Dojo is Tesla’s own proprietary supercomputer platform built from the ground up to analyze using artificial intelligence machine learning and more specifically video data from its fleet of vehicles. The automaker already has a massive NVIDIA GPU-based supercomputer, one of the most powerful in the world, but the new Dojo uses custom-built computer chips and an entire Tesla-designed infrastructure.
Electric grid is not enough for Tesla’s new supercomputer
Tesla introduced its new supercomputer Dojo at the AI Day event held yesterday. The company also gave details about its artificial intelligence-supported computer last year. Ancal could not see the computer alive last year, and some of its hardware was shared with us instead.
Today, Tesla unveiled its new Dojo supercomputer and the progress made over the past year. The custom-built supercomputer is considered an important step in the analysis of images from Tesla-branded vehicles. In this way, the company’s autonomous vehicle work is expected to accelerate.
Tesla says that it has made significant progress since last year. The company claimed that a single Dojo processor can do what 6 GPUs can do. It was also stated that the costs would decrease thanks to the new computer.
The company also claims that a single batch of Dojo processors is equivalent to 3 to 4 fully loaded supercomputer racks. Tesla will be able to integrate the host interface directly into the system tray to create a large full host. Tesla states that it can fit two of these system trays in a single Dojo booth with the mainframe assembly.
The electric car maker continues to develop and test the infrastructure needed to build the first “Dojo Exapod”. The company said they had to develop their own high-power cooling and power systems to power the Dojo booths. Because when the system was tried to be tested for the first time, it was noted that the transformer providing electricity to the region could not carry the load.
Tesla plans to complete the Dojo Exapod in the first quarter of 2023. So what do you think about Tesla’s Dojo computer technology? You can share your views with us in the comments section.
