Google’s Head of VR to Form AI Company with Former Co-CEO of Salesforce


Are you curious about the future of Google’s AR and AI plans? If so, you’re in luck! In this blog post, we’ll be exploring the exciting news that Google isn’t planning to replace its AR leader, Clay Bavor, and that he will be founding a new AI startup with Bret Taylor.

To start, let’s take a look at what Google has said about the situation. According to a Google spokesperson, Chris Pappas, the Labs team will be moved to the company’s Tech & Society organization under James Manyika. The company’s AR work will be split, and much of it will be under the leadership of Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google’s platforms and ecosystems head, and Rick Osterloh, who leads devices and services.

Now let’s dive into the details of Bavor’s new AI startup. Bavor will be founding the new AI startup with Bret Taylor, a former Facebook (now Meta) CTO and former co-CEO of Salesforce. Bavor and Taylor will officially start work on the company in March. Taylor also posted about the new company on his LinkedIn, though his description of it matches Bavor’s.

So what does this mean for the future of Google’s AR and AI plans? While the company’s AR work will be split, Google is not planning to replace Bavor. Therefore, it’s likely that the company will continue to make progress in both AR and AI, although the specifics of their plans are not yet known.

Overall, this news is exciting and it will be interesting to see what Bavor and Taylor create with their new AI startup. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with the latest developments in Google’s AR and AI plans.
