Tesla park in red: Key AI expert leaves manufacturer of electric car Tesla | 07/14/22


One of the key experts behind Tesla’s driver support system is the departure of the electric car manufacturer.

Andrej Karpathy announced Thursday night that he wanted to spend more time on technical work related to the development of artificial intelligence. Karpathy has been with Tesla since 2017 and was responsible, among other things, for Autopilot to be able to identify its environment.

Tesla is currently trying to adapt the Autopilot system from simple tasks such as setting up routes and distances to operate in cities with traffic lights, intersections and priority rules. As the video from the beta testers shows, the software still makes a number of errors that need to be corrected by the person behind the wheel.

Automated system training also involves people naming objects in pictures for them. Tesla recently fired some of the employees involved reduction. U.S. authorities are investigating a pilot program after a series of accidents.

Tesla shares have lost 2.27 percent to $ 694.96 in NASDAQ trading.
