Tesla hires AI expert to help lead team in charge of self-driving software

Tesla Inc. has hired a Stanford University computer scientist specializing in artificial intelligence and deep learning to lead its efforts around driverless cars.

Andrej Karpathy, previously a research scientist at OpenAI, was named director of AI and Autopilot Vision, reporting directly to Chief Executive Elon Musk, a Tesla spokesperson said.

Karpathy is "one of the world's leading experts in computer vision and deep learning," the spokesperson said. He will work closely with Jim Keller, who is responsible for Autopilot hardware and software.

Autopilot is Tesla's suite of advanced driver assistance systems, which relies on an onboard Nvidia Corp "supercomputer" to make sense of data from numerous sensors in and around Tesla vehicles and the company's software.

Several Silicon Valley companies, from titans such as Apple Inc. to startups, as well as traditional car makers, software companies, and others elsewhere, are vying to make driverless cars a common sight on roads.

Apple's CEO Tim Cook recently confirmed the company's efforts around what he called "autonomous systems," and called driverless cars "the mother of all AI projects."

Musk is co-chair of OpenAI, a nonprofit focused on AI research and on a path to "safe artificial general intelligence."

The hire comes as Tesla's lead of Autopilot software, Chris Lattner, earlier this week announced he was leaving the company after six months on the job.
