Elon Musk made new comments on Tesla’s rewrite of the Autopilot and now sets a timetable of 2-4 months before it can be released to the public with more features.
As we mentioned earlier, Tesla is going through “a significant foundational rewrite in the Tesla Autopilot.” As part of the rewrite, Musk says the “neural net is absorbing more and more of the problem.”
This would also require a more comprehensive method of labelling.
The CEO said it was almost ready earlier this year, but we haven’t seen the change yet.
Now last night, Musk posted on Twitter with an update on the Autopilot rewrite:
In another tweet, the CEO said that he believes the update is 2 to 4 months away:
“A lot of functionality will happen all at once when we transition to the new software stack. Most likely, it will be releasable in 2 to 4 months. Then it’s a question of what functionality is proven safe enough to enable for owners.”
It would put it in the late third quarter or early fourth quarter.
Electrek recently reported on a talk by Andrej Karpathy, Tesla’s head of AI and computer vision, who discussed Tesla’s current effort to improve labeling.
