  • Elon Musk says that Tesla's AI Day has now been pushed to Sept 30.
  • This is Tesla's second AI Day, first happened on August 19, 2021.
  • Says Optimus prototype working by then.


Electric vehicle major Tesla Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk said on Thursday that Tesla's AI Day has now been pushed to September 30.

"Tesla AI Day pushed to September 30, as we may have an Optimus prototype working by then," he wrote on Twitter, almost two weeks after he announced the date of August 19.

Optimus is a humanoid robot that Tesla is working on priority. Musk has previously said that it could be launched next year.

"Optimus could eventually address global shortages of labor, and in the short term might be able to carry items around a factory," Musk had said in January.

This is Tesla's second AI (artificial intelligence) Day, the first happened on August 19, 2021.

Musk, in one of his tweets in May, also said that the purpose of the AI day is to convince great AI/software/chip talent to join Tesla.
