Apple on a shopping spree to acquire machine learning startups like Tuplejump, does not state why they are acquiring
Apple acquires Hyderabai startup Tuplejump in June 2016. This acquisition was not shared with media. The news came out only on 22nd September.
“Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans,” a spokesperson said to TechCrunch. No statement was released in terms of advantage to Apple after acquiring this machine learning startup. The value at which the startup was acquired is undisclosed.
Rohit Rai, founder of Tuplejump updated his LinkedIn current workplace as Apple. His present designation from CEO went to software engineer since May 2016. As per the professional social media network, he is based out of Seattle, USA now.
This is Apple’s fourth acquisition of machine learning startups. Tuplejump has software that analyzes large amounts of data sets and reports them post analytics. Other media channels call this startup as an AI, but no details on functioning of Tuplejump is revealed.
We tried to get in touch with Tuplejump, but their phone number is out of service and the website is taken down. Based on their service we can say that Apple will use their data handling and analytics capability in their growing cloud services. Siri was also seen used by other 3rd party users, Tumplejumple technology can be used for Siri’s intelligent responses.
Tuplejump was founded by Rohit Rai and Satyaprakash Buddhavarapu in 2013. Both of them worked in technology roles in Pramati software prior to their startup. Out of 10+ staff most of them were based out of west cost, USA.
