Alibaba announced a massive $15 billion research 'DAMO Academy' project focused on R&D last month, and it is laying the groundwork for an office in Tel Aviv through a deal to acquire technology and talent from Israeli startup Visualead.

上个月,阿里巴巴宣布了一项规模达150亿美元的大型研究项目——“达摩学院”(DAMO Academy 阿里巴巴全球研究院),专注于研发项目,通过收购以色列初创公司Visualead的技术和人才,并为特拉维夫的一间办公室奠定了基础。

Visualead developed a new kind of 'dot-less' QR code that Alibaba had used for its business in China. The company was founded in 2013 and it landed investment from Alibaba in 2015. Now, however, Alibaba is buying the startup's computer vision technology and an undisclosed number of Visualead's core engineering team to create its DAMO Academy office in Tel Aviv, according to sources with knowledge of the deal.

Visualead开发了一种新的“少点”的二维码,阿里巴巴已经在中国使用它的业务。该公司成立于2013年,并于2015年从阿里巴巴获得投资。据知情人士透露,现在,阿里巴巴正在收购这家初创公司的计算机视觉技术,以及一个未披露数量的Visualead核心工程团队,并在特拉维夫创建其DAMO达摩学院办公室。

TechCrunch understands that the deal has been agreed in principle but it has not been completed yet. Israeli media reported that a full acquisition is on the cards, however our sources said that this is incorrect since Alibaba is only acquiring select tech assets. We have not been able to determine the price of the transaction. The deal would represent Alibaba's first (partial) acquisition in Israel.

TechCrunch认为这笔交易仅在原则上达成,但还没有完成。据以色列媒体报道,一项全面收购正在进行中,但我们的消息人士称,这是不正确的,因为阿里巴巴只收购了一些科技资产。我们还不能确定这笔交易的价格。这笔交易将代表阿里巴巴在以色列的第一次(部分)收购。
