In a strategic move to accelerate its advances in artificial intelligence, Google has combined its two premier AI research labs, Google Brain and DeepMind, into a single unit called Google DeepMind. In an era where AI technology is evolving exponentially, Google believes this consolidation will drive significant progress and deliver transformative AI products and solutions, shaping the future of industries and societies alike. The decision also strategically positions Google to compete with rivals such as Microsoft and OpenAI in the fiercely competitive AI industry. Google DeepMind will be led by a newly established scientific board and will draw on the combined expertise of the existing Google Brain and DeepMind teams. The formation of Google DeepMind also signifies Google's commitment to tackle some of the toughest scientific and engineering challenges of our time. As AI continues to play a critical role in delivering Google's mission, this bold step aims to create a future where AI systems are more capable, safe, and responsible.
