Bloomberg's report stated that the engineering team from Waterloo, Ontario-based Inductiv joined Apple in recent weeks to work on Siri, machine learning, and data science. Responding to Bloomberg's inquiry, Apple confirmed the deal, saying it “buys smaller technology companies from time to time and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”
