“Chowdhry said the acquisition is ‘solid and smart and makes Apple Machine Learning the most comprehensive offering with ML Models, Algorithms-Optimization, and Developer Ecosystem,'” Duggan writes. “Chowdhry estimates the intelligent software applications market will be a $300 billion market, and believes Turi puts Apple in prime position to cash in.”
