According to a recent report, Apple has made another acquisition and this time it is another machine learning company called Tuplejump.
Apple previously purchased another couple of machine learning companies, one last year and one earlier this year.
Since Apple has taken over Tuplejump the company’s website has been taken down, but the description below of what they do was taken from Wayback Machine.
A few years ago people realised that the volume of data that businesses generate was becoming unwieldy. A new set of technologies to handle this huge amounts of data cropped up. We were one of the early adopters of these ‘big-data’ technologies. Having helped Fortune 500 companies adopt these technologies we quickly realised how complicated they were and how much simpler they could get.
Thus started our quest to simplify data management technologies and make them extremely simple to use. We are building technology that is simple to use, scalable and will allow people to ask difficult questions on huge datasets.
As yet there are no details on how much Apple paid for the company and also no details on what the technology will be used for.
