Microsoft Executive Vice President Harry Shum is among the few Chinese computer scientists widely known in the U.S. tech world. But now he is set to leave the world’s largest software company after 23 years.

Shum, whose given name is Heung-Yeung in Chinese, will leave the company early next year, Microsoft announced Wednesday. His role at the helm of the company’s artificial intelligence and research arm will go to current Chief Technology Officer Kevin Scott. Shum will continue in an advisory role to CEO Satya Nadella and company co-founder Bill Gates.

Shum made his name at Microsoft when he played a leading role in establishing the company’s research lab in Beijing. He also oversaw the development of Microsoft’s popular Bing search engine.
