Later in the second half of 2018, Google announced that it would integrate the team that created Streams into Google's “Google Health”. As a result, DeepMind's healthcare research department was completely shelved, and Suleiman lost his own team. Later, Mr. Suleiman was part of an external expert panel established by Google to examine ethical issues related to AI, and was responsible for reviewing specific projects.

A DeepMind spokesperson said, “Mustafa has been busy for 10 years and is now on leave,” says Suleiman ’s leave. The spokesperson did not explain why Suleiman was suspended. Bloomberg asked Mr. Suleiman for comment, but he did not respond.
