Cisco Systems, Inc (NASDAQ:CSCO) has today announced its plan to acquire MindMeld Inc, which as a matter of fact happens to be a privatelyheld artificial intelligence (AI) provider that is situated in San Francisco.A could have been expected, the news has been met with mixed reactions among the concerned parties, but one thing that is beyond any cloud of doubt is that the company is making a step forward.

Over the years, MindMeld has played a leading role towards the establishment of a one of a kind platform that will make it possible for customers to come up intelligent and human-like conversational interfaces for any device or application. From the look of things, the stage is already set for customers from across the board to get to reap from the technological advancements the world is experiencing currently.

One thing that is for sure is the fact that MindMeld has in the course of time gone far and wide to provide incredible accuracy towards helping the different users chat assistants more naturally as well as get to interact with a voice, and that is thanks to its proprietary machine learning (ML) technology.

While addressing a press conference lately, one of the top executives working for Cisco was quite vocal about the immense success the company has been able to achieve lately. The provider remains a firm believer of the fact that the AI and machine learning will go quite a long way towards increasingly vital role across all sections of its entire business.

The top company official delved deeper into the matter where he gave credit to the industry leadership in networking, data center, collaboration, analytics, and unified communications. According to him, the company was of course positioned in a rather unique fashion which would indeed see it get to reap from  the AI and ML, which in some earlier time were observed as merely dreams.

Customers will be empowered in such a way that they will be able to stay ahead of security attacks, self-manage their network and data center as well as revolutionize the workplace.
