If you have been a subscriber for a while, you sure by now know who Andrej Karpathy is, but in case you don’t, Andrej has been really important to the evolution of Autopilot, Full Self-Driving, and the entire area of AI at Tesla. He’s worked there for five years and directed the Autopilot team at first and the AI team more recently.
I’ve been a Tesla owner for almost five years now, and I’ve been able to experience firsthand how much better Autopilot has become through the years. Five years ago my car didn’t even use all the cameras for Autopilot and had trouble even staying in its lane. While this has not all been Andrej, he has been a core contributor to the team and enabled a lot of brilliant minds to shine under his leadership.
I certainly will miss Andrej at Tesla and seeing his awesome presentations, the Tesla Autopilot team is amazing and Andrej is too.
Thank you for everything that you have given to the Tesla community, we wish you the best in your future endeavors Andrej!
💚 Ignacio and Vanessa
