In 2016, Apple has invested $ 1 billion in Didi Chuxing, chinese company a direct competitor of Uber. According to a new report published by Recode, the Didi Chuxing is set to open in California, near the campus of Apple, a laboratory dedicated to the automatic driving of the car.
The Didi would have, therefore, decided to bring its development operations in the United States, specifically in the Mountain View, California, near the campus of Apple. Given the recent investment by $ 1 billion from Apple, it is very likely that chinese engineers of the Didi will work closely with the company to Tim Cook.
This workshop will focus on the development of new solutions for the automatic driving of vehicles and advanced systems of artificial intelligence. Compared to Apple, which at the moment would be by developing “only” a platform of this type, the Didi would like to make a real car with auto-pilot, to be used for the fleet offers for agl users of the service in the style of Uber.
Recently, Didi has also hired Charlie Miller, a security expert who will guide the teams working on the systems of automatic driving, so as to ensure maximum protection in the event of hacker attacks. We will see what will be and if there will be benefits even for Apple, that with that investment he also spoke of the common development of future strategies with the Didi.
