Tech giant Apple
has cut 200 staff from its autonomous vehicle (AV) programme, Project Titan, according to US media reports.
Apple is said to describe the changes to Project Titan as a restructuring move.
CNBC quotes a company spokesperson as insisting: “We continue to believe there is a huge opportunity with autonomous systems, that Apple has unique capabilities to contribute, and that this is the most ambitious machine learning project ever.”
The Apple representative continues: “We have an incredibly talented team working on autonomous systems and associated technologies at Apple. As the team focuses their work on several key areas for 2019, some groups are being moved to projects in other parts of the company, where they will support machine learning and other initiatives, across all of Apple.”
