Google’s response to Apple’s Siri: Buy Cleversense

December 19, 2011

Cleversense, a learning AI with a natural language processing front-end – and the developer of the popular Alfred personal assistant app – has been sold to Google for an undisclosed amount.
Fear that Apple’s Siri “could provide a new paradigm for searching the Web that circumvents Google’s search engine and ads” may be the reason.
The first language processing front-end made available to developers by either Apple or Google will be a windfall for human-robot communication systems development.
