Quartz Acquires Artificial Intelligence Research Firm

The site's first acquisition.

Atlantic Media’s Quartz has acquired the artificial intelligence research firm Intelligentsia.ai. This is Quartz’s first acquisition since launching four years ago.

As part of the deal, Intelligentsia.ai’s co-founders Dave Edwards and Helen Edwards will have some work published on Quartz.

“In the short term, you’ll likely see Dave and Helen’s bylines on posts on qz.com, and their research enriching our tech reporting team’s coverage of artificial intelligence,” wrote Quartz co-presidents Kevin Delaney and Jay Lauf, in a note about the acquisition. “We’re also working with the Intelligentsia.ai team on a new specialized product aimed at providing global business professionals with valuable insights into how AI affects their organizations.”
