Apple Hires Scientist Bengio, Who Left Google in Wake of AI Woes

Apple Inc. said it hired Samy Bengio, a respected research scientist who ended his 14-year career at Google after the company made the controversial decision to oust two women researchers who reported to him.

At Apple, Bengio will work under former colleague John Giannandrea, the senior vice president of machine learning and AI strategy. Apple declined to specify Bengio’s new role, but he most recently managed hundreds of researchers in the storied Google Brain artificial intelligence group at the Alphabet Inc. unit.
