Google buys Speech Recognition; Apple snaps up Machine Learning

It seems the smartest way to make money right now is to have a startup in speech recognition, machine learning, neural networks or other Artificial Intelligence related startup.

TechCrunch reported late last week the Apple had acquired another machine learning company:

After buying Perceptio at the end of 2015 and Turi just a few months ago, Apple has now acquired an India/US-based machine learning team, Tuplejump.

Presumably to beef up its efforts in AI and machine learning across the company.

Not to be left behind, Google:

said that it’s acquired API.ai, a startup with tools for speech recognition and natural language understanding….

In addition to its developers tools, Api.ai offers a conversational assistant app with more than 20 million users.

I would expect the purchase is to beef up their speech recognition in its AI assistant Google Now.
