DeepMind co-founder Mustafa Suleyman now leads Microsoft AI

Mustafa Suleyman

In the world of artificial intelligence, big brands are searching for people to head their AI divisions. For example, Apple recently purchased a company called Darwin AI and brought over some of its workers to head its AI division. Well, Microsoft just established Microsoft AI, and it hired DeepMind co-founder Mustafa Suleyman.

This is another example of large companies hiring top minds from their competitors. Back in 2010, Suleyman founded DeepMind. After leaving the company several years later and joining Google, he then co-founded Inflection AI in 2019.

Microsoft hires Mustafa Suleyman to head Microsoft AI

With AI being such a major subject with big companies, many Enterprises are finding themselves shuffling their business structures and adding full AI divisions where none existed. It’s obvious that Microsoft has gone all in on AI. So, it has a large team dedicated to pushing AI forward. Now, according to a new report, the company has a new AI division called Microsoft AI.

It brought on Suleyman as the CEO of Microsoft AI. So, he will oversee Copilot, Bing, and Edge. He will definitely be a higher-up, as he will be reporting directly to Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft. So, the future of  Microsoft’s AI Endeavors will rest In His Hands.

However, he will not be alone. Fellow inflection AI co-founder Karén Simonyan will also join the team. He’ll take on the role of Chief scientist. Suleyman stated that several Inflection AI employees have also joined Microsoft. However, it appears that that might not be the case. Reports say that Microsoft may have hired the majority of Inflection AI’s staff, which doesn’t sound great for the company.

Inflection AI made a blog post explaining what the company wants to do going forward. The company is going to focus more on its AI Studio business. It appears that Inflection AI wants to focus more on this product as a business tool rather than a consumer tool. The company’s work so far makes it “uniquely well placed to be the AI platform for businesses around the world.”

Also, the company is currently searching for a new CEO. So, hopefully, Inflection AI doesn’t suffer any significant losses because of the shake-up. If you are a person who follows Inflection AI, you’ll be happy to know that it will host Inflection 2.5 on Microsoft Azure sometime down the road.

As for Microsoft, we are still in the dark as to what will change, what will improve, and what will be made worse. So, we’re just going to have to wait to find out what this new Microsoft AI division will bring.
