    Microsoft has been hit by layoffs, cutting across virtually all its departments. At the beginning of 2023, the company CEO Satya Nadella announced that it would cut 10,000 jobs by the end of FY23 Q3. The bloodbath continues with the most recent round of layoffs affecting the company's gaming department. 1900 people lose their jobs across Activision Blizzard, Xbox Game Studios, and ZeniMax Media.​

    Earlier this week, Microsoft announced another round of layoffs. This time, affecting 1,000 employees in its HoloLens 2 and Azure departments (via CNBC).

    Microsoft's big push for AI might be the problem​


    As it turns out, Microsoft is seemingly making these changes and layoffs to pave the way for its AI advances and efforts. In a leaked memo seen by Business Insider, executive Jason Zander indicated:​

    "Our clear focus as a company is to define the AI wave and empower all our customers to succeed in the adoption of this transformative technology. Along the way, we make decisions that align with our long-term vision and strategy while ensuring the sustainability and growth of Microsoft."

    This is not because AI is replacing their jobs
    Well in a sense its replacing.. If you think about Dev-ops about 5 years ago it was a big thing. now most of the task can be given to AI Agents. where we can reduce certain HR burdens.


    To achieve following we need to have lot of resources back in 2019's but now its all ai generated

    AI will replace humans in many jobs. However, Microsoft's layoffs are not happening because AI is replacing their jobs, but because of Microsoft's cost-cutting and shift of focus.

    They are laying off their XR department because Microsoft is partnering with Meta.
