Very good interview with Elon & Lex Fridman of MIT
Man, it's too early for bed time. The guy was so dry, he was more effective than a sleeping pill...
You missed the best part...at the very end...awesome to see Elon in deep thought.
I really liked his certainty about the speed of AP evolution. Growing exponentially... Although he says maybe 6 months until we don't have to have driver attending the steering wheel, that's probably more like end of 2020 in actuality.
I purchased FSD so really excited to get the new computer maybe in a few months...
Right now, we don’t need the new computer. Current AP uses about 80% computational power of the current chipset.

Great interview . Thanks Boonedocks. I am using this Youtube to show others.
Tesla has 99% of the data collecting fleet. Their miles collected increases by the millions on a daily basis.
Tesla Network soon.
An awkward moment I feel when Elon mentioned that the study on human attention during autopilot use will very soon become a moot point with the rapid improvement of AP. The poor MIT team spent years on that study.
Do keep in mind when Elon speaks about something being possible by “x” month/year, while he is right, that doesn’t mean it will be legal on your local roads. Look at advanced summons. It is only to be used in a parking lot, why? Because that is not on public roads, where it is illegal to have a driverless car. Also, I am sure that the “within sight/150ft” limitation is a legal restriction.
inconel, that was a balloon flattening event. I believe him when he says in the future, perhaps nearer than anyone believes, human drivers will be a hazard. I know quite a few now. Elon is testing the real deal in his own vehicle as are many of the engineers I presume. The FSD computer will change the world is the vibe I got. Can't wait to have mine retrofitted. Love the current navigate upgrade. Only disappointment is that it stops once I exit. From what Elon is saying, the vehicle's worth will grow exponentially in the near future once people realize FUD in a Tesla is not only possible, but a preferred mode of safety. Hah. That is a game changer. I've been drinking the Koolaid from the start I can't trust my own response to this which is like a kid before Xmas. Will this be the tipping point for the common man/women to desire a Tesla over any other vehicle? Elon just ate this MIT's kid's lunch and spit out roses.
FSD, not FUD. Been reading too many posts this am!
