Apple took over DarwinAI, a Canadian artificial intelligence (AI) company, and employed hundreds of its staff.

Apple has acquired DarwinAI, an artificial intelligence (AI) business, and has hired dozens of employees from the Canadian company. According to the story, Apple purchased the company earlier this year, citing people familiar with the situation. The story made no mention of the deal’s worth.

Apple has been slower to introduce generative AI, which can generate human-like responses to textual instructions, than competitors such as Microsoft and Alphabet’s Google, which are incorporating it into their products.

Alexander Wong, an AI researcher at the University of Waterloo who helped create DarwinAI’s business, has joined Apple as a director in its AI group as part of the agreement, according to the article.

DarwinAI has developed AI technology for visually checking components throughout the manufacturing process and supports customers in a wide range of sectors.
