Tesla has started sending out invitations for its AI Day 2022, and the automaker is teasing more information on full self-driving, Tesla Bot, Dojo, and more.
Although it’s been a long time since Tesla held a product unveil event, the company has begun to hold somewhat regular annual events with specific topics at the center of the presentation – much like Apple with its “conference annual Apple Developer World and its regular fall. an event.
It started with “Tesla Battery Dayin 2020 when the automaker unveiled its new 4680 battery cell and plans to produce its own battery cells for the first time.
Last year, the society organized what it called “Tesla AI Daywhich focused on the company’s self-driving program. The automaker also unveiled its Dojo Supercomputer and “Robot Teslashot of a humanoid robot — now known as the Tesla Optimus — at the event.
Earlier this year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that Tesla will hold a new AI Day in Augustbut he quickly postponed it to September 30 to allow more time to unveil a real, working Tesla Optimus prototype at the event.
Today, Tesla began sending invitations to the event. In the invite, the automaker wrote:
You are invited to attend AI Day 2022 on September 30 in Palo Alto, CA. You’ll learn about Tesla’s latest developments in artificial intelligence, including full self-driving, the Tesla bot, Dojo, and more.
Musk previously defined AI Day as a recruiting tool for Tesla as it expands its AI team, which the CEO once described as the “best in the world.”
However, this is also a consumer presentation, and in this case Tesla owners will want an updated timeline and details on when and how Tesla plans to deliver on its promise to activate the full self-driving capability in its vehicles produced since 2016.
Musk has moved the goalpost several times lately – ranging from saying that Tesla will have 1 million robotaxis on the road by the end of the year for 1 million people in the FSD Beta programwhich are very different things.
Last year, Tesla unveiled the Dojo supercomputer program at the event. At the time, Tesla only had a working chip and tile. Now, the automaker is expected to unveil a real cluster of supercomputers based on Dojo technology.
Finally, there is the Tesla Bot or Optimus program. Musk teased that Tesla will have an early working prototype ready for the event. The CEO clarified that the humanoid robot program has become a new priority for the company, and he is even removing some of the manpower from the autopilot and FSD.
If Tesla has a working prototype of the robot, it wouldn’t be too surprising if it even started taking orders for it at next week’s event.
