“Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk on Wednesday confirmed plans to hold the AI Day on August 19.
What Happened: Musk tweeted to confirm the AI Day event will now be held in August after fixing a tentative late-July date earlier.
Musk reiterated that the AI day this year will be aimed at providing a boost to its recruiting plans where the electric vehicle maker will go over the progress with ‘Tesla software & hardware’ for training and inference.”
“Responding on Twitter, CEO Elon Musk said he believes Tesla will become one of the largest AI companies in the world. This is in relation to Tesla’s autonomous vehicle approach. Musk said “…it turns out that the only way to solve self-driving is to solve a big part of real-world AI,” when responding about Tesla’s self-driving work.
It seems Musk believes Google is also advancing in AI. While not naming them directly, he said, “A company whose name rhymes with Shmoogle is pretty far ahead,” in reference to artificial intelligence. Google has created such software as DeepMind and AlphaGo, impressive demonstrations of AI in real-world and theoretical situations.”
“Nomi is an avatar of artificial intelligence. She’ll entertain you with a music playlist, adjust the temperature or snap a selfie on command. This is Chinese innovation–a great leap forward from China’s communist past.”
