Right now, some of the biggest companies in the world are releasing their ambitious AI products. This includes Google, Microsoft, and Meta. However, one company is missing from all the actions, and that is Apple. This won’t be the case for long, as it is getting its AI game into order. Apple has purchased an AI startup called Darwin AI in order to boost its AI endeavors.

Right now, information on the type of AI that Apple is going to launch is extremely scarce. The company is really good at keeping its information close to the chest. As anyone can guess, Apple’s AI will possibly be closely integrated into the company’s products like iOS, iPadOS, and macOS. As such, if Apple’s AI doesn’t usher in a paradigm shift in generative AI technology, it will at least drive additional sales of its hardware.

Apple buys AI startup Darwin AI

According to the report, this acquisition isn’t exactly new. Apple purchased Darwin AI earlier this year. So, the company has been planning on boosting its AI for some time. In case you don’t know what Darwin AI is, it is a Waterloo-based AI software development company. It’s a visual quality inspection company that provides end-to-end AI solutions for several top brands. Its technology is used by manufacturers to visually inspect components during the manufacturing process.

AI researcher Dr. Alexander Wong is one of the folks responsible for building Darwin AI. It was reported that several Darwin AI employees are being moved to Apple’s AI team, and Dr. Wong is one of them. At this point, we don’t know exactly how many members are being moved over. Also, we don’t know how much money Apple bought the company for. However, we are certain it was a multi-million-dollar deal.

We don’t have a timeline for when Apple is going to start revealing information about its AI. All we can do at this point is wait for more information to come out. In any case, we know that when Apple eventually does launch its AI, it’s going to give current AI companies that run for their money.
