Over the past two years, Expect Labs' team experts developed new technologies to understand the meaning of continuous conversations. Based on this understanding, Expect Labs' platform can model the context of your interactions in real-time, and proactively find information you may want before you need to search for it.

"We are entering an era where the computing devices in our lives will not only be able to understand what we say, but they will also do a much better job anticipating the information we may need," said Dave Flanagan, Intel Capital.

"Expect Labs has taken a unique approach to modeling context using sensor signals, such as GPS and audio, that are available in the new generation of computing devices. We think this approach is an important step toward creating a new layer of application and device intelligence," said Brannon Lacey, Principal at Samsung Venture Investment Corporation.

"Expect Labs is at the cutting edge of the future of search, developing solutions that will change the way we discover and share information. We see huge potential for its technology across all areas of our business, and this investment opens the door to close collaboration between our technical teams," said Tracy Isacke, head of Telefonica Digital Ventures.

Intel Capital, Samsung Venture Investment Corporation and Telefonica Digital will join Expect Labs' existing investors, including Google, Greylock, Bessemer, IDG Ventures, KPG Ventures, Quest Venture Partners as well as several angel investors.
