Apple recently scored the hottest free agent in AI when it managed to lure Ian “The GANfather” Goodfellow away from his highly-salaried perch at Google.
His hiring indicates Apple’s placing a higher priority on machine learning technology.
And it may tell us a little about the Cupertino company’s next big product.
Little is currently known about the circumstances surrounding Goodfellow’s move from Google, where he worked twice with a stint at OpenAI in between, to Apple.
A safe bet would be to say he’s building a better autonomous vehicle.
And probably not your run-of-the-mill Tesla-Autopilot-type either.
