With the boom in AI affecting virtually every industry, there has been an explosion in the research and development of machine learning, a subfield of AI. And, perhaps, no system better illustrates what machine learning is capable of than Google’s DeepMind.

The startup was purchased in January 2014 by Google for a reported 400 million pounds, and Hassabis has taken the new role of vice president of engineering.
