Re: Apple
Intersesting to see Apple come out with the AI publication. It would not only be an interesting read, but a good recruiting tool and public relations item in the competitive and popular AI arena.

Re: Apple
I believe it has been effective. Also, I think that the fact that Apple is now following the model is the best indicator that the strategy works. Otherwise, Apple would have never wasted its time launching the Machine Learning Journals in hopes to attract talent and startups in the AI field.

Re: Apple
Yes, Susan, I was wondering if they found it an effective recruiting tool! In today's competitive tech market anything that attracts talent is worthwhile.

Re: Apple
In hiring talent, you mean? I imagine it has. I don’t know how many people they have hired since then. I know they have successful and innovative teams working in great projects, though.

Re: Apple
Interesting I didn't hear about Airbus. I know this is prominent in other areas that have developer access sites in an effort to share and encourage collaboration. Has the effort with Airbus been successful?

Re: Apple
Daniel – Apple’s advances in AI are showing in Siri, which is the first contact one can have with Apple’s AI efforts. Siri has had lots of improvements since its beginnigs. I have fluid conversation with Siri and find him (yes, my Siri is an Englishman :) really useful in many occasions. Apple is going to deploy improved AI not only in all the devices but also in an autonomous car, AppleHome, and other applications.

Re: Race for talent
Scott – Yes. I have to admit that it surprised me from Apple. Not long ago I said that if Apple was working on something big they were going to keep it secret. What I am guessing is that perhaps Apple has seen that the strategy is working well for Airbus and others, and wanted to give it a go. They might have seen that the best talent goes the Airbus way and not to Apple, for example, so they may have opened up for that reason among others. Because, another reality is that Millennials are looking for job opportunities is a different way than previous generations did. That’s another reason Apple perhaps has considered. So, just one post for now. I am really looking forward to seeing what else comes out from this new experiment from Apple.

Re: Apple
This is certainly not part of the Apple playbook. But while it could take a long time for there to be "wow" or "magic" type of Apple AI, this journal allows early adopters to be satiated. I would not be surprised if Apple will want to court 3rd part developers in the future for its AI platform. Maybe this is a step towards that.

Re: Race for talent
@Susan: All very good points, and what makes its interesting is that it's Apple doing this, which kind of validates the while process. It also shows that Apple is starting to change and not rely on its secrecy and marketing to create a future for the company.

Re: Apple
Maryam – No, it’s not really a novel concept to attract talent. I would say Apple came a bit late into this strategy. Airbus has been doing this exact thing since the beginning of January. So Apple is more than six months behind in this way of attracting talent to its pool. Perhaps they have been deliberating and considering if Apple was willing to expose their engineering efforts publicly in the way Airbus and others were already doing.
