Apple is enlarging its Seattle engineering center to focus on machine learning and AI
If you don't happen to know that Tim Cook & Co. have an office in Seattle, then you're not alone. The Two Union Square skyscraper that hosts the office doesn't even have Apple's name listed on its main directory. However, a big portion of Cupertino's R&D in the fields of machine learning and AI is done at the two floors that the tech giant currently leases. Soon, the company will acquire more space in order to accommodate staff from Turi - an AI and machine learning startup, which Apple bought last year for about $200 million.
Guestrin went on to describe Seattle as a place with great potential for AI. The city is home to the headquarters of Microsoft and Amazon, the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence and the University of Washington. When asked about Apple's approach for the technology, Guestrin was a bit vague, but said that his team will be doing a combination of short- and long-term AI research, developing features for upcoming gadgets across “the whole spectrum.”
