Slippery Situations: Tesla's Sticky Pedal Recall and AI's Accelerating Progress

   In this episode, we delve into Tesla's recent recall of nearly 4,000 Cybertrucks, stemming from an accelerator pedal issue where a lubricant (soap) used during assembly may cause the pedal to stick, risking entrapment above the pedal. This problem affects all Model Year 2024 Cybertrucks manufactured between November 13, 2023, and April 4, 2024, and notably, cannot be corrected with Tesla's typical over-the-air updates, requiring physical servicing instead. Alongside this, we explore the rapid advancements in AI, highlighting a new report that positions AI as surpassing human performance in most benchmarks, suggesting the need for new ways to measure AI capabilities as it continues to evolve at an astonishing pace.
