Google DeepMind's deep learning approach produces surprising results, demonstrating not just vast recall or the ability to compute faster than any human, but what many people would consider real creativity.
Mustafa Suleyman is cofounder and head of applied AI at DeepMind, where he is responsible for integrating the company’s technology across a wide range of Google products. In February 2016, he launched DeepMind Health, which builds clinician-led technology in the NHS. Prior to DeepMind's 2014 acquisition by Google, in its largest European acquisition to date, Mustafa served as DeepMind's chief product officer. At 19, Mustafa dropped out of Oxford University to help set up a telephone counseling service, building it to become one of the largest mental health support services of its kind in the UK, and worked as policy officer for then mayor of London Ken Livingstone. He went on to help start Reos Partners, a consultancy with eight offices across four continents specializing in designing and facilitating large-scale multistakeholder "Change Labs" aimed at navigating complex problems. As a skilled negotiator and facilitator, Mustafa has worked all over the world for a wide range of clients, such as the UN, the Dutch government, and WWF.
