Apple to start publishing its AI research

Apple is about to start publishing some of its artificial intelligence research findings, breaking with the company’s usually stringent privacy, Business Insider reports. A series of tweets show that Russ Salakhutd, director of AI research at Apple and a professor at Carnegie Mellon University, announced the company’s policy reversal to attendees at the annual Neural Information Processing Systems conference. Apple has historically closely guarded its technological breakthroughs, forcing its employees to keep quiet in the name of protecting the company’s intellectual property while competitors like Facebook and Google allow their employees to publish their research findings in a number of fields. Apple’s secrecy has been a point of contention for years, hampering its ability to draw top talent who see publishing their work as a key component of career advancement.
