  • Google’s VP and engineering fellow, Geoffrey Hinton, resigned from the company in April.

It’s no secret that Google has been ramping up AI development to put out products that can compete with the likes of ChatGPT, Bing, and other AI models. But the way Google is going about this pursuit has led to a very high-profile exit from the company.

Google’s VP and engineering fellow, Geoffrey Hinton, told the New York Times that he resigned from Google in April. Nicknamed the “godfather of AI,” Hinton’s departure is a big blow for the tech giant being one of the most prominent figures in the industry.
