The electric vehicle maker holds themed events from time to time that reveal details on its progress and plans for the future.
Why It Matters: Musk has been teasing the AI day on Twitter. In January, replying to a tweet seeking information about Tesla's Dojo supercomputer, a computer expected to help train Tesla's self-driving software, Musk had hinted plans to reveal more later in the year.
In April, he gave a more firm timeline of “July” for AI Day. Artificial Intelligence is key to Musk’s full self-driving goals and the company has been vocal about hiring in the area of hardware, neural networks, autonomy algorithms, coding and evaluation.
The Palo Alto, California-based company had a total of 70,757 employees as of 2020-end.
Price Action: Tesla shares closed 0.40% lower at $620/83 on Monday.
