In 2018, Google announced it had hired Andrew Moore as the head of artificial intelligence (AI) at Google Cloud. He was tasked with leading all AI efforts and taking the cloud company to new frontiers in its efforts to democratize AI technology. The Google press release on the announcement of his hire read: “We believe if we can get every developer in the world using AI in great ways, we can spur innovation that will benefit everyone.”
There is no better champion of this cause than Moore, who was cherry-picked from one of the most prestigious schools in this field—Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science. For more than four years, Moore served as Dean of the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, bringing his expertise and passion to teaching young minds eager to do good in the world, using science and technology as their foundation.
He has said many times, “I am passionate about the impact of technology on the future of society.” That impact has never been more present than it is today, and C2C was eager to talk to him about his story, his goals, and how he sees his legacy unfolding as he evolves in his role at Google Cloud.
