Samsung to Acquire Nuance - Company Behind Siri's Speech Recognition Technology

Samsung Electronics may soon acquire a firm called Nuance. This is the company behind the speech recognition technology, which is currently used by Apple's Siri virtual assistant.

Samsung is not the only tech giant interested in acquisition. Apart from that, there's no information about the results of the negotiations between the two companies. Taking into account these facts, I can say that the deal hasn't yet been finalized.

Speech-recognition company Nuance, which is responsible for the technology that powers Siri, Apple's virtual assistant, is in talks with Samsung Electronics about a possible acquisition, reports The Wall Street Journal.

Looks like the guys from Cupertino now have the reason to be worried. It seems that Samsung is doing its best to make Apple dependent on its parts and services.
