MIT Technology Review: Baidu’s Plan for Artificial Intelligence without Andrew Ng

MIT Technology Review: Baidu’s Plan for Artificial Intelligence without Andrew Ng. “When Andrew Ng, one of the world’s leading thinkers on artificial intelligence, announced he would be stepping down from his position as chief scientist at Chinese search giant Baidu, the company’s stock dropped nearly 3 percent in just a few hours. It was a reflection not only of Ng’s prominence and fame, but also of the importance investors have placed on the search giant’s focus on AI. The technology has become a key element of the company’s strategy, and Ng’s departure comes at a time when Baidu is determined to double down on its AI efforts.”
