Apple has hired Google’s chief of search and artificial intelligence, John Giannandrea, a major coup in its bid to catch up to the artificial intelligence technology of its rivals.

Apple said on Tuesday that Mr. Giannandrea will run Apple’s “machine learning and A.I. strategy,” and become one of 16 executives who report directly to Apple’s chief executive, Timothy D. Cook.

The hire is a victory for Apple, which many Silicon Valley executives and analysts view as lagging its peers in artificial intelligence, an increasingly crucial technology for companies that enable computers to handle more complex tasks, like understanding voice commands or identifying people in images.

• Apple pays female employees up to 26% less than men in some parts of its UK and European operations.

• In the company as a whole, women earn 5% less than men.

• The disparity is a result of Apple's leadership ranks being filled with men.

• That all looks bad ... but Apple's salary gap is actually smaller than most.
