  • Founded in 2010 and bought by Google in 2014, DeepMind specializes in building advanced AI systems to mimic the way human brains work, an approach known as deep learning. 
    • Its long-term goal is to build an advanced level of AI that can perform a range of cognitive tasks as well as any human. 
    • “Guided by safety and ethics, this invention could help society find answers to some of the world’s most pressing and fundamental scientific challenges,” DeepMind says on its website.
    • On a video call last month with DeepMind staff, co-founder Demis Hassabis said the unit’s effort to negotiate a more autonomous corporate structure was over, according to people familiar with the matter. He also said DeepMind’s AI research and its application would be reviewed by an ethics board staffed mostly by senior Google executives.
  • Alphabet’s approach to AI is closely watched because the conglomerate is seen as an industry leader in sponsoring research and developing new applications for the technology. 
    • The technology has attracted the attention of governments, such as the European Union, which has promised to regulate it.
    • Google said DeepMind co-founder Mustafa Suleyman, who moved to Google last year, sits on that oversight board. DeepMind said its chief operating officer, Lila Ibrahim, would also be joining the board, which reviews new projects and products for the company.
