Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk recently joked on Twitter about it being wild if a "car company" ends up having the most powerful supercomputer on earth.
This was in response to him saying the company would ramp up the rollout of Dojo, the company's autonomous vehicle training supercomputer that is being phased in next year.

During Tesla's Autonomy Day event, the company shared its dissatisfaction with current powerful compute offerings.
Musk said the company needs hardware solely focused on the task of labeling data for its self-driving software, and so Tesla is going to design what it needs in-house.
Dojo will also presumably be used to power Tesla's robot assistant AI. The robot, known as Optimus for now, is expected to be unveiled at Tesla's AI Day 2 event in September.
