5 Ways Machine Learning Has Influenced The Modern Cloud

The cloud computing industry is going through a gradual shift towards becoming an intelligent cloud. While compute, storage, and networking continue to be the revenue spinners for cloud vendors, it is Machine Learning that is becoming the focal point of the contemporary cloud.

Here are five cloud services that are highly influenced by Machine Learning.

Cognitive Computing aims to bring sensory capabilities to applications. It enables apps to see, listen, talk, and even make decisions. Based on natural language processing, visual recognition, face detection, emotion detection, video analytics, text to Speech, speech to text, language translation, and sentiment analysis, Cognitive Computing empowers developers with simple APIs.
