Apple Employee Quits to Join Microsoft

Microsoft has hired a former Apple employee to lead the Microsoft AI division. Bill Stasior, who was the former head of Apple’s Siri division and had been with Apple since 2012. He has left Apple to join the artificial intelligence division of Microsoft.

He will be joining Microsoft later this month. He is expected to report to Chief Technology Officer Kevin Scott. In fact, it appears to be a similar status akin to what Apple had done in the past. We would like to take our readers to 2018 when Apple had hired John Giannandrea from Google to take care of its Search and AI division. Now Microsoft seems to have paid them back in the same coin.

It would be interesting to notice that just like Apple, even Microsoft has been lagging behind when it comes to consumer AI development in comparison to Google and Amazon. However, it would be interesting to note that Stasior would not be working on Cortana. In any case, Microsoft has been making full swing efforts at making Cortana more of a business-oriented offering than the personal assistant like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

The ex Siri executive will be leading the AI group, but there is no exact information available on what will he be working on. A Microsoft spokesperson has confirmed the news through an email to the prominent media houses stating that “Starting in August, he will work to help align technology strategies across the company,”.

Stasior has made the comment on his personal blog. However, he was not available for any comment.
