Musk tagged the popular host of AI podcast on YouTube Lex Fridman while tweeting about his obsession with AI. He tweeted that he was using AI to solve self-driving. But for him, AI could only do benign tasks and he critically evaluates those tasks.
Tesla using AI
Artificial Intelligence is used for vision and planning to achieve a general solution to full self-driving. Tesla is developing silicon chips that it could use to power its full self-driving software from ground. It is taking every aspect of design of the chips to get expected results. The company is applying cutting-edge research to solve issues from perception to control.
Tesla is also working on core algorithms that help in driving. It creates a high-fidelity representation of the world and planning trajectories in that space. Elon Musk said that AI would still be left behind even in its benign stage. He made this opinion while making a presentation about brain-machine interface technology of Neuralink.
