Google has acquired Emu, per the mobile messaging virtual assistant's Web site. The app creates reminders from messages based on time and location, as well as showing movie times and schedule restaurant reservations from text message. The creators of the app are alumni of Siri, Apple, Google, Yahoo, and AOL/TechCrunch. They built Emu using artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing. The technology understands the content and context of messages, and adds relevant information to help get things done.
