Apple has acquired an Ireland-based AI startup called Voysis that works on improving the natural language understanding of an AI assistant. Voysis reportedly has expertise in improving digital assistants so that they can respond more efficiently to voice commands.

As per a Bloomberg report, an Apple spokesman mentioned that the company “buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

Apple could use the services offered by Voysis to further enhance Siri’s understanding of natural language. Alternatively, the company might also offer it to developers who integrate Siri functionality into their apps.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
