Ap­ple made a real state­ment when it hired Google’s head of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence (AI) John

Gian­nan­drea. It’s now fol­lowed that up by de­cid­ing to merge his AI divi­sion with its ma­chine learn­ing (ML) team.

Gian­nan­drea worked at Google for eight years and led its ma­chine learn­ing ef­forts. Plac­ing him at the head of Ap­ple’s ma­chine learn­ing ef­forts sug­gests that the com­pany wants to drive its work for­ward in this de­vel­op­ing area.

Ap­ple’s ma­chine learn­ing divi­sion houses its Siri team, and this struc­ture will re­main the same de­spite the merger. Com­bin­ing ma­chine learn­ing with AI may help bring im­prove­ments from one to the other more quickly, thus help­ing Siri to bet­ter com­pete with its ri­vals from Ama­zon and Google (an area where it’s said to be trail­ing).
