Artificial Intelligence guru Andrew Ng, founder of the Google Brain project and Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at Stanford, has left US$57 billion search engine Baidu amid mystery as to his next steps.
However, he has hinted at his continued fascination and commitment to the field. In his words;
“AI is the new electricity. Just as electricity transformed many industries roughly 100 years ago, AI will also now change nearly every major industry — healthcare, transportation, entertainment, manufacturing — enriching the lives of countless people. I am more excited than ever about where AI can take us.”
Whatever he does, it’s going to be fascinating.
