Apple combines machine learning and Siri teams under Giannandrea | TechCrunch
Apple is creating a new AI/ML team that brings together its Core ML and Siri teams under one leader in John Giannandrea.

Apple confirmed this morning that the combined Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning team, which houses Siri, will be led by the recent hire, who came to Apple this year after an eight-year stint at Google, where he led the Machine Intelligence, Research and Search teams. Before that he founded Metaweb Technologies and Tellme.

The internal structures of the Siri and Core ML teams will remain the same, but they will now answer to Giannandrea. Apple’s internal structure means that the teams will likely remain integrated across the org as they’re wedded to various projects, including developer tools, mapping, Core OS and more. ML is everywhere, basically.

Ex-Googler Hired By Apple To Make Siri Smart | PYMNTS.com
Apple has announced that John Giannandrea is its Chief of Machine Learning and AI Strategy, reporting to CEO Tim Cook. Joining Apple in 2018, Giannandrea oversees the strategy for artificial intelligence and machine learning across the company and development of Core ML and Siri technologies.

Prior to Apple, he spent eight years at Google, where he led the Machine Intelligence, Research and Search teams. Before this, he co-founded two technology companies, Tellme Networks and Metaweb Technologies.

The new position brings together Apple’s Core ML and Siri teams under one leader, though the internal structures of each team will stay the same, according to reports. The teams will likely be integrated across the company as they work together on various projects, including developer tools, mapping, Core OS and more. Though the Siri and ML teams evolved separately, it makes sense to have one person oversee both. The move was made to help give its voice assistant a boost, since it has never quite lived up to the potential envisioned for it.

The real surprise is more that this wasn't done sooner, but maybe they needed him to find his way around.

(Looks like it could be worth setting up a flashlight shortcut for Siri once you get iOS 12:)

Apple Is Building a Media Platform Like Never Before – MacStories
Have you ever watched the construction of a new building while knowing nothing about what the finished product would be? You track its progress a piece at a time, clueless about the end goal until finally there comes a point when, in a single moment, suddenly it all makes sense.
Apple's media ambitions have been like that for me.
In recent years, Apple has taken a variety of actions in the media space that seemed mostly disconnected, but over time they've added up to something that can't be ignored.
