The new organization, called Google DeepMind, will be led by Demis Hassabis (current CEO of DeepMind). Jeff Dean (co-founder of Google Brain) will be the chief scientist of the new organization.
- Hooray for stepping out of the limelight
- DeepMind's CEO helped take AI mainstream. Now he's urging caution.
- DeepMind reportedly lost a yearslong bid to win more independence from Google
- "One suggestion from DeepMind’s founders was apparently for the company to have the same legal structure as a nonprofit, 'reasoning that the powerful artificial intelligence they were researching shouldn’t be controlled by a single corporate entity, according to people familiar with those plans.' But Google wasn’t on board with this, telling DeepMind it didn’t make sense considering how much money the company has poured into DeepMind."
