Uber Announces The Creation Of Uber AI Labs

Let's start the week off with some Good Uber news, shall we? The ride-sharing company announced today that it has acquired an AI startup called Geometric Intelligence and has immediately put them to work in the newly created Uber AI Labs.

I’m thrilled to make two announcements today. The first is the creation of Uber AI Labs, a new division of Uber, based in San Francisco, dedicated to cutting-edge research in artificial intelligence and machine learning. And the second is the acquisition of the AI research startup Geometric Intelligence, whose 15 members will form the initial core of the AI Labs team.
