Looks like Elon had a few too many at the Tesla Christmas party

Everyone gets a bit bold when they have a couple of beers, and it seems Tesla CEO Elon Musk is no different as he ‘boldly about Tesla’s upcoming custom artificial intelligence hardware’.

According to Bloomberg, while hosting academics and industry researchers at a private event, Musk boasted about the AI developments at Tesla, claiming the solutions will be the best in the world. For the moment, details about what the AI kit will actually do are relatively thin, but we imagine that was the intention until Bloomberg’s leak p*ssed in the punch.

This should hardly come as a surprise, both Tesla’s plans to do its own chips and Musk’s confidence. Firstly, Musk has hardly been shy about his ambitions to remove dependence on other people’s technology. Back in September, it was rumoured this was the case as he was working with AMD to create its own chipset for autonomous driving.

And in terms of his arrogance, this could be considered deserved, after all, Tesla is considered one of the most innovative companies on the planet, with Musk held considered one of the world’s most prominent entrepreneurs.

Right now Tesla uses Nvidia chips, but Musk clearly thinks he has the inside track. Breezing past the likes of Nvidia and Google will be no simple task, but let’s hope he isn’t in such a bousterous mood at the rest of the Christmas parties and accidentally leak plans to eavesdroppers and newspaper sources.
