Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Tuesday the electric carmaker will host its second artificial intelligence day on August 19, with the company likely expanding plans to fine-tune its self-driving technology.
“The purpose of AI Day is to convince great AI/software/chip talent to join Tesla,” the billionaire said in a tweet.
The use of AI in self-driving cars has sparked debate about safety issues, but Musk has often claimed that such vehicles are far safer than human-driven ones.
Tesla is developing software for its cars to drive without human intervention or supervision, but its full self-driving system (FSD) currently requires human supervision and isn’t meant to work without a driver at the wheel.
The company held its first AI Day in August last year and a Battery Day in September 2020, where it spoke about the future of battery technology.
“Tesla AI Day #2 on August 19th. So many cool updates!” Musk said in a tweet.
Investors and analysts pay close attention to technology-focused events, where companies delve deeper into their projects and typically provide concrete updates on rollout goals and timelines.
