Tesla is continuing to innovate, this time with the unveiling of a $300 million AI computing cluster. This news has caused some to speculate that Tesla could become a major player in the artificial intelligence sector.
The supercomputer is said to be more powerful than the world’s third-highest performing supercomputer. It will use 10,000 Nvidia H100 GPUs to power its performance. This is a major investment for Tesla, as they plan to spend over $2 billion on AI training in 2023 and 2024.
Tesla‘s Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta is expected to utilize the new computing cluster. Currently, the FSD beta is at the Level 2 automation, which means that the driver must remain attentive and ready to take control of the vehicle at any time.
To reach Level 3, 4, or 5 automation, Tesla must continue to improve its AI technology. Tesla currently collects driver data to help train its AI, and CEO Elon Musk believes that fully self-driving cars will create software-like margins in the future.
Recently, Musk live-streamed himself using version 12 of the FSD beta on X, showing that the system can do quite a bit. However, despite its impressive abilities, it still has a long way to go before becoming completely self-driving.
The news of the new computing cluster has caused Tesla‘s stock to rise 6.18 percent during Tuesday trading hours. As Tesla continues to invest in AI technology, it is possible that they could become a major player in the artificial intelligence sector.
Tesla‘s FSD technology has the potential to revolutionize the auto industry, and the new computing cluster could be the next step in making that a reality. With the power of AI, Tesla could become a major player in the industry, and their stock could continue to rise as a result.
