WIRED: You gave a research talk about building new kinds of computers to power machine learning.W: Mustafa Suleyman, a cofounder of DeepMind, the London AI startup that’s part of Alphabet and a major player in machine learning research, recently moved over to Google.
“New machine learning capabilities or research results might enable us to do new things that Google doesn't now,” says Dean.
