John Giannandrea now in charge of Core ML and Siri

TechCrunch’s Matthew Panzarino on a shakeup in Apple’s organization which will put the company’s machine learning, AI, and Siri teams under the aegis of John Giannandrea:

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.

Giannandrea, you may remember, was hired away from Google back in April, where he had spent the last eight years, including working as the head of search. He reports directly to Tim Cook.

This bodes well for Apple’s machine learning and AI efforts, since it provides a unified leadership for those teams. Hopefully this means clearer, more concerted efforts in this department.
