Google acquires French startup ‘Moodstocks’ to improve AI


Yesterday, Google bought a French startup company whose focus is on object recognition. Moodstocks, the French startup, will seek to help Google on improving AI.

Google’s acquisition of Moodstocks will help take machine learning to the next stage. Moodstock engineers will reportedly join Google at its R&D center located in Paris, France. Two of their major focuses will be on deep learning and image recognition.

The technology is at the beginning stages and has lots of potential. It may be used to improve the reliability of self-driving cars. It may also be used in robotics, as shown off at Google I/O. The possibilities are truly endless.

Moodstock’s mix of cloud and on-device computing will surely help Google take AI to the next level. This will keep the company on par with other manufacturers that have rushed into the technology to be among the first. We can’t wait to see Google’s next move.
