Microsoft jettisons dozens of full-time MSN jobs in favor of Engineer AI

Microsoft this week cut many full-time staff members from its MSN news service, a significant number of them in senior positions, in a move further away from human editors and toward utilizing Engineer AI to curate stories.

The move comes six weeks after the Redmond-based innovation goliath told around 50 news creation contractual workers they would not be kept on by MSN beyond June 30. Full-time representatives were saved from those cuts, however, some MSN workers who were given up said household staff members and others all around were informed by con calls Monday that, as of now, their services were no longer required.
