AIMatter Fabby
This AI startup based in Belarus is behind Fabby, a mobile app for Android and iOS with more than 2 million downloads so far that uses artificial intelligence to detect and process images.

Artificial intelligence might have a long road ahead, but some branches are more developed than the others. Such an area is computer vision, namely the ability of a program to "understand" and process images. AIMatter is a startup that was founded in Belarus and developed a neural network-based AI platform and SDK that can identify and process graphics content on mobile devices, as well as a proof-of-concept app called Fabby that has been downloaded more than 2 million times already.

According to the official AIMatter website, the team is excited to announce they are joining Google. They did not reveal any details, while Google told TechCrunch just that "We are excited to welcome the AIMatter team to Google." and nothing else.

AIMatter currently has offices in Minsk, Zurich, and the Bay Area. For now, it is not clear if the staff will continue working in the present locations or they would need to move around.

The financial terms of the deal have not been uncovered yet and will probably remain confidential. However, it seems that Fabby will remain in the air. The app is currently available for both Android and iOS handsets.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
