            Google Terminates Contract With Appen For Search Quality Raters

In a recent announcement, Appen disclosed a notification from Google LLC, received on January 20, 2024, to cancel its global inbound services contract.

This would end Appen services provided to Google by March 19, 2024.

The company is a source of search engine evaluators (quality raters) for Google, as noted in recent job listings from the company.

The job listings were likely posted before Google let Appen know about its decision to cancel services.

It’s unclear what this announcement means for the Search Quality Rater program, but the guidelines were last updated in November 2023.

The announcement from Appen comes after Google layoffs in several departments, with more to come, according to its CEO, Sundar Pichai. The effort is to help the company reach its goals in artificial intelligence development.

The news has impacted Appen stock on the ASX market, which is now at an all-time low.
