Tesla chief, Elon Musk, has responded to the news that top artificial intelligence executive, Andrej Karpathy, leaving the company. Karpathy, who joined the company in 2017, had just had a month off and has now taken to Twitter to reveal his exit.
“It’s been a great pleasure to help Tesla towards its goals over the last five years and a difficult decision to part ways. In that time, Autopilot graduated from lane keeping to city streets and I look forward to seeing the exceptionally strong Autopilot team continue that momentum.”
I have no concrete plans for what’s next but look to spend more time revisiting my long-term passions around technical work in AI, open source and education.
