    It is the newspaper "Time of Israel" which indicates, Apple would have bought the Israeli company RealFace.

    Founded in 2014, it is specialized in an area that is known to interest Apple: facial recognition and would have been absorbed for a very reasonable price of 2 to a few million euros.

    RealFace has developed a patented technique that uses artificial intelligence to enable face recognition without requiring long and arduous learning.

    But the company had also released an application, now unavailable named Pickeez . It made it possible to choose the best photos of a user, again thanks to its recognition technology.

    This buyout not confirmed by Apple at this stage (but the company never does it directly).
