Google are looking to give their image and speech recognition software a nice boost, so they've acquired DNNresearch Inc. DNNresearch Inc was a startup out of the University of Toronto's computer science department, and now a part of the Mountain View-based giant.




The startup was founded by University professor Geoffrey Hinton and two of his graduate students last year, with Google interested in the company's research on deep neural networks, which will assist the company on improving their speech and image recognition software. Professor Hinton will now continue his work with the University, as well as continuing his research with Google.
