The AI Day event is expected to include updates on many of Tesla’s ongoing tech projects, notably including the Dojo Chip, Full Self-Driving (FSD) and the Optimus robot.
Tesla delayed AI Day from initial taking place this summer, citing plans to debut a live prototype of the Optimus humanoid robot at the rescheduled event. The first Tesla AI Day took place last year, showing off the Dojo D1 supercomputer chip, as well as the introduction to Optimus.
In addition to showing off new tech and updates, Musk previously stated that the purpose of AI Day was to help Tesla recruit talented engineers.
“Yes, the purpose of AI Day is to convince great AI/software/chip talent to join Tesla,” said Musk over the summer.
Following last year’s AI Day event, Tesla received roughly 100 times more applicants per day than it had prior. The top destinations for engineering grads is to work at SpaceX and Tesla.
