Tesla has announced that its second AI Day will be held in Palo Alto. Many speculated that it would be held in Austin due to all the hard work employees have put into making Gigafactory Texas.
Tesla dropped a late-night tweet on Twitter with the caption ‘AI Day 2022 on September 30’. The image included Palo Alto and a tiny robot emoji pointing to the fact that Tesla’s plans to reveal a working Optimus prototype are on track.
Tesla explained that the robot would be operated by artificial intelligence systems similar to that of Tesla’s electric vehicles, which are currently under development. Optimus will be almost 173 cm, i.e., 5ft 8 inches tall, weigh about 57 kgs, and can carry up to 20 kgs of weight.
Earlier this year, CEO of Tesla Elon Musk announced that the company had pushed its second Tesla AI Dat to September 30, 2022. This decision was made as the company was still working on its humanoid robot Optimus. Earlier, Tesla had announced hosting the second Tesla AI day on August 19, 2022.
According to officials, the scheduled event would reveal several impressive updates for the customers. Many upcoming products or projects in the pipeline are expected to be revealed during Tesla’s AI Day event.
Besides the reveal of Optimus Bot, the second Tesla AI day is expected to disclose more about Occupancy Networks that enable the Tesla car to perceive the space around it as a human or animal would. Ashok Elluswamy, Tesla’s Autopilot Software Director, recently shared a deep dive into Occupancy Networks.
