How Amazon's Trying To Keep Pace With Google and Microsoft for AI


Amazon is improving the artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities of its popular cloud services in order to better compete with rival services from Google and Microsoft. Amazon Web Services plans to announce the upgrades at its upcoming annual customer conference in Las Vegas, the tech news site The Information reported on Monday. Amazon has been working with several AI-oriented startups including DataRobot and Domino Data Lab, to improve its services, the web site said. Cloud computing is largely used to run standard business applications and store digital data for corporations and consumers. But with so much data already stored in cloud servers, now corporations are looking to conduct big data analysis and machine learning tasks like image recognition directly in the cloud as well.
