Elon Musk says Tesla is still developing its AI neural computer network known as "Dojo," which would train its vehicles' Full Self Driving AI. In a tweet, the CEO said Dojo can process large amounts of video data. He asked anyone interested in the project to consider joining Tesla's AI or computer/chip teams.
- Musk first spoke about Dojo during 2019's Autonomy Day, where he said the goal is to take vast amounts of data and train at a video level.
- The supercomputer would be optimized for training computer vision AI on videos. Musk said the computing power would be an exaFLOP, which is 1,000 petaFLOPS.
- Tesla will hire software engineers and developers to work on Dojo. Those positions will be based in Palo Alto, Austin, and Seattle, although "exceptional" applicants could work remotely, according to Musk.
- Dojo translates to “place of the way” in Japanese.
- From Twitter: @PPathole wrote that Tesla's "cars are great, but the AI innovations are game changers."
