Google buys French startup that helps machines see

Google has announced a deal to buy Moodstocks, a French startup that has developed technology enabling smartphones to recognise what they are aimed at.

The company stood out to Google due to its work in computer vision and machine learning, as well as accomplishments in enabling smartphones and other mobile devices to recognise images and objects. Google is currently investing in technology to help computers understand the world around them in a way similar to humans.

The company has already incorporated machine learning into a number of its services, such as its language translation and photo services.

The Moodstocks team, a small group of researchers and engineers, are expected to join a Google R&D centre in Paris.
