Apple hired a former head of development of artificial intelligence in Google John Gianandrea.
What is known
Apple has long been trying to reason with their own artificial intelligence, and the transition of Gianandrea is a great success. According to The New York Times, the AI expert will be subordinate to Apple CEO Tim Cook, and will play the role of the leader of "machine learning and AI strategy."
Apple though and set the fashion for voice assistants, but lagged behind in the race. Now the company will have the resources and talents to develop in the field of AI on a par with its competitors. Also with the accession of Gianandrea, Apple can attract more top developers in the field and improve its own algorithms.
