The co-founder of DeepMind, the artificial intelligence research company acquired by Google in 2014, has been placed on leave, according to a Bloomberg report on Wednesday that raised questions about his role within the controversial group.
The report did not provide any information on the reason that Mustafa Suleyman, the DeepMind co-founder, was put on leave by the company.
A Google spokesperson told Bloomberg that Suleyman was "taking time out right now after 10 hectic years," a phrasing that suggested the leave of absence was voluntary.
