On the morning of January 4, Beijing time, it is reported that Google has poached Mira Lane, who has long been in charge of Microsoft's artificial intelligence ethics work, to join the company's technical and social issues team.
The move comes at a time when Google and the technology industry as a whole face ethical challenges because of increasingly complex artificial intelligence models.
Rehn previously led an integrated disciplinary team at Microsoft on issues related to ethical data collection, generative artificial intelligence data, face recognition and responsible product design. After joining Google, she will report to James James Manyika, who joined Google a year ago as senior vice president of technology and society. The fledgling team also attracted Srinivasan Venkatachary, the former head of Apple's search business.
Ryan himself has confirmed this. But a Google spokesman has yet to comment on Mr. Rehn's arrival.
In addition, there are reports that Microsoft and OpenAI are developing a version of AI chat robot ChatGPT for search engine Bing to challenge Google's search position.
Unlike competitors such as OpenAI, Google has yet to release chatbots that can talk to users and perform tasks for them. There are fears that the chatbot could be used to generate false information or offensive answers.
While some startups make eyeballs with related products, Google is particularly cautious. Executives of the company said at a recent staff meeting that they were not prepared to launch such a product because chatbots could damage the company's reputation.
