Apple has reportedly acquired yet another startup company, and this time it is Hyderabad-based Tuplejump. The acquisition comes just a few months after the Cupertino giant bought Seattle-based Turi Inc. for $200 million and artificial intelligence startup Emotient for an undisclosed amount. The company had also acquired Perceptio last year.
The iPhone maker hasn't confirmed the latest acquisition, but its spokesperson has given a hint to TechCrunch that the company may have bought it. He said that "Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans."
Neither Apple nor Tuplejump has disclosed the acquisition amount.
Tuplejump is a machine learning startup that aims at simplifying data management technologies and make them easy to use. It helps companies store huge amount of data with its software.
Apple is reportedly interested in Tuplejump's open-source project "FiloDB" that deals with machine learning concepts and analytics. Bringing artificial intelligence from this startup will help it compete with other big companies like Google and Facebook that have heavily invested in this field.
