The multi-billionaire CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, has announced on Twitter that Tesla will be hosting a “Super Fun AI Party/Hackathon” at his house. The hackathon is expected to take place around the beginning of March 2020.
The CEO also mentioned that the AI party/hackathon will be hosted along with Tesla’s AI/autopilot team.
When a Twitter user asked whether one needs a Ph.D. in AI to get an invitation, Musk replied by saying that one’s educational level doesn’t matter. However, Musk mentioned that he/she should have a deep understanding of AI & the ability to implement NNs in the real world.
Before the hackathon’s announcement, Musk had also called for developers to join Tesla’s self-driving division. So the hackathon could be a part of a recruitment process for Tesla’s autonomous driving program.
