It's official, 2016 has been the year of the AI startup acquisition. Tech giants Apple, Intel, Twitter and Microsoft have all spent large sums to bring artificial intelligence startups, and their expertise, inhouse.
Four of the biggest AI startup acquisitions of the last five years have come from the UK, starting with Google's purchase of Deep Mind in 2014 for a reported £400 million. Since then Apple has purchased Cambridge-based natural language processing specialists VocalIQ, Microsoft bought the machine learning powered keyboard SwiftKey in February and Twitter acquired Entrepreneur First alumni Magic Pony in June.
Here are some of the most interesting startups working in the area of artificial intelligence in the UK today, whether that is machine learning, deep learning, neural nets or computer vision. Could the next Deep Mind be lurking in there?
