Everyone has heard the phrase “in the cloud”. Those white puff balls floating over head seriously contain a massive amount of information – enough to win wars and impeach presidents. While it’s fun to think that the condensed air balls forming animal shapes high in the sky are what’s keeping all of our information safe, the Cloud is actually a bit more complicated. And even more so when you add artificial intelligence (AI) to the equation.
For tons of reasons, many companies already have or are in the process of migrating to the cloud. But some are taking it a step further and focusing on innovating from the cloud with artificial intelligence. You see, the Cloud is the underlying platform with the data storage capacity and massive processing capability that will help enable AI innovation at the speed demanded. Companies are already starting to integrate a variety of AI-driven technologies across voice, vision, language and machine learning in order to transform their businesses.
“Accenture research shows that 85 percent of business and IT executives anticipate making extensive investments in one or more AI-related technologies over the next three years.”
