Tesla, the electric car manufacturer, recently announced their 'Dojo' project to help push the autonomous technology effort. Tesla's CEO, Elon Musk, described Dojo as an important effort in identifying self-driving visual information.
Simply put, Tesla Dojo program, or Dojo Computer, is basically an AI that will train a host of multiple AI that will enable Tesla electric cars to drive on their own. According to Elon Musk, the goal of Project Dojo will be to take in huge amounts of image and video data and perform unsupervised learning.
Unsupervised Learning involves training the AI with information that isn’t previously defined. For example, in this case, things that appear while driving on the road, like pedestrians, potholes, puppies, etc.
Dojo will be capable of unsupervised learning by going through a number of video files while trying to identify the objects in it. The advantage of training an AI to learn from a video instead of an image is massive. A moving film captures the reality of driving on a road more closely, and it gives context to the situation as well.
Project Dojo is likely to be unveiled entirely during next year’s road to autonomy Tesla event.
Currently, all future competitors of Tesla’s full self-driving capability, including Google, Uber, Apple, and so on are relying solely on LIDAR technology. Google has its own LIDAR technology in the works, while Apple has also invested a billion dollars in making heavy LIDAR small and compact.
