Google acquires machine learning startup Moodstocks to help visual recognition for smartphones

Tech giant Google has added to its vast technology services stable by acquiring Paris-based startup Moodstocks, which has developed machine learning based image recognition technology for smartphones. The acquisition by Google will see it add the recognition technology of Moodstocks to its already large number of services it offers which use machine learning, such as Google Translate, Smart Reply in Inbox and the Goggle app. With many of its services already relying on machine learning technologies, Google’s acquisition of Moodstocks will help with implementing visual recognition. The Moodstocks team of engineers and researchers, based in Paris, developed new algorithms for Visual pattern recognition and machine learning, as well as a technology for the recognition of images and objects via mobile devices. Head of the R&D Center of Google France, Vincent Simonet, wrote in a…
