TESLA IS TRYING THEIR HANDS IN BUILDING AI CHIPS FOR AUTONOMOUS CARS
Tesla is swapping into the model S, X, and 3.
WHAT IS TESLA UPTO?
Tesla is working on developing a piece of hardware which can be used instead of the Model S, X, and 3 for making autonomous cars advanced and unmatchable. The motive of trying their hands in AI chips is to fulfill its own proficiency and effectiveness.
According to the statement of Pete Bannon, the director of the Hardware 3 project said; “We had the benefit […] of knowing what our neural networks look like, and what they’ll look like in the future,”. He added that the upgrade of the hardware will be available in 2019.
Elon Musk, co-founder, Chief Executive Officer, and product architect of Tesla stated “the key is to be able to run the neural network at a fundamental, bare metal level. You have to do these calculations in the circuit itself, not in some sort of emulation mode, which is how a GPU or CPU would operate. You want to do a massive amount of [calculations] with the memory right there.”
WHAT’S THE PURPOSE?
Elon Musk thinks the result is going to be quite dramatic as the company’s computer software are currently based on Nvidia’s hardware which can manage nearly two-hundred frames each sec, wherein the new AI chips can manage around 2000 frames each sec. The productivity can be boosted up with AI chips with full redundancy and failover.
According to the company, by keeping its built-up silicone, the company can easily develop their required inventories with the required velocity. The top management of the company also thinks that the hardware is lacking, as the project is quite essential anyone can opt to build it.
The task taken is not simple but if Tesla manages to achieve the milestone without investing a lot of resources on it, then it could be a great accomplishment.
HOW WILL THE COMPANY GET CHIPS INTO EXISTING TOOLS?
According to the Elon Musk CEO, co-founder and product architect of Tesla, the company is paying attention to getting chips to existing tools just by switching out the machine. All can be done, just by pulling out one machine and replacing it with another one as all the connectors are compatible.
