During its AI Day event on Thursday, Tesla released plans for its artificial intelligence training system it has dubbed DOJO.

The in-house designed device would tackle the “insatiable demand for speed as well as capacity for neural-network training,” Tesla’s Ganesh Venkataramanan said. The project aims to “achieve best AI training performance” and “enable larger and more complex neural net models,” while still being power and cost-efficient.

DOJO would be powered by a distributed computing architecture, which would feature a large compute plane and facilitate high bandwidth and low latencies. The device would include several layers, including a chip, the system, a compute cluster and additional software.

“It will be the fastest AI training computer,” said Venkataramanan. “We have a whole next-generation plan already.”

CEO Elon Musk said Dojo would be operational by next year.

Also at the AI Day event, Tesla unveiled plans for a human-sized robot aptly called Tesla Bot. The life-sized, 125 lbs humanoid bot would be able to “eliminate dangerous, repetitive and boring tasks” and deadlift up to 150 lbs — read more about it here.
