Apple Hires Google's AI Chief, Tim Cook Touts His Commitment to Privacy
05 April, 2018, 01:03 | Author: Darrell Baldwin
The Google executive in charge of search and AI, John Giannandrea, is stepping down, to be replaced by two executives: Jeff Dean, the cofounder of Google Brain, will take over AI, while Ben Gomes, now in charge of search engineering, will lead the search business. However, John's now leaving Google and has accepted a new position at Apple. Giannandrea, who is an expert in machine learning, will apparently overseeApple's "machine learning and AI strategy" and report directly to CEO Tim Cook. According to arstechnica.com, Apple needs strong talent to improve its AI and ML efforts which lag behind its competitors like Amazon and Google. Apple's latest hire is a real doozie that sends a clear message that Siri will get it's act together because the SVP of Google Engineering behind the Google Assistant is now onboard.
Mr. Giannandrea helped integrate AI into Google's search platform, GMail, and Google Assistant, that company's digital assistant. When news broke yesterday that Giannandrea was unexpectedly stepping down as Google's AI chief, he immediately became perhaps the most eligible tech executive on the market.
Giannandrea's departure from his role as Google's AI chief was confirmed Tuesday.
Earlier this week, we reported on personnel changes within Google's search organization: Ben Gomes will now be in charge of all search, and Jeff Dean is taking on leadership of Google Brain and AI. Looking at the pace at which the counterparts are unlocking AI huge potential, Giannandrea's recruitment is a big catch for Apple. Apple hasn't released any sales figures for the smart speaker.
Giannandrea joined Google in 2010 following the search giant's acquisition of Metaweb, a firm where he was serving as chief technology officer. Giannandrea was instrumental in infusing AI into all of Google's main products, including search. Because of its stance on data collection, Apple still has no access to the massive data sets that Facebook and Google do. On the other hand, Apple wants to improve its AI algorithm with a strict stand against data breach. Apple's vision has always been to make Siri the ultimate personal assistant, and Giannandrea is the key to doing that, applying his AI smarts and expertise to bring machine learning to the actual machine you're using and keep it there.
