Snap buys image, video startup AI Factory

Snap Inc. acquired image and video recognition startup AI Factory for $166 million, Variety reported, citing Ukrainian tech publication AIN.ua.

Snap confirmed the transaction, but a company spokesman declined to comment on the terms of the deal, according to the report.

The technology from the San Francisco-headquartered AI Factory is used for Snapchat's Cameos feature, which allows users to send a looping video of manipulated selfies via chat.
