    "Giannandrea will run Apple’s machine learning and AI strategy, and become one of 16 executives who report directly to its chief executive, Tim Cook," the report added.

    In a bid to catch up with its rival's artificial intelligence technology Apple has hired Google’s chief of search and artificial intelligence, John Giannandrea, reports New York Times.

    "Giannandrea will run Apple’s machine learning and AI strategy, and become one of 16 executives who report directly to its chief executive, Tim Cook," the report added.

    The hire is considered as a victory for Apple, as the Cupertino giant lagging its peers in artificial intelligence.

    “Our technology must be infused with the values we all hold dear,” Cook quoted as saying by the daily. “John shares our commitment to privacy and our thoughtful approach as we make computers even smarter and more personal.”

    Apple is lagging behind many in the AI technology and iPhone's digital assistant, Siri, is less effective than its counterparts at Google and Amazon.
