​Elon Musk Is Hiring For Tesla And You Don’t Even Need A Degree

​Elon Musk Is Hiring For Tesla And You Don’t Even Need A Degree

Elon Musk has said he's currently hiring over at Tesla - and believe it or not, he's not arsed about whether or not you have a PhD, university degree or even a high school diploma (the US equivalent to the UK's GCSE).

Musk is after some new recruits for the artificial intelligence team at Tesla, the electric car company he co-founded in 2003.

Taking to Twitter to advertise what would undoubtedly be the opportunity of a lifetime earlier this week, Musk wrote: "Join AI at Tesla! It reports directly to me & we meet/email/text almost every day. My actions, not just words, show how critically I view (benign) AI."

Replying to a hopeful applicant on Twitter, Musk went on to explain that higher education wasn't essential.

"A PhD is definitely not required," the entrepreneur said.

"All that matters is a deep understanding of AI & 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."

Advertising several other roles - including 'world-class chip designers', engineers, supervisors and support personnel - in a series of follow-up tweets, Musk promised all that mattered was a 'super hardcore work ethic, talent for building things, common sense and trustworthiness'.

"The rest we can train," he said.

Musk went on to discuss the benefits of working at Tesla, including access to the 'custom 144 TOPS in-vehicle inference computer' and Tesla's training supercomputer called Dojo, which can 'process vast amounts of video training data & efficiently run hypersparce arrays with a vast number of parameters, plenty of memory & ultra-high bandwidth between cores'.

Erm, I don't know what ANY of that means, but it sounds impressive, right? Perhaps I'll just stick to the day job, but if you've got a bit more of a flair for artificial intelligence, maybe you should try your luck.
