Usually, a companies research department winning a top conference prize isn't that noteworthy. Unless the company is Apple.
The notoriously secretive tech company published its first research paper on artificial intelligence in December 2016, giving a rare peek at what its lab is up to. (Quartz reported earlier on Apple's AI pursuits.)

The Apple paper won against 783 others accepted at the conference.
