Today Tesla will release a fully functional version of its Full Self Driving package, which is the result of a "fundamental rewrite," but only for private beta testers.
Last week, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced via Twitter that a limited beta will be released on Tuesday, October 20, in line with his earlier promises. He emphasized that a really small number of people who are experts and careful drivers will have access to it.

Today, a limited number of drivers will receive an update that should significantly change FSD. Tesla has been working diligently on a transition to a more complex AI framework that would improve the capabilities of Autopilot. If beta testing is successful, then Tesla owners who have purchased the FSD package will soon be able to use the full range of its advanced capabilities.
Deep learning systems used for applications such as autonomous driving are developed by training a machine learning model. Typically, the performance of the deep learning system is limited at least in part by the quality of the training set used to train the model.

"So, that architectural change, which has been underway for some time but has not really been rolled out to anyone in the production fleet, is what really matters for full self-driving," he continued.
Operating in 4D will be mind-blowingly advanced. Compared to your average automaker's driver-assist tech, 4D Autopilot isn't just a game-changer: It'll change the entire sport.
