they have currently.
“The FSD improvement will come as a quantum leap because it’s a fundamental architectural rewrite, not an incremental tweak. I drive the bleeding edge alpha build in my car personally. Almost at zero interventions between home & work. Limited public release in 6 to 10 weeks,” he had tweeted by in August.
More recently, Musk tweeted,” Limited FSD beta releasing on Tuesday next week, as promised. This will, at first, be limited to a small number of people who are expert & careful drivers.”
FSD equates to full self-driving capabilities which is something Tesla’s cars have never had. That being said, Tesla has been pursuing this quite relentlessly. This comes at the time Alphabet-owned Waymo has announced the world’s first driverless ride-hailing service in Phoenix, Arizona which indicates that Tesla does need to play catch up.
