4 ways Google Cloud will bring AI, machine learning to the enterprise

4 ways Google Cloud will bring AI, machine learning to the enterprise

Fei-Fei Li, chief scientist of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning at Google Cloud, showcased new machine learning tools like the Video Intelligence API, which makes it easier to search and discover video content.

A Google blog post positions the Cloud Video Intelligence API as a business-facing product for companies that want to manage large video databases. With this new technology, which is now in a Private Beta according to Google, developers are able to search for specific objects within videos, a feature that could prove useful for surveillance videos, among other things.

Notably, the API also allows you to tag scene changes in a video. According to TechCrunch sources, the company is reportedly buying Kaggle, a group that hosts both data science and machine-learning competitions, as well as a job board with listings for analysts, programmers, and more. For instance, Snap Inc, which is the parent company of Snapchat, partners with Google and Amazon Web Services for its cloud solutions.

Google and enterprise resource planning company SAP announced a new cloud-oriented partnership at the latest iteration of the Google Cloud Next conference on Wednesday.

Google has been increasingly investing in machine learning, opening up new tools for customers to use to improve efforts in customer service. The Rackspace - Google Cloud partnership comes just after last week's announcement of several new members to the Rackspace Board of Directors, most notably Tim Campos, former CIO of Facebook.

"We are providing them best technology to take advantage of Google Cloud, libraries etc", she said.

Google also announced the opening of its Advanced Solutions Lab in Mountain View, in which customers can work with machine learning experts at Google to develop solutions that can address their specific needs. Toward that end, they plan to launch a software development kit for programmers later this month.

Big data is so important powerful nation states will fight over it, was the message from Alphabet's Eric Schmidt this week.

"VSEC cloud security provides powerful threat prevention which scales automatically as your business grows", Erez Berkner, director of product management at Check Point, says in a March 7 press release.

"Enterprise customers moving from on-premise to public cloud environments wish to retain insight and control over the access to their sensitive data, while at the same time benefiting from the agility, scale and global presence of a public cloud platform", said Nan Boden, head of global technology partners for Google Cloud. He also noted that Google has invested $30 billion in cloud computing.
