    Wiki Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    The camera has an ~infinite range, it can see the sun which is far away etc. The 250m is what Mobileye or someone said that their neural network could accurately detect vehicles at. I assume with bigger neural network, with autolabelled data(4D, RNN etc), with the BEV-network having 250m+...

    Sure, it might not be useful for you. But clearly lots of people are finding it useful. An Argentian father sending money to his kids in schools in another country, a Phillipine son in US sending money to his family or a Swedish mother buying Charlotte’s Web for her epileptic daughter. Fringe...

    There are tumbling services people use when they want to hide their traces. Lots of people send bitcoins to the tumbler, the tumbler sends back some other bitcoins to new addresses. Some of this is legit(ie someone wants to donate money to charity anonymously) and some is theft/drug/tax...

    AI experts: true full self-driving cars could be decades away because AI is not good enough yet

    I would be very surprised if it was decades away. If we look back at the last decade, in 2011 deep learning was dead. Then in 2012 it took off with alexnet. Then we had deepmind atari in 2015 and alphago in 2016 and gpt-2 in 2019. In 2021 we have Wu Dao 2.0 10x that of GPT-3. GPT-3 Scared You...

    Tesla BEV Competition Developments

    Paywall so didn’t read. But I think a lot of people look and Tesla and think ”wow so easy, just make electric cars and BOOM huge market cap!!!”. They fail to understand how hard it was for Tesla to do what they did and how good Tesla had to be in order to make it. Nikola is not Tesla. VW is not...
