DeepMind co-founder Mustafa Suleyman leaves Google

DeepMind cofounder Mustafa Suleyman is leaving Google to join venture capital firm Greylock Partners.

Suleyman joined Google in 2014 when the search giant acquired DeepMind, a cutting-edge AI research lab for USD 650 million. He was Google’s vice president of product management and policy for AI.

Suleyman is not an AI researcher by training. He was instrumental in pushing the company into health care research and was vocal about not using AI technology for military applications. Mustafa led teams inventing and deploying cutting edge AI systems to accurately detect breast cancer in mammograms, diagnose 50 different eye diseases in OCT scans, and to control Google’s multi-billion dollar data centers to optimize energy consumption.

“I think the thing that I really love about doing the investing that I’ve done is that I get the opportunity to spend time with people who are visionary and fearless, and that really energizes me. I’m definitely somebody who likes to take risks and try to learn from my mistakes and try to be fearless about that,” said Suleyman in a podcast with Greylock.

At Greylock, Suleyman now will work closely with early-stage AI companies to push the frontiers of innovation.
“Visionary AI expert Mustafa Suleyman and I share the belief that a philosophical, humanistic perspective must drive AI development. That’s why I’m thrilled the DeepMind co-founder and former VP of AI at Google is joining Greylock as a Venture Partner,” said Reid Hoffman, Partner, Greylock in a twitter post.
