Chainlink hired Google Vet Kemal El Moujahid who oversaw Tensorflow at the tech giant so let’s read more about it in our latest Chainlink news.
Chainlink hired Google vet Kemal El Moujahid whose expertise will help the crypto company to better identify authorities for the oracle. Chainlink is the most popular oracle network and serves as an essential source of information for millions of smart contracts that supply data on prices assets location and more. This is why it is notable that chainlink hired Moujahid who oversaw the product management for Google’s machine learning platform known as TensorFlow.
TensorFlow is an open-source software library for creating artificial intelligence and machine learning programs that are best known for fostering advances in deep neural networks, a new field of computing focusing on training machines to recognize patterns in the fields of data. The upshot is that chainlink stands to reap the experiences of the world of AI and that the oracle services could in turn become faster and sophisticated. The co-founder of Chainlink, Sergey Nazarov said:
“[El Moujahid’s] work there helped to define the machine learning industry and enable millions of developers to be successful using that technology. I am excited to have him join Chainlink Labs to replicate that success in the blockchain industry.”
The addition of El Moujahid is known for launching Facebook’s Messenger platform and could help improve overall crypto security. Oracles are targeted by hackers that look to exploit flaws in a smart contract and steal funds Chainlink is the biggest oracle and decentralized which avoided plenty of incidents but hackers in 2020 launched a spam attack which succeeded in robbing a handful of node operators. El Moujahid’s AI expertise can help Chainlink to identify authoritative data but also screen for malicious activity.
El Moujahid will serve as a chief product officer and didn’t identify the immediate priorities at chainlink:
“I have seen the incredible things that developers have built when machine learning tools become more accessible to them. I believe that smart contracts are radically changing the world for the better.”
Chainlink added other notable executives from the Web2 space like Mike Derezin who worked at LinkedIn and then joined Chainlink Labs as the company’s chief operating officer as well as Eric Schmidt, former Google CEO who joined as an adviser.
