Sehr interessantes Interview mit Jim Keller, dem Architekten hinter dem AI-Chip von Tesla.
Jim Keller, Tesla’s former head of Autopilot hardware and the designer of Tesla’s Self-Driving Computer chip, says that he is confident about solving autonomous driving after working at Tesla.
We first exclusively reported on Tesla quietly hiring Keller, a legendary chip designer, from AMD back in 2016 and we were fairly excited by the implications of Tesla hiring such an important chip architect.
At the time, we speculated that Tesla could be looking into making its own silicon at some point – speculation that was further reinforced after Keller’s hiring was followed by a team of chip architects and executives from AMD also joining Tesla.
Finally, our suspicions were confirmed two years later when Elon Musk confirmed that Tesla is working on its own new AI chip.
Keller was leading the program, along with several other hardware responsibilities at the automaker.
