Musk wrote on Twitter over the weekend that Tesla is looking for AI developers to help advance the car company's autonomous driving technology.

"Tesla will soon have over a million connected vehicles worldwide with sensors & compute needed for full self-driving," Musk wrote, saying the combined data will be "orders of magnitude more than everyone else combined, giving you the best possible dataset to work with."

He also announced that he'll host a hackathon for prospective team members at his home next month.

"A PhD is definitely not required. All that matters is a deep understanding of AI and ability to implement NNs in a way that is actually useful (latter point is what’s truly hard)," he replied to one user. "Don’t care if you even graduated high school."
