Apple is preparing to unveil its first wave of user-facing AI products at its annual developers conference. John Giannandrea, the executive in charge of Apple's AI strategy, will be showcasing his work at the event. There is immense pressure on Apple to deliver impressive AI products and services, as the company is seen as behind on artificial intelligence. Wall Street views this as an opportunity for Apple to prove itself in the AI space and potentially drive up its stock. Giannandrea, a humble and mild-mannered technologist, has been working on AI features that run behind the scenes on Apple devices and software. He has a long history in the tech industry, having worked at companies like Google and General Magic. Despite his expertise, Giannandrea is not known for seeking the spotlight and may not make an appearance at the conference. Apple's AI strategy is seen as a critical factor in the company's future success.
