Google acquires AIMatter


The market for artificial intelligence (AI) is booming. According to Narrative Science’s survey last year, AI is already being used by 38% of enterprises and is predicted to grow to 62% by 2018. In addition, Tractica estimates that AI-related revenue will reach $37 billion by 2025. With so much at stake, it’s no wonder that companies are investing in AI. Last week, Google beefed up its AI portfolio by acquiring Belarus-based based startup AIMatter for an undisclosed amount. AIMatter is the creator of the Fabby app, a computer vision app that uses AI technology to instantly recognize and process facial characteristics the way humans do. Fabby uses filters to identify different parts of a selfie and aptly applies hairstyle, makeup, and backgrounds. Although Google did not disclose how it intends to use AIMatter’s technology, the acquisition underscores Google’s big shift from “mobile-first” to “AI-first.”

Disney buys $1.58 billion stake in BAMTech


The Walt Disney Company is ending its streaming and distribution partnership with Netflix in the hopes of starting its own digital video streaming service. Last week, Disney acquired majority ownership of BAMTech in a $1.58 billion deal. BAMTech is Major League Baseball’s interactive media and internet unit that provides video streaming for premium channels like HBO, NHL, PGA Tour and WWE. BAMTech claims to have around 7.5 million paid subscribers and this transaction values BAMTech at $3.75 billion. With more people migrating from cable TV to video streaming, this new partnership between Disney and BAMTech will help position Disney as a major player in the booming video streaming space and enable the company to be competitive amidst evolving consumer viewing habits. Furthermore, BAMTech will collaborate with ESPN to launch a “multi-sport” subscription streaming service for live regional, national and international sporting events.
