The brand new AI chips Tesla devised to achieve actual self-driving car status have begun rolling out to older Tesla models that require retrofitting to replace the prior on-board processors. Based on media reports.
Unfortunately, there was some misleading reporting about these chips, a particular type of AI computer processor that extensively supports Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), generally known as Machine Learning (ML) or Deep Learning (DL).
Before discovering the over-hyped reporting, these custom-developed AI chips devised by Tesla engineers are certainly admirable, and the computer hardware design team deserves to be happy with what they’ve achieved. Kudos for their spectacular work.
However, such an acknowledgment doesn’t also indicate that they’ve somehow achieved a singularity marvel in AI, and nor does it mean they’ve miraculously solved the real-world problem of how to attain an actual self-driving driverless car.
Not by a long shot. And but many in the media appear to think so, and at times have implied in a wide-eyed overzealous approach that Tesla’s new computer processors have seemingly reached a nirvana of finally getting us to fully autonomous cars.
