Tesla will be smarter than humans by 2033 as their microchips handle 362T operations per second

Tesla will be ‘more intelligent’ than human by 2033 as his microchips already have 36% brain capacity, study shows

  • Tesla will be ‘more intelligent’ than humans by 2033, a new study suggests
  • Electric cars’ D1 microchips already contain 36% of brain capacity
  • These new microchips can handle 362 trillion operations per second, while the human brain is capable of a quadrillion
  • Elon Musk’s company is using microchips that increase their efficiency by 486% per year

Tesla’s new microchip will be ‘more intelligent’ than humans by 2033 – its processing power currently accounts for 36% of a person’s brain.

According to a study by car and van leasing company Vanrama, the D1 microchip can handle 362 trillion operations per second, while a person’s brain is capable of performing one quadrillion operations per second (that’s number one, followed by 15 zeros). Is).

The firm made its prediction by analyzing past and current Tesla microchips to find that their capacity is growing at a rate of 486% per year.

Elon Musk’s company is set to release the new D1 chip, part of its Dojo supercomputer platform, this year — and it will be a key part of the firm’s Autopilot self-driving system as it continues to evolve, according to vanaram,

By the time it took to read the above graphic, the D1 chip would have completed 7.6 quadrillion operations.

A human brain, which triples in size during a child’s first year and reaches full maturity by age 25, contains about 100 billion neurons.

Researchers have long said that there will come a time when AI will exceed the intellectual capacity of humans – although there is widespread opinion about when this will happen.

‘It would not be insane to believe that technology will become much smarter than humans in our lifetime,’ says Vanaram. ‘Microchips are currently capable of acting like brain synapses, with researchers developing chips that are inspired by the way the brain operates.’

The previous chip, known as Hardware 3, performed 144 trillion operations per second in 2019. Prior to this, hardware 2 could handle 72 trillion operations. The D1 microchip is 30 times more powerful than the Nvidia device being used just six years ago.

Given that growth rate, Wanrama points out that it would only take 17 years for Tesla from the beginning of its development to reach the level of a mature human brain.

The study comes as Musk continues the advantage over electric-powered cars – saying on Twitter on Monday: ‘We see gasoline cars the same way we see steam engines today. The residual value of gasoline cars bought today would be much less than what people thought.

“These chips play an important role in Tesla’s current automated driving functions, but there’s a lot of potential in the next decade,” says Wanrama.

‘Does this mean it will take 11 years to see self-driving cars on the roads, or will it be too soon? Only time and innovation will tell.
