A former Apple employee has been accused of stealing the company's self-driving car secrets and trying to flee to China with them. Xiaolang Zhang worked on Apple's driverless car project but allegedly planned to move to Chinese autonomous vehicle start-up Xiaopeng Motors, the company says in court documents.
Xiaopeng Motors says it did not receive any "sensitive information" from Mr Zhang and said it was co-operating with the FBI. According to the court documents, Mr Zhang was hired in to develop software and hardware for Apple's autonomous vehicle project. However, after visiting China in April he told his supervisor he planned to move to the country to work for Xiaopeng Motors. The supervisor informed Apple's security team, which found that Zhang had downloaded "copious pages of information" from secret databases and had taken hardware from its autonomous vehicle lab, the court documents allege.
The FBI said the data taken included "engineering schematics, technical reference manuals, and technical reports". Mr Zhang is accused of downloading a page "blueprint" for a self-driving car circuit board to his personal computer. About 2, "core employees" have access to the technical databases Mr Zhang is accused of accessing. He is also accused of taking circuit boards and a computer server from Apple's self-driving vehicle hardware lab.
According to the court documents, Mr Zhang admitted to stealing the information during an interview in June. He also admitted using AirDrop to send sensitive content from his own device to his wife's Macbook, they allege. In a statement, Apple said: It found a 'significant evidence of a trend' where police officers detain women in order to rape them.
A version of the report had similar results, including a serious problem with sexual violence by police officers in a country which has one of the highest recorded rates of rape in the world. And while South African Police Service management is attempting to deal with the problem, it is with limited success. The report said a typical case involved an officer stopping a young woman in a public place, before taking her away to be raped in the back of a police vehicle. Pretoria News reported in July , that almost 1 serving police officers had criminal records as shown on the table below — this is more than one in every sworn officers.
The newspaper reported that the shadow minister of police, Diane Koehler Barnard of the Democratic Alliance, had said that the police were, in effect, admitting that their service was 'populated with murderers, rapists, fraudsters and other offenders'. The number of complaints made to the Independent Police Investigative Directorate by the category of complaint and the number the IPID says have been successfully handled by some form of disciplinary action.
