Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

Apple Inc. is strengthening its presence in Austin in the field of artificial intelligence, as reported by Bloomberg News. A group of approximately 120 employees from San Diego, working in the unit known as Data Operations Annotations, is set to relocate to Austin, Texas. The employees were informed by the tech giant about the merger with the Texas-based segment of the group, emphasizing the unit's involvement in data operations for artificial intelligence and Siri, Apple's virtual assistant.

According to Bloomberg's sources, the employees in San Diego were notified that they would face termination if they are unable to transfer to Austin. The plans have not been publicly announced, and the information is based on anonymous sources that asked not to be identified, cited by Bloomberg.

Dorie 120 jobs are not a lot of jobs, but I have a feeling there will be more to follow.

Dorie Dillard Austin TX - I'll be heading out to Austin soon. With all these new big companies moving to Austin, I better plan to leave early enough to avoid delays or being late.

Hi Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP ...its more our road construction that is causing delays. I'm headed out in the morning for a cruise out of Fort Lauderdale and will see what traffic is like going to the airport.

Austin definitely seems like the place to be!  One of my favorite companies moved their headquarters to Austin as well.

Austin is quickly becoming one of the nation's tech hubs, Dorie.  It should be beneficial for the community.

Hi Dorie:

Interesting news for sure, but perhaps not a big surprise given the tech growth Austin has been seeing. Sounds remote work is not an option...I wonder how may will make the move. That's an expensive move for Apple depending on what relocation package they offer their employees.

I hope you are having a wonderful cruise!
