Tesla to Open Dojo Training to Public as Web Service

Tesla plans to open its “Dojo” computer for training as a web service once all the bugs are worked out according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk via Twitter.

At Tesla’s Autonomy Day last year, Musk announced Project “Dojo.” During the announcement, Musk stated “The goal of Dojo will be to be able to take in vast amounts of data and train at a video level and do unsupervised massive training of vast amounts of video with the Dojo program — or Dojo computer.” The Dojo supercomputer will be a place for Tesla to train its Full Self-Driving AI.

Making it a potential top contender in the race to break the exaFLOP barrier in supercomputing, Musk revealed last month Tesla’s Dojo supercomputer will be capable of an exaFLOP, one quintillion (1018) floating-point operations per second, or 1,000 petaFLOPS.

Musk confirmed Tesla’s plan to open Dojo to the public as a machine-learning training web service via Twitter:

Over the last five years, Tesla and a team of chip experts have been in the works building Tesla’s own chip architecture to develop their self-driving computer.

Musk indicated Dojo could be ready with in the next year but no timeline has been confirmed.
