Apple set to join industry AI group
By Kate Bevan,
Apple is set to join other leading technology companies in the Partnership on AI, an industry consortium that works on establishing best practice with the emerging technology and co-ordinate education and outreach efforts.
Apple was one of the big names missing from the group when it was formed last autumn: the founder members were Google, Facebook, Amazon, IBM and Microsoft. Other big tech industry players that havenít joined the group include Twitter, Baidu and Elon Muskís OpenAI research group.
Apple has always been notoriously secretive about what itís up to, but that started to change last year when it hired Russ Salakhutdinov, a leading AI researcher from Carnegie Mellon, who subsequently published Appleís first ever public AI paper.
