🍎🔍 Apple is searching for talented individuals in generative AI!

May 19 2023 | AI News
Apple is seeking experts in generative AI, having posted at least 12 job adverts on its site. The company is looking for machine learning specialists focused on autonomous systems, particularly those skilled in “visual generative modelling to power applications across computational photography, image and video editing, 3D shape and motion reconstruction, [and] avatar generation”. The adverts follow recent mixed signals from CEO Tim Cook regarding the company’s position on generative AI: during Q2 earnings calls, he refrained from answering specific questions but said the company would be “deliberate and thoughtful” in its approach.

What does it mean?

  • Generative AI: a type of artificial intelligence in which the machine creates its own data and can learn and adapt from it without being explicitly pre-programmed.
  • Machine learning: a branch of artificial intelligence that enables machines to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed.
  • Autonomous systems: systems or machines that can operate without human intervention or control.
  • Visual generative modelling: a process of creating visual outputs such as images or videos using computer software algorithms.
  • Computational photography: the use of computation to enable or enhance digital photography.
  • 3D shape and motion reconstruction: the process of creating a digital model of a physical object or scene in 3D space using photos or videos.
  • Avatar generation: the creation of computer-generated characters that can interact with humans or other virtual characters.
If drinking from the AI firehose is too much, perhaps you'd like to subscribe to the Synthetic Work newsletter. The Free Edition of Synthetic Work is a non-technical, free, weekly newsletter written by a former Fortune 1000 tech executive and Gartner analyst to understand how AI is changing our jobs and the way we work.

You don't have to be an AI practitioner or a technologist to read Synthetic Work.

If you are too afraid to ask how artificial intelligence is transforming your line of work, your industry, our economy, and our society, this newsletter is for you. The Splendid Edition of Synthetic Work also contains a weekly report on:

  • how your peers are using AI in your industry (Education, Finance, Government, Health Care, Media & Entertainment, Tech, etc.)
  • what are life-changing AI tools that can enhance your productivity at work (tested or used by me personally)
  • why and when to use specific techniques (like prompting) to improve your interaction with the AI
