Google has reportedly closed a deal to acquire natural language processing startup Wavii for more than $30 million, according to TechCrunch. Both Apple and Google were said to be interested in the company, however Google made the more appealing offer and Wavii’s 25-person team will now join Google’s Knowledge Graph division in Mountain View. Apple was reportedly looking to integrate Wavii’s natural summarization algorithms and aggregation technology into its Siri division.
