Apple Cuts 200 Employees From Project Titan Autonomous Car Division
27 January, 2019, 15:43
Apple has cut more than 200 employees from its self-driving auto team, known internally as "Project Titan". Notably, these weren't all layoffs as a good number of employees have reportedly been shifted over to different project groups within the company. Per an Apple spokesperson, these reshuffled employees will still be involved in machine learning and other company projects.
An Apple spokesperson stated the company still sees "a huge opportunity with autonomous systems" but wants to turn their attention to other more pressing initiatives. Internally, Apple's new Project Titan management reprioritized segments of the project for 2019 and those on teams not needed were simply reassigned within the company. To Apple was returned last summer, Doug Field, who had recently played a Central role in vehicle development of the electric car-manufacturer Tesla.
Among the employees impacted by the restructuring process, some are moving to other departments.
