All the big tech companies are making a play in artificial intelligence. You can now undoubtedly count Uber among them.
Uber announced on Monday that it acquired AI startup Geometric Intelligence, which will form the core of its new AI Labs.
"The formation of Uber AI Labs, to be directed by Geometric’s Founding CEO Gary Marcus, represents Uber’s commitment to advancing the state of the art, driven by our vision that moving people and things in the physical world can be radically faster, safer and accessible to all," Uber Chief Product Officer Jeff Holden wrote in a blog post.
