Microsoft Strengthens Its AI Push with DeepMind Co-Founder Mustafa Suleyman’s Appointment

Microsoft is continuing its push into artificial intelligence (AI) with the addition of Mustafa Suleyman, co-founder of DeepMind and former head of Inflection, to its team. The company’s CEO, Satya Nadella, announced Suleyman’s appointment in a statement emphasizing the importance of bold innovation in the field.

Suleyman will lead Microsoft AI alongside Karén Simonyan, another Inflection co-founder. The two will focus on advancing AI tools like Copilot as well as other consumer products and research in the field. Several members of the Inflection team are also joining Microsoft, bringing with them expertise and experience in AI research and product development.

This move is expected to strengthen Microsoft’s collaboration with OpenAI, a strategic partnership that Nadella sees as essential for the company’s AI innovation. Kevin Scott will continue in his role as CTO and EVP of AI at Microsoft, overseeing AI strategy and partnerships. Rajesh Jha will lead the development of Copilot for Microsoft 365 in collaboration with Suleyman and his team.

Microsoft’s focus on AI innovation reflects its commitment to pushing the boundaries of technology and making it accessible to everyone. This strategic move positions Microsoft as a leader in AI development and sets the stage for future advancements in the field. While Google’s DeepMind has been a pioneer in AI, Microsoft’s alliance with OpenAI has allowed it to make significant progress in generative AI despite competition from Google’s own Gemini assistant.
