While Siri isn’t the best of introductory letters, Apple is still one of the big companies when it comes to artificial intelligence. And your efforts and investments are more important than they appear. In the end, Apple is one of the few to bet on an AI capable of preserving our privacy.
And Siri is just the tip of the iceberg. Artificial intelligence is already present in many Apple products. From iPhone or iPad, to AirPods or HomePod mini, everyone uses some form of AI-based technology
So when Apple takes measures to continue strengthening its teams, they should be applauded. Because that means they still bet on private AI, but practical in every way. And it will remain so when Samy Bengio joins to the Cupertino company.
For a time, Samy Bengio was the leader of the Google team dedicated to ethics in artificial intelligence. Until a Google reorganization, that involved leading hundreds of researchers at Google Brain. And now, will lead a new research unit for Apple
Interestingly, and as they share from Reuters, Giannandrea was also part of Google for several years. Specifically, before leading Apple’s efforts in the field of artificial intelligence, he was responsible for research and AI at Google. And now the two will be reunited again.
Among Bengio’s most significant achievements, we find Progress in Deep Learning Algorithms. These have become a key part of the image, speech, and other data analysis programs we use so commonly today.
