Facebook Buys Ozlo To Boost Its Conversational AI Efforts & Messenger
Ozlo is now part of the development team of Facebook Messenger, announced the start up of artificial intelligence in a statement. According to the site “TechCrunch”, its technology will be used in the challenges of natural language processing.
Ozlo’s technology focuses on understanding text conversations and then offering complete answers through so-called ‘probabilistic truth claims’, explains the “Recode” portal.
The company employs almost 30 people and is led by Charles Jolley, former head of Android Platform on Facebook. Most staff will move to Messenger offices, though Jolley will not return.
“They are just going to work with (Messenger) to continue their work with artificial intelligence and automatic learning,” a Facebook spokesman said after declining to comment on the final price of the purchase, says “Recode.”
Ozlo was launched as a consumer-oriented application in October 2016. Jolley once told TechCrunch that the artificial intelligence chat room was rapidly consolidating and that he was happy to offer an independent service to the technology giants.
In March, the company launched a suite of APIs, having as its main feature its knowledge graph, a database made about the world needed to demonstrate any sense of intelligence. This offered its services to developers.
The layer of knowledge that offered would be reduced by the purchase of the social network giant Facebook, according to the same social network. While “TechCrunch” clarifies that it is not very clear what the specific functions of Ozlo within Messenger.
Technology media speculation centers on that Ozlo could be the backbone for Messenger’s “M” virtual assistant.
