Facebook Acquires Wit.ai

by Ziuby

Wit.ai is a Y Combinator-backed speech recognition startup, founded 18 month ago. The company provides an API for building voice-activated interfaces. Company has over 6000 developers on its platform. While building speech recognition and voice control is normally an extremely complicated technical process, Wit.ai
allows developers build this capability into their products by simply adding a few short lines of code.
Wit.ai announced the acquisition in a blog post.




This merger is on the basis of a common vision and a Win-Win situation for both. Wit.ai is looking forward to the resources at Facebook to explore their future plans. Facebook has always prided themselves in having a good eye and judgement in backing potential winners at the Digital Market. Be it Whats App or no Wit.ai Facebook  is quickly making it mark in the Market.
