The leaders in these domains not only shape the path for technologies but refine them to an extent that it gets infused easily in an average human mind.

With the recent backlash on Facebook, Google & Microsoft making User data accessible for Private firms to manipulate, with European Union even stepping towards to charge a digital tax for these firms, Apple appointment make even more exciting who is committed to building a leakproof, privacy-focused AI machine.

April Fool's Day 2018: Know how it all started
While Chaucer probably meant 32 days after March (May 2), many readers seemingly took the line to mean March 32 - or April 1. Based on my email inbox, numerous brands have settled on the same workaround: Just start their jokes early.

VP of Core Search Ben Gomes is looking at a promotion in the former department, whereas artificial intelligence is getting its own separate unit, to be managed by renowned computer scientist Jeff Dean, who's been with Google for almost two decades now. The hire is an absolute victory for Apple. In terms of quality, Apple Siri is way behind Google Assistant, which uses the same ground-breaking algorithms that power Google Translate and Google search image.

Considered a highly desired executive, especially as A.I. seems to steadily grow in prevalence and importance, John Giannandrea will help spearhead Apple's machine learning and A.I. strategy.

Grab acquires Uber: What this means for the 500+ employees involved
Grab provides services in Singapore , Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia. Grab said Monday that Uber will take a 27.5 per cent stake and a seat on its board as part of the deal .

The hire of the 53-year-old Scot may signal a new approach at Apple in terms of the company's engagement with the research community, but it is unlikely to see Apple step completely in-line with its rivals. (However, it is a pared-down version from the Siri that lives on your iPhone.) Google Assistant is now far more capable of understanding the world around it, despite being launched five years later. He will also report directly to the company's CEO, Tim Cook.

Giannandrea joined Google in 2010 when the search giant bought his company Metaweb, which was working on what's called a "knowledge graph" - a tool that gives direct answers to search queries. Last week, Windows' chief Terry Myerson departed after Microsoft announced that it would focus more on AI and the Cloud.

Jurgen Klopp UNHAPPY at facing Man City in Champions League
Rather than leaving that condition hanging in the air he quickly stressed that Liverpool's task is "unbelievably difficult". Although he has led Liverpool back into the Champions League , the German knows he must deliver trophies.

Giannandrea's hiring comes as Apple has recently faced criticism for Siri, the AI-based personal assistant built into products like Macs, iPhones, iPads, the Apple TV, and the HomePod. In fact, Google directly banned its employees from publishing any of their AI research. Machine learning experts are in high demand in Silicon Valley, with salaries often exceeding eight figures.
