Elon Musk livestreamed his drive with version 12 of FSD.
There was one intervention in a 50 minute drive. The car was stopped at an intersection and then started to move when the left turn lane light turned green.
They will release FSD v 12 alpha in shadow mode. It will then move to beta release to the public.
Elon says there is no line of code written for Tesla's FSD Beta that says slow down for speed bump or give clearance to bicyclist or stop at stop sign. This is all neural nets.
In 10 years we will look back at the first public demo of a robot that learned to move around the world by watching only videos.
This is a paradigm shift in how software is built.

Well, one intervention in 40 minutes, that is one intervention in… guess 15-25 miles? Which OS about the same rate of interventions that the current version 11.4.4 has. So no dramatic improvement…
Brian, could you take a look at the community fsd tracker? It seems that no Tesla blogger want to address the issue that FSD distance to intervention increases extremely slowly. Now, the percentage of rides without any intervention is levelling out at about 50%.
I don’t think you can really call it “full” self driving if it requires interventions that frequently. The whole POINT of FSD is lost if you have to pay attention the whole while, poised to snatch back control.
It won’t really be good enough until it requires interventions no more often than a new driver who’s qualified to drive on their own. Which is far from perfection, mind you, teens who have recently learned to drive have very high accident rates.
But if the “FSD” system requires somebody supervising, it hasn’t learned to drive yet.
