Apple buys an A.I. start-up that came from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's research lab

Apple on Wednesday said it has acquired Xnor.ai, an artificial intelligence software start-up.

(Apple gives that same response whenever it confirms it has acquired a company.) GeekWire first reported the news earlier Wednesday, saying that the deal was worth up about $200 million.

The start-up specialized in running its software not in data centers full of powerful computers, but rather on devices with lesser computing resources.

In late 2018 Apple appointed John Giannandrea, its senior vice president of artificial intelligence and machine learning strategy and a former Google executive, to its executive team.
