“To better Prove this commitment, we’re unifying our efforts under ‘Google AI’, which encompasses all the state-of-the-art research happening across Google,” wrote Christian Howard, editor-in-chief of Google AI Communications.

Google also changed the homepage for Google AI so that it features published research on a variety of subject matters, stories of AI in action, and open source material and tools that others can use and develop further. The old Google Research site redirects to the new Google AI site.

I even Suggest those who are planning to choose carriers in these sectors to observe the market learn and gain knowledge.
