Tesla CEO Elon Musk says FSD Beta V9.3 is much improved over V9.2.
The road to achieving fully autonomous driving is challenging and filled with tremendous development effort. Tesla is the first company in the world to strive to make its cars so smart that they can self-drive in any road situation, regardless of location. To achieve this, the manufacturer created the new FSD Beta, which has a long road of training and polishing before the software reaches the public.
In mid-August, Tesla released FSD Beta V9.2, which contained significant improvements over the previous version. Tesla CEO Elon Musk shared some technical details:
However, for a person who understands this much better than others, even these improvements are not impressive enough. On August 23, Musk tweeted that FSD Beta 9.2 is "actually not great." This does not mean that he is unhappy with this version and considers it bad in any sense. In fact, Musk sees it as another step towards making big improvements in future releases. The head of the company wrote that the Autopilot/AI team is rallying to improve FSD Beta as quickly as possible. He explained that the team is currently trying to create a single stack for both highways and city streets, but it requires massive neural network (NN) retraining.

Just drove FSD Beta 9.3 from Pasadena to LAX. Much improved!— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 24, 2021
Obviously, Tesla's Autopilot/AI team has had impressive success with the new version as they have received praise from Musk. Describing the technical details for V9.2 earlier, the head of the company wrote that the team aims to achieve a "clear-to-go boost through turns on minor-to-major roads (plan to expand to all roads in V9.3)." Perhaps the team managed to do it, which made Musk especially happy.
