Tesla FSD Updates

There has been a big change in Tesla’s Full Self Driving. The Version 11 series implementation was basically a big program full of decision logic to drive the car. That, of course, meant that every possible case needed to be evaluated (from the car driving data) and programmed. This is how other “auto driving” software works and is basically impossible.

Version 12 is a complete redesign using artificial intelligence. Driving data is evaluated and used to program a neural network which controls the driving of the car. What that means is that driving will automatically continue to improve. Tesla now has over one billion miles of driving data to use to allow the neural net to expand.

So far, results seem to be excellent. Perfect, no but neither is a human. Virtually everyone is saying where version 12 is right now is better than a human. Clearly Tesla thinks it is ready from prime time as they are offering a free 30 day trial for all Tesla owners. If it is good the result should be more sales of FSD. If it is not, it will be more data to use to improve the neural net.

If you have tried it, let us know how it is going for you.
