Tesla’s Director of Artificial Intelligence, Andrej Karpathy, says that he believes ‘Tesla Bot’ is “on track to become the most powerful AI development platform.”
Since Tesla AI Day last year, CEO Elon Musk has been slowly pushing the idea that Tesla is becoming more of an AI/robotics company.
Musk has been boasting about the company’s AI talent, led by Director of Artificial Intelligence, Andrej Karpathy, and believes that the company is in the best position to make advancements in AI due to the real-world applications in its vehicles.
More recently, the CEO even suggested that Tesla could play a role in making Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) a reality through the ‘Tesla Bot’ project, a humanoid robot.
The project has been seen more as a tool to attract AI and robotic talent to the company, and surely Tesla has been in a hiring mode for AI talent since the event and the big reveal of the plans for a robot.
