Diane Greene, who leads Google’s cloud business, announced the team at an event at the company’s facilities in San Francisco. The group will be led by Fei-Fei Li, an artificial intelligence professor at Stanford University, and researcher Jia Li.

“What really attracted these two people to come and be in Google Cloud is a chance to democratize machine learning and artificial intelligence,” Greene said.
