Apple has recently purchased the machine-learning startup, Turi. Fortune magazine brought this interesting news to us in their article, “Apple Buys a Machine-Learning Startup For a Reported $200 Million.”

Computers that can be trained to learn new things and make cognitive decisions and even predictions are attracting lots of attention.

Turi’s tagline is “Create intelligence.” This makes sense considering it is more than just machine-learning technology. It is a platform with tools to help other developers embed its capabilities into their own applications.

In the world of information management, semantic technology, artificial intelligence, and machine learning continue to evolve and be used in a variety of applications. It has never been more important to have someone with the expertise and knowledge handling your content, developing your taxonomies, and making your information findable.
