Continuing the trend of large tech firms buying artificial intelligence (AI) startups, Facebook has bought Ozlo, a young company focused on conversational AI. Founded by Charles Jolley, the former Head of Platform for Android at Facebook, Ozlo had a consumer-facing app, a suite of APIs for developers and a knowledge graph that it sold as a service.

Facebook plans to integrate Ozlo technology with its Messenger chat platform. “1.2 billion people around the world use Messenger to connect with the people and businesses they care about,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “We’re excited to welcome the Ozlo team as we build compelling experiences within Messenger that are powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning.”

The companies did not disclose the purchase price or other details of the deal.
