Andrej Karpathy, Tesla’s Director of Artificial Intelligence and Autopilot Vision, is one of the chief architects of Tesla’s self-driving vision. In July, he hosted a workshop on Neural Network Multi-Task Learning, where he offered some detailed insights on Tesla’s use of AI in developing its Autopilot features. Now Karpathy is featured in a new video in which he describes how Tesla is using PyTorch, an open-source machine learning library, to develop full self-driving capabilities for its vehicles, including Navigate on Autopilot and Smart Summon

As you read this, Tesla’s vehicles are out there on the world’s roads, learning, learning. Like precocious children, they’re steadily building a mental image of the world around them, a body of knowledge that forms the heart of Tesla’s Autopilot suite of features.

In this article, I will examine the claims that Tesla made at its Tesla Autonomy Day on April 22. Although I'm a small investor in Tesla and undoubtedly a fan of the company and its cars, I'll try to be as objective as I can be and show where Tesla's claims are proven or undisputed and where they are unproven and require a leap of faith. In order to have a robotaxi, Tesla has to have the following pieces of the puzzle

Editor's note: Paul Fosse is the kind gentleman who eagerly drove his brand new Tesla Model 3 from Tampa to Sarasota, Florida, to let me test drive it. I later found out he was a software engineer and today realized he could provide great context and insight into software and hardware matters related to Tesla, Waymo, and others. His debut article is below, covering the insane Tesla Autopilot news coming out of Tesla's quarterly conference call. Enjoy!

Tesla's Director of AI, Andrej Karpathy, took to the stage at TRAIN AI 2018 and then proceeded to unpack the company's approach to building its Autopilot computer vision solution. His talk was titled, "Building the Software 2.0 Stack." Andrej took on the task of delineating traditional rule-based programming methods from the programming methods used when a neural network — also known as machine learning or artificial intelligence — runs the show. In typical internet lingo, he dubs neural net programming software 2.0, with rule-based programming taking up the software 1.0 moniker

Presumably following a lucrative offer, Tesla exec Jim Keller — in charge of the company's Autopilot software, low-voltage hardware, and infotainment teams — is reportedly leaving the company and now headed to Intel
