Apple Ramps Up Hiring of Generative AI Experts

Apple is hiring for at least a dozen new experts in generative artificial intelligence amid rumors that the company is stepping up its work on AI.

The Apple job listings, first spotted by TechCrunch, seek a range of machine learning specialists "passionate about building extraordinary autonomous systems" and began appearing on April 27. The openings are for positions in the Integrated System Experience, Input Experience NLP, Machine Learning R&D, and Technology Development Group.

Some of the roles, such as a Visual Generative Modeling Research Engineer, specifically involve work on "visual generative modeling to power applications across computation photography, image and video editing, 3D shape and motion reconstruction, avatar generation, and much more."

Following the launch of an official ChatGPT app for iPhone last week, it emerged that Apple has banned employees from using such utilities due to security concerns and work on its own similar technology. In March, DigiTimes reported that Apple is "re-examining" its work on artificial intelligence. The company is now believed to be testing generative AI concepts that could one day be destined for Siri.

I see many comments from people who do not have the necessary knowledge regarding A.I. nor work in the field saying that Apple is a few years behind. In fact, you have no idea what youʼre talking about.

If Apple is just starting this now then they are waaaay behind the curve. They should have been working on this for years already.

Apple overslept again. Less emoji more innovation.

I feel like Apple is so behind when it comes to AI. As usual, they are late. Google and Microsoft have already taken over.

My suggestion: Hire new experts to fix/revamp SIRI.

Seriously? Apple has been collaborating with Stanford University's AR/VR Laboratory for at least the last seven years. And in addition to Apple's own internal app development, they are no doubt working with at least a handful of trusted developers.

Do you really believe that during WWDC Tim Cook will walk out on stage with Apple's AR device and say something like: "Here it is y'all, our device. Not only do we not have any interesting apps, we have no idea what it will be used for. C'mon down and help give us a clue!"
