Tesla Commences Production of Dojo Supercomputer for Autonomous Vehicle Training

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, robotics/AI, supercomputing, sustainability

In its second-quarter earnings report for 2023, Tesla revealed its ambitious plan to address vehicle autonomy at scale with four key technology pillars: an extensive real-world dataset, neural net training, vehicle hardware, and vehicle software. Notably, the electric vehicle manufacturer asserted its commitment to developing each of these pillars in-house. A significant milestone in this endeavor was announced as Tesla started the production of its custom-built Dojo training computer, a critical component in achieving faster and more cost-effective neural net training.

While Tesla already possesses one of the world’s most potent Nvidia GPU-based supercomputers, the Dojo supercomputer takes a different approach by utilizing chips specifically designed by Tesla. Back in 2019, Tesla CEO Elon Musk christened this project as “Dojo,” envisioning it as an exceptionally powerful training computer. He claimed that Dojo would be capable of performing an exaflop, or one quintillion (1018) floating-point operations per second, an astounding level of computational power. To put it into perspective, performing one calculation every second on a one exaFLOP computer system would take over 31 billion years, as reported by Network World.

The development of Dojo has been a continuous process. At Tesla’s AI Day in 2021, the automaker showcased its initial chip and training tiles, which would eventually form a complete Dojo cluster, also known as an “exapod.” Tesla’s plan involves combining two sets of three tiles in a tray, and then placing two trays in a computer cabinet to achieve over 100 petaflops per cabinet. With a 10-cabinet system, Tesla’s Dojo exapod will exceed the exaflop barrier of compute power.

X logo officially replaces Twitter’s famous bird on mobile app, building headquarters

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, internet

X, formerly known as Twitter, has officially retired its famous blue and white bird logo.

The icon on the mobile app changed to an “X” late Friday night in the latest phase of a sweeping rebrand the platform’s owner Elon Musk announced earlier this month. The company previously introduced the logo on the web and launched the domain, though also remains live.

Musk, who acquired the platform for $44 billion late last year, wrote in a post Sunday that the company would soon “bid adieu to the twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds.” The transition from Twitter to X reflects Musk’s vision to turn the platform into what he has called an “everything app.”

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, internet, satellites

Starlink, Elon Musk’s satellite internet service, is set to launch an internet connection service in Bangladesh to connect geographically isolated (hard to reach) or disaster-affected populations with uninterrupted high-speed Internet.

Starlink provided two devices for a three-month test run, State Minister for Information and Communication Technology Zunaid Ahmed Palak told Dhaka Tribune after the meeting.

One of the devices will be installed on a bus while another device will be installed on a remote island in Bangladesh to test the compatibility of this internet service.

Twitter Has Undeniably Gotten Better Under Elon Musk

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, evolution

Opinion Piece. What’s your opinion?

The social media platform formerly known as Twitter has gone through another remarkable evolution thanks to owner Elon Musk. The platform is now called “X” and is even sporting a brand spanking new logo. The blue bird has taken its last flight and the site seems poised to bring its users into the next venture in the Muskverse.

But not everyone has been happy with the changes Musk has made since taking over the company. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) recently went after Musk for the supposed harassment she receives on the platform. It seems that since the day he bought the social media company, he has been making leftists’ heads explode, and AOC is far from an exception in claiming she “never experienced more harassment on this platform” than she does now. She also claimed people “now pay to give their harassment more visibility.”
