With speculations on a high, we bring you the top 4 Tesla AI Day predictions just as the event is getting ready to kick off.
Jaden’s AI-enabled electric vehicle company recently hosted an annual event to recruit talented engineers, generating hype for its artificial intelligence capabilities in the process.
Tesla’s event will showcase how the company carried out its promise to add Karpathy, who has since left Tesla, as the head of AI. The focus of the event will be on technical jargon and big promises from high-profile executives such as Elon Musk.
Today we’ll discuss what topics we expect to hear more about based on recent news, as well as last year’s event. But first, let’s talk about what this means for you.
Top 4 Tesla AI Day Predictions
A Prototype of Optimus
Tesla announced plans to produce people-friendly robots at AI Day last year. Their robots are intended to be helpful, navigate through the human world and provide more insights than ever before.
Elon Musk has pushed back the date of the AI day, originally scheduled for August 19, to September. He is trying to have a working prototype by the end of this month.
Tesla works on their own robot that is “worth more than the car business.” They are currently focusing on neural networks and the Dojo advanced supercomputer to achieve this.
Next year, Tesla cars will have Full Self-Driving that can perform tasks. Tesla’s driver assistance system, or FSD, will cost $15,000 and can have some autonomous driving tasks. The next generation of the Transformer will be available in 2023.
It is unlikely that a consumer product with a robotic assistant that can perform human-like tasks will roll out next year, but if it does, it will be good.
FSD is still not available, even though Elon Musk said it would be in two years. There are many lawsuits claiming that Tesla has falsely advertised the capabilities of its ADAS system.
How Autopilot and FSD updates will affect your Business?
Musk tweeted that Tesla’s AI team has an end-of-month deadline for smart summon, which helps you navigate your car in the parking lot and find it.
Tesla is likely to reiterate its goal of providing an FSD beta in North America by the end of the year. Tesla is also expected to provide updates on a new version of FSD beta, like having the car note other cars as it drives and increases speed to keep up with traffic.
Are you excited about Tesla Robotaxis? Elon Musk said that in 2022 there will be a ramp-up phase, and soon after, the company will bring out new products.
In the past, Musk has spoken about a “dedicated robotaxi” that will be autonomous and offer a better price per mile than other forms of public transit. Last quarter, during Tesla’s Q1 earnings call, he went into more detail about what this vehicle would look like.
Musk imagined a time when Tesla owners would have their cars drive themselves in an autonomous ring to make money for them.

Updates to the Dojo Supercomputer
This is where stuff gets complicated. Tesla has a system that relies on cameras and is faster than other autonomous vehicles with lidar and radar technology, meaning it speeds up AI processing. Tesla built the D1 chip in-house for its Dojo supercomputer, which allows for vast amounts of camera imaging data to be processed four times faster than other computing systems.
Earlier this year, Tesla shared information on its AI system Dojo, and how it will contribute to generalized autonomy. The company revealed that Dojo is a distributed AI system that facilitates machine learning. This information was published in a blog post in which we won’t go into details on hardware or capabilities, but Tesla promises to share more during their event this week as well as how they contribute to performance.
Tesla AI Day Surprise Announcements
Elon Musk is hinting at a wave of new products coming out in 2019. Maybe he will announce something especially wacky and unflattering.
