With the announcement that Tesla is holding an “AI Day 2.0” of sorts this coming August 19, CEO Elon Musk has posted some interesting tidbits about the upcoming event. Musk noted that the event would feature “many cool updates,” and one of them may very well be a prototype of Optimus, Tesla’s humanoid robot.
The nature of the “cool” updates that would be announced on AI Day #2 is still up for question, though speculations suggest that they would relate to the company’s AI program. As such, it would not be surprising if Tesla provided updates on FSD, Autopilot, and Project Dojo during the event.
While AI Day #2 will still be a recruitment event like the first AI Day last year, Musk has confirmed that it will also feature a sneak preview of Optimus, also known as the Tesla Bot. This is quite in line with Musk’s previous statements, as he has noted that a prototype of the humanoid machine will be revealed in 2022.
