Tesla is taking its self-driving future into its own hands, which Elon Musk thinks will help usher the company into an era of fully autonomous vehicles in just two years.

Musk confirmed the company has a team hard at work developing its own AI chips, which future Teslas will depend on in place of the Nvidia units currently used in the automaker’s all-electric vehicles.

The new AI processor will be used to power the Autopilot system, which Musk projected will be able to handle fully-self driving tasks in two years and will be an order of magnitude better than humans in three, according to someone at the party.

We don’t know how close the new chip is to being ready for use in Tesla’s all-electric vehicles, and the automaker’s reps didn’t respond to our requests for more details about the project.
