    Work on the ‌Apple Car‌ is winding down and many of the people that were working on the car will move to Apple’s artificial intelligence division to work on generative AI under AI chief John Giannandrea.

    First the Wendy’s menu, now Apple. Everyone get on board the AI hype train!

      To be fair, those people were probably already working on models. It was just AI / ML for driving and car safety.

    They probably realized self-driving cars wont be a thing maybe ever.

    This push for self driving car push is so fucking regarded given that there are literally things a million times easier to automate like trams, ltr and trains, metro etc.

    Basically anything on rails.

          “Retarded” was once a medical and technical term. It’s not any more and has officially been redefined in dictionaries as abusive slur against people who have a serious medical condition… and you used it in the modern context.

          The word is socially unacceptable now. Stop using it.

            that’s retarded, I also haven’t used it, until now.

            “retarded” is also not a medical term, mental retardation and the like are medical terms, retard has a specific meaning, for example if your arm stops developing at a young age, then you have a retarded arm, it has also been used as a slur for the longest time, stop trying to police words because it might hurt someone’s feelings.
