has been less than a year since Google first provided a glimpse into its vision
for cloud computing. If there is any company that should be paid attention to
in this area, it's Google. Special attention should occur when the chairman of
Google's parent company, Alphabet, claims that the next five years will hold
even more innovation than the previous five years when it comes to cloud
computing. Looking back at the last five years, that is quite the statement.
biggest part of the keynote address focused on machine learning. This gives us
a good idea of where cloud computing in general wil go. Google has since proven
just how serious it is about machine learning with the news being filled with
buzz about DeepMind.
at the keynote address we can surmise that machine learning will be a regular
part of our lives within the next five years. According to Google, their
machine learning software could work in something like an API in the figure. Developers
will be able to plug-in to the software and focus on creating.
end goal is that machines will be able to parse through the millions of
terabytes of data that humankind collects every day and be able to identify and
make accurate predictions in millions of industries. Imagine if a machine could
predict exactly what diseases you were likely to have and tell you at birth.
Doctors could catch life-threatening conditions significantly earlier and stand
a much better chance of winning.
there are obviously some big limits to the potential of cloud computing,
specifically in regards to machine learning. Currently there still security
issues that companies with a lot of private data would like to work out. There
are also compatibility issues with thousands of different cloud-based software
solutions trying to use the same data. There will also be increased fixes to
compatibility issues as machines learn to work together without developers
spending hours to make it happen.
big future of cloud computing will be the money it has the potential to save
big businesses. As data and computing begins to take place in the cloud
companies will save thousands of dollars by focusing most of their business in
will be interesting to continue to watch the bit data and cloud computing
industries grow together. As they do so, they will likely create even more
problems that need to be solved. This will, in turn, create more industries and
niches that focus on solving these problems.
thing for sure, the future of cloud computing is an exciting one.
