Google acquires visual recognition machine learning startup Moodstocks

Google has announced that it had acquired a visual recognition machine learning technology start-up, Moodstocks for an undisclosed amount. Incorporated in 2009, the French start-up originally introduced on-device image recognition in 2012, which enables smartphones to automatically recognize the content their camera detects. With the recent acquisition, Google had made a substantial investment in the machine learning technologies since accurate object recognition is one of the difficult problems for machine learning. For the past 3 years, the small team of researchers and engineers based in Google has taken advantage of deep learning to extend the reach of their object recognition algorithms, licensing machine-readable executable object code including the launch of a software development kit for OEMs to enable them to embed the code into their products. The Moodstocks API, meanwhile,…
