Apple has acquired Regaind, a small French artificial intelligence startup, according to TechCrunch.


The company has developed a computer vision API that can extract game-changing insights from images, according to its website.
We help businesses and developers deal with massive flows of images by using state-of- the-art artificial intelligence to analyze and sort them. Your problem is often not reduced to finding a photo of a "sailboat" or of a "lion": it's also about finding the right one for your specific use, among many others. Regaind enables you to understand the content of an image, as well as to assess its technical and aesthetical values, so as to maximize your impact with high quality photos.
Apple essentially confirmed the acquisition with its usual statement:
Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.
