Earlier this month, Apple reportedly bought the patents of Lighthouse AI, a maker of AI-powered home security cameras. Now, The Information reports that Lighthouse’s co-founders have joined Apple, along with around 20 staff. According to The Information, Lighthouse cofounders Alex Teichman and Hendrik Dahlkamp sent an email to the company’s former camera testers asking for permission to transfer video and sensor data collected through its cameras to Apple. A recent Lighthouse project involved collecting that data and using it to train its machine learning algorithms to recognize people in domestic environments, The Information said. Teichman, Dahlkamp, and the 20 software staff will now resume this project at Apple, it added.
