Apple Officially Joins Tech Giant-Dominated Artificial Intelligence Research Group

Apple Officially Joins Tech Giant-Dominated Artificial Intelligence Research Group

According to the Partnership on AI, "Apple has joined the Partnership on AI as a founding member".

This is mainly due to the booming success of the various AI projects, that the company has released, the most popular of which is the company's very own Virtual Assistant, Siri, who first came to be in 2011, on Apple devices, and has been a success since that release date.

"We believe it's beneficial to Apple, our customers, and the industry to play an active role in its development and look forward to collaborating with the group to help drive discussion on how to advance AI while protecting the privacy and security of consumers".

This partnership on AI was first initiated in 2016 and includes a variety of tech-giants and industry leaders. At the tamest he company didn't jump in on the boat but that may be changing. While that name alone might conjure images of a shadowy group of villains plotting your demise in a sky-high tower, Amazon, DeepMind, Google, Facebook, IBM, and Microsoft insist their organization just wants to "maximize [the] potential [of AI] and ensure it benefits as many people as possible".

The Partnership on AI will hold its first meeting on February 3 in San Francisco, after which it plans to announce the initial areas of research it will undertake. The Partnership on AI said it will announce its initial program of research and activities "shortly after".
