Google India has acquired Halli Labs, a four-month old start-up based out of Bengaluru that is developing artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions. The startup is engaged in developing solutions to traditional problems using AI, MI, deep learning and natural language processing technologies. Halli’s spokesman reiterated that “We will be joining Google’s Next Billion Users team to help get more technology and information into more people’s hands around the world. Halli Labs is applying modern ML techniques to old problems and domains to help technology march on in its timeless purpose— that of giving superhuman powers to all of us humans in letting us do whatever we want to do, better”.
The startup, founded by Pankaj Gupta, an Indian Institute of Technology Delhi and Stanford University alumnus, is one of the many startups acquired by Google reinforcing its commitment to artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies. Pankaj had earlier worked in the now-closed hospitality startup Stayzilla.
