Google AI leader defects to Apple

Sharing is Caring!

Apple has hired Samy Bengio, a prominent AI researcher who previously worked at Google. Bengio will lead “a new AI research unit” within Apple, according to a recent report in Reuters. He is just the latest in a series of prominent AI leaders and workers Apple has hired away from the search giant.

Bengio will work directly under John Giannandrea, Apple’s senior vice president of machine learning and AI strategy. Giannandrea himself used to lead AI at Google (he worked there for eight years) before jumping ship to work at Apple in 2018. We interviewed him at length last year about the growing role of machine learning in Apple’s software and services.
