The new rumor said that Apple is developing their own car, with the project name Titan. This is a mega project for Apple to enter the car industry. Many speculations said that Apple car will change the “face” of the car industry in the world. With all the things that Apple already has, to create a smart car with OS for the apps does not come as a surprise. Moreover, it is possible for them to make the car very smart in terms of self-driving feature.
Besides, they hired dozens of former Tesla’s employees. This week, Apple hired an Artificial Intelligence Expert from Nvidia, Jonathan Cohen. As it’s seen on his Linkedin account, at this moment he’s working on a software with Apple. It’s not mentioned in detail what software is that, but if we see his previous position in the company where he came from (Nvidia), he’s a part of the team that developed deep learning GPU for a car. Cohen was at this year’s Consumer Electronic Show discussing how Nvidia’s tech is used in self-driving cars.
These things make the rumor about the Apple car stronger. According to the rumor, Apple car will be released in 2019. It means that Apple has times to make the carOS, Smart Siri for car, and of course beautiful design from Jony Ive.
