Apple Swift Head Becomes Tesla Autopilot SW Lead

Tesla welcomes Chris Lattner joining the company as VP of Autopilot Software. He comes to Tesla after 11 years at Apple where he was primarily responsible for creating Swift, the programming language for building apps on Apple platforms. Prior to Apple, Chris was lead author of the LLVM Compiler Infrastructure, an open source umbrella project that is widely used in commercial products and academic research today.

Tesla believes that the new appointment will accelerate the future of autonomous driving.
