Giannandrea has helped integrate AI into a variety of Google products such as Gmail, Search, and the Google Assistant.

While Google has a "deep bench" in AI, the move is still a loss for Google and a win for Apple.

According to a report, Apple has hired Giannandrea to lead the company's machine learning and AI strategy.

Critics have long held that Apple has lagged behind competitors when it comes to its AI capabilities, and nowhere is this more evident than in Siri.

Google's Senior VP of Engineering John Giannandrea (L) and TechCrunch moderator Frederic Lardinois speak onstage during TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2017 at Pier 48 on September 19, 2017 in San Francisco, California.

As Alexa and Google Assistant hog the limelight with their intelligence, Apple finds itself on the back foot - especially after launching its HomePod smart speaker with a version of Siri inferior to that on iPhones and Macs.

Blogger and Apple commentator John Gruber said that Giannandrea's appointment may come to be regarded as "one of the most significant Apple executive hires ever".

On Monday, it was revealed in a report from The Information that Mr. Giannandrea would be "unexpectedly stepping down" as Google's AI chief - making him a free agent or as The New York Times put it best, "perhaps the most eligible tech executive on the market". In an email message to staff that wound up in the hands of the New York Times, Cook said that Giannandrea "shares our commitment to privacy and our thoughtful approach", speaking on the company's thus far slow and cautious approach to expanding its AI programs.

In the February release of the Singular ROI Index, Apple did rank as one of the top five-performing search ad companies, rising from No 23 in 2016 to No. 6 in 2017 on iOS.

While Apple wants to explore building services with neural networks, it wants to do so without compromising the privacy of user data. This study supports data from about $1 billion in revenue, 315 million installs, 1,700 apps, and 1,200 mobile media partners. He's now in charge of Google's entire AI unit and will now focus on how AI will be implemented across its products. Also, Apple took quite some time to join an AI research group called the "Partnership on AI" co-founded by Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook and IBM.

It should be noted that engineers with AI expertise are highly sought after in Silicon Valley, and Apple has made a number of high profile hirings of late in the AI field.
