In a recent revelation, tech billionaire Elon Musk announced that Tesla is developing an artificial general intelligence (AGI) for its Full Self-Driving (FSD) vehicles. This represents a significant step towards obtaining complete self-driving capabilities. Debuted in a responsive post, Musk highlighted the role of AGI in enhancing the performance of self-driving vehicles and marking it as superior to non-AGI systems.
This announcement coincides with the rising role of AI in other Musk enterprises, including the AI-centred firm xAI. xAI has already introduced the Grok chatbot and seeks to secure a significant investment for its AI development endeavours. These developments emphasize the noticeable trend of AI integration in major tech industries.
Meanwhile, significant AI developments continue in other corporations. Baidu's AI Ernie Bot boasts 100 million users in China, demonstrating the vast influence and traction of AI in tech ecosystems. OpenAI, another frontrunner, announces a 'Preparedness Framework' to safeguard against potential AI risks. A new preparedness team will reportedly bridge safety and policy teams for check-and-balance purposes.
Despite the promising strides, Tesla has not yet provided a definitive timeline for accomplishing its Full Self-Driving objectives. An imminent FSD version 12 update, originally scheduled for December, is delayed due to the need for more testing in heavy precipitation regions. This update was to introduce an AI to self-driving operations, pushing FSD out of its beta phase.
