KPMG acquires startup Recommender Labs


NEW DELHI, June 7: Consultancy and audit firm KPMG Friday said it has acquired artificial intelligence-led decision-science services company Recommender Labs.

“KPMG has acquired Mumbai-based Recommender Labs’ trademark brand, software products and other IP rights. Their managing director and four employees will join KPMG India,” KPMG said in a statement.

The acquisition will help KPMG develop technology products for clients as it has plans to build its own centre of excellence specialising in decision-science and artificial intelligence-driven solutions, it said.
