AI Day Shows How Many Things Tesla Is Doing

Tesla AI Day 2021 featured executives presenting the full range of the company’s artificial intelligence efforts, from computer vision to planning and controls to simulation to data infrastructure to automotive super computers to data center supercomputers. Elon Musk capped the event by announcing a humanoid robot that Tesla TSLA+0.9% is developing.

For example:

Tesla optimized the training nodes for neural network computation, with a focus on parallel matrix multiplication. And the team custom designed the D1 chip with 7 nanometer silicon etching technology.

Tens of thousands of D1 chips come together on a pizza box-sized “training tile”, which has 9 petaflops of computational power.

One million training tiles will make up the ExaPOD, Tesla’s data center supercomputer.
