Apple Hires Ex-Google AI Expert To Work in Its “Special Project” Team

The company is working to develop autonomous systems for vehicles, a project code-named "Titan" that requires top AI engineers, which explains Apple's back-to-back hiring of top executives from other major companies.

 In a race to gather top experts in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), another former Google employee, Ian Goodfellow, has been roped in by Apple to work in its intriguing “Special Project” team.

Goodfellow recently updated his LinkedIn profile to note that he is now working at Apple as a Director for Machine Learning (ML) at the company’s “Special Projects” group, The Verge reported on Thursday.

In April 2018, Apple also hired Goodfellow’s former boss, Google’s Head of AI John Giannandrea.
