Tesla sacks almost 200 Autopilot employees who helped train the company's AI

Tesla cuts jobs to reduce headcount

Tesla has laid off 195 members of staff who worked on training its autopilot AI to reduce its headcount by 10%, says The Verge.

According to TechCrunch, "most of the “layoffs” that began in the end of May were, in reality, terminations based on performance."

This doesn't come as a surprise after US regulator, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that Teslas accounted for 273 of 392 crashes to where vehicles were in driver-assist modes, including a full self-driving mode.
