,

Google I/O, the company’s annual developer conference, is the company’s biggest event of the year. One of the main talking points at this year’s conference will likely be artificial intelligence. Google has been slowly injecting AI into many of its products and services and the company’s CEO Sundar Pichai has sounded very bullish on the prospects of artificial intelligence in recent public appearances.

As our chart illustrates, Google’s recent M&A activity also speaks for the company's ambitions in the AI field. According to numbers compiled by CB Insights, the Google acquired 11 artificial intelligence startups since 2012, more than any other company. Considering that all tech industry heavyweights are working on artificial intelligence solutions, we can expect our phones and computers to become a lot smarter in the years to come.
