How to watch Tesla AI Day and what to expect | Digital Trends Spanish

Tesla today celebrates its IA Day, led by the CEOElon Musk and the focus of the event is expected to be squarely on robotics and AI initiatives within Tesla, not on any of Musk’s personal controversies and side interests.

Topics to be discussed could range from advances in self-driving cars to the first demonstration of Optimus, the company’s humanoid robot project.

How to watch Tesla AI Day

Tesla has yet to publicly announce details on the specifics of the event, but based on entries that have been posted online, we may have something completely different tomorrow.

A digital ticket that has been posted on Twitter reveals some juicy, and downright weird, details about the event. It will supposedly take place in Palo Alto and will last from 5 pm PT to 11 pm PT, which is a very strange time to hold an event. Also, a six hour event? The actual presentation likely won’t last the entirety of the event, but last year’s nearly three-hour runtime should give you an idea of ​​what to expect.

Either way, we expect the event to be streamed live on YouTube via the Tesla page like it was last year. As of now, however, a live event has yet to be released, and with the mysterious nature of the event, anything is possible at this point.

What to expect from Tesla AI Day

We don’t have an agenda for the event, so it’s hard to know quite what Tesla has in store. Obviously, we can expect Musk to share more about Tesla’s work on autonomous cars, specifically with FSD (Full Self-Driving), the software behind its driver assistance system. FSD is currently in beta for those willing to pay $15,000 to test it out in their Teslas and is expected to launch later this year. So don’t be surprised if we go into some of the extreme technical details behind FSD and what it will be capable of.

We can also see Musk touching on the idea of ​​Tesla’s robotaxi, a concept that has been around since 2016. The futuristic taxi, which may not have a steering wheel or pedals, was last mentioned on Tesla’s first-quarter earnings call earlier this month. of this year.

Of course, Optimus is the project we’re all excited to see an update on. The humanoid robot was first unveiled at AI Day last year, though it was more of an idea than an actual product. This year, we all look forward to seeing this concept come to life with a real working prototype available. Ai Day was supposedly delayed just in time to prepare the humanoid robot prototype, so it’s a safe bet that it will show up one way or another.

The humanoid robot Tesla Optimus.

As described at last year’s event, Optimus is a humanoid robot meant to replace “dangerous, menial or boring tasks” whether in factories or homes. Despite his intimidating appearance, Musk has said that Optimus will be friendly and would be easily outmatched by a human, if it came to that. Tesla has an obvious application for Optimus working in his own Tesla factories, which already contain some of the most advanced robotics on the planet, but it’s the more practical applications that have captured the interest of the world at large.

Will Tesla deliver on Optimus’ exciting and possibly terrifying idea? That will be the main topic of discussion coming out of Tesla AI Day.
