Apple occasionally buys small tech companies and we don't usually discuss their plans or intentions.

Tim Cook's company could use the system for example for potential virtual assistant Siri or to improve the service related to the storage of multimedia content on the cloud.

Elisenda Bou-Balust, co-founder and CTO, will remain in her position, as will the team of approximately 50 researchers and engineers. The acquisition, in the territory of artificial intelligence, follows in terms of methods and purposes those already achieved in the recent past with Inductiv, Xnor and Turi.
