    Tesla Lays Off Over 200 Autopilot Data-Labelling Employees

    I think Tesla’s AI Day 2021 answers a lot of these questions, but in short, data labeling is currently being partially done by humans. In order to have Tesla’s Neural Net start labelling all data, it must have existing, previously labeled data that it can refer to. Hence where data-labelers come...

    Tesla Lays Off Over 200 Autopilot Data-Labelling Employees

    True, I think this job in particular is pretty expendable so they quite possibly could have hired more autopilot-labeling employees since. Also true, pretty expendable so cutting some of their labeling team definitely is the least damaging option. I do hope that’s partially because of...

    Tesla Lays Off Over 200 Autopilot Data-Labelling Employees

    Today, Bloomberg reported that Tesla just laid off around 200 data-labelling employees from the Autopilot team and closed a branch in San Mateo, California. This lines up with Tesla's goal to make all autopilot data auto-labelled, and hopefully this shows that significant progress has been made...

    How Some Tesla Owners Break The Law to "Stop ICE-ing"

    yeah, it's pretty ridiculous, isn't it. I guess they figure they won't get caught. Really fighting fire with fire if you look at it. If it isn't clear enough, we're not condoning this whosoever, but it's interesting to see the lengths of what some will do, and I imagine ICE-ing will be a bigger...

    Recent Road Trip Report with Stats and photos

    How much of the charge used was from home/the resort? I'm guessing only a fraction of the charge used on the drive was actually from a supercharger since the average cost of electricity, ~$.30/kWh would cost you $69.

    FSDBeta community tracker?

    Looks interesting! Their handle is @eliasmrntz1 on Twitter, and it appears they have currently tracked 37.3k miles from FSD Beta testers. I'm curious to know if FSD Beta was engaged during their entire roadtrip as their disengagement rate seems pretty low.

    Elon Flames Remote Work | TMC Podcast Clip

    You're probably referring more to his other statements/rants on Twitter that are unnecessary, and I agree with that.
