According to the source, Samy Bengio, one of the first heads of the Brain Team, which is engaged in research in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) in Google Research, will work at Apple. He left Google last month.
Bengio is expected to lead Apple’s new AI research division and will be led by John Giannandrea, senior vice president of machine learning and AI strategy. The source was informed about this by two people familiar with the matter. By the way, Giannandrea also joined Apple from Google. This happened in 2018. By that time, Giannandrea had worked at Google for about eight years.
Bengio spent fourteen years at Google. As head of the Brain Team, he developed the deep learning algorithms that underlie modern artificial intelligence systems for analyzing images, speech, and other data.
