Apple had invested $1 billion in Didi Chuxing final yr.
The corporate will probably be running at the generation at the back of self-driving automobiles at its new lab like AI-based safety for transportation and clever riding methods. It has already poached many engineers from Uber and Google to paintings for it. This comprises Charlie Miller from Uber and Jio Zhaoyin from Google’s Waymo arm.
Mountain View could also be the house to many different self-driving firms and startups together with Google’s Waymo and Uber. Whilst Didi Chuxing is operating by itself self-driving generation, it appears not likely to me that the corporate will collaborate with Apple on it in spite of the latter making an investment $1 billion in it.
