back to article Tesla hedges Dojo supercomputer bet with 10K Nvidia H100 GPU cluster

Tesla still dreams of fueling its motors with actual full self-driving (FSD) capabilities, and it's blowing piles of cash on AI infrastructure to reach that milestone. The American EV manufacturer's latest investment is in a 10,000 GPU compute cluster, revealed in a xeet by Tesla AI Engineer Tim Zaman over the weekend. The …

    CEO Elon Musk has no problem throwing money at his goal of achieving FSD

    CEO Elon Musk has no problem throwing other people's money at his goal of achieving FSD.

    Fixed it for you. Also, having a vast data center doing the job well does not translate to it doing the same in the car, and it still does not justify using other road users as guinea pigs as the consequences of errors do not become less lethal.

      I think you misunderstand the purpose of the data centre: it doesn't do real-time processing and control, it does pattern recognition to produce models the vehicle can run. It's a bit like making a cheat sheet for the car computer.

    10k GPu's?

    That's going to make for one helluvan expensive, rather large and probably unwieldy vehicle; a bit like his muskiness himself.

      They don't go in the car! It's a system to generate AI training from raw data. The resultant training data is what goes in the cars, not the hardware.

      Although an OTA update of hardware would be more than a little impressive.

        One day, we'll be able to download more than just RAM.

    If this level of hardware can't enable AI to drive a car it'll look like the developers are missing a trick somewhere.

    Just goes to show

    Musk has no clue how to reach the self driving he promised a decade ago.

    Maybe the AI is to come up with excuses they'll give to customers once they start threatening to sue for never delivering the true autonomous technology they paid $12,000 for, or for the lack of ability to operate your Tesla as an autonomous taxi and make $100K a year another famous Musk promise.
