Elon Musk Said Tesla Cars Will Probably Be Better Than Humans At Driving By End Of 2019

Tesla vehicles will be better at driving than humans by the end of 2019, CEO Elon Musk said in an interview with MIT research scientist Lex Fridman.

“I think it will become very quickly — maybe even towards the end of this year, but I would say I’d be shocked if it’s not next year, at the latest — that having a human intervene will decrease safety,” Musk said.

Musk later said that Tesla’s autonomous-driving technology was improving at an exponential rate.
