“This shouldn’t be thought of as USA only,” he added in the tweet. The recruitment drive is set to hire diverse and AI-skilled professionals from all countries — to hire for its offices across the Bay Area, Austin or other Tesla Gigafactories.

Clarifying further, Musk also mentioned the eligibility criteria for the hackathon. “PhD is definitely not required. All that matters is a deep understanding of AI and ability to implement NNs in a way that is actually useful (latter point is what’s truly hard). Don’t care if you even graduated high school,” he said.
Musk, who is also a critic of AI technology, has been actively talking about AI adoption. He had recently invited people to join Tesla’s Autopilot Test team. This spreads across areas like hardware, autonomy algorithms and neural networks.
“Join AI at Tesla! It reports directly to me and we meet/email/text almost every day. My actions, not just words, show how critically I view (benign) AI,” he said stresing how ‘benign’ tasks are also evaluated by him directly.

The company is adopting AI for its self driving cars as well. Those hired may be a part of the autopilot project. As of now, the autopilot feature allows the car to navigate within the lane and apply brakes. However, it still requires human intervention.
“Tesla will soon have over a million connected vehicles worldwide with sensors and compute needed for full self-driving, which is orders of magnitude more than everyone else combined, giving you the best possible dataset to work with,” Musk tweeted.
