Discussion on: Tesla Pushes Out Dangerous Software Update, Bungles Rollback Attempt

At the end of the day, beyond thinking about what is responsible, beyond the big picture of it all, I'm definitely curious about the rollout/rollback approach of this sort of thing in general. It's all familiar in software, but also brand new. Q/A in autonomous driving must be fascinating.

It would be super interesting to see the footage from all of the erroneous manoeuvres.

From that single clip on the second reddit post I would immediately be looking at how it recognised that black and yellow end stop on the barrier as that would have been right in the cars vision and is the sort of thing I would expect a computer to get confused by (as I imagine it can easily result in an incorrect depth perception).

It would also be interesting to see if this was an engineer who botched or their machine learning (ML) that made this mistake.

As I said pure speculation and probably complete b****cks but thought I would say it to see if anyone else has some better theories / knows the Tesla software model better so I can be educated 🀣
