    To study, think and articulate the development work practices of AI and related technologies, to contribute to the understanding of these technologies by the general public, and to underpin discussion and commitment on AI and its influence on man and society, are the missions of this Partnership on AI.

    The mentioned companies are obviously specialists in these fields, whether in terms of face recognition, vocal assistants, discussion robots, automatic learning algorithms, etc.

    Official statement:
    Apple, also present in these fields of action, shows at the same time a certain ambition in the matter, with probably future projects focused artificial intelligence.

    Siri should be improved for example in the coming years , while the Apple Car project could also benefit from AI research, with the rumor of the developing driving software for cars.
