Tech giant Apple never stops surprising us. With its strategic business moves, the company always tries to stay ahead of the curve in providing latest technology to its customers. Recently, Apple has acquired Dublin-based startup Voysis, a conversational artificial intelligence (AI) platform that enables high quality voice and natural language capabilities.

The Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to use Voysis' technology to improve its virtual assistant Siri and the financial details of the deal has not been disclosed yet. "At Voysis, we believe voice will soon be the first point of contact between 'man' and machine. We believe that voice driven natural language interfaces will change the way people interact with consumer and enterprise facing applications by creating more intuitive, efficient, and personalized experiences," according to the company's LinkedIn bio.

This amazing voice tech company was founded in 2012 by Peter Cahill and Noel Ruane. The company is headquartered in Dublin, Leinster, Ireland, with additional office in Edinburgh, Scotland and Boston, Massachusetts.

The company has developed voice recognition platform driven by natural language instructions and search capabilities that is extremely good at recognizing and responding to voice commands from users.

This is the second strategic acquisition from Apple this week as it also acquired weather app Dark Sky.
