Google in February fired Mitchell, a lead researcher, following a controversy. Google on Tuesday confirmed a leader of its artificial intelligence team has resigned in a departure that comes after the controversial firing of two colleagues. The internet giant declined to comment further on the resignation of Samy Bengio, who has worked at Google about four years and specialized in machine learning. "While I am looking forward to my next challenge, there's no doubt that leaving this wonderful team is really difficult," Bengio wrote in a work email first cited by Bloomberg. Bengio did not refer to Timnit Gebru or Margaret Mitchell, two former members of the team focused on ethical artificial intelligence.
