Tesla’s director of AI departs the company

Andrej Karpathy, Tesla’s Director of AI, has announced his departure from the company.

Karpathy has worked at Tesla for the past five years. Prior to joining Tesla, he worked as a research scientist at OpenAI on computer vision and generative modelling. Further back, he earned his PhD at Stanford as part of the research team of leading AI expert Fei-Fei Li.

Tesla will suffer a significant loss as a result of Karparthy’s departure. Karparthy led the Autopilot Vision team at Tesla. The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust has announced a collaboration with TCS to develop digital solutions that increase specialist productivity, decrease patient wait times, and improve overall patient experience.

Following rumours, Tesla has begun laying off approximately 10% of its workforce. Tesla CEO Elon Musk stated in an email to executives that he has a “super bad feeling” about the economy.

Given the record number of job openings and high demand for talent across the tech industry, but particularly in AI, some high-profile employees appear to be leaving on their own.

Several other high-profile Tesla executives, according to The Information, have left the company.
