Alibaba Launches Cloud-Based Big Data Service
Aliyun, Alibaba's cloud computing subsidiary, has launched a new big data analytics service called DT PAI. Alibaba says this is "China's first artificial intelligence platform," and it offers large-scale machine learning capabilities which can predict user behavior and industry trends.
DT PAI also features a drag-and-drop interface which allows customers to develop applications without writing any code. "Our goal is to create a one-stop artificial intelligence development, publishing, and sharing platform through data, calculations, and data connections," said Wei Xiao, Aliyun's senior product manager. He added, "What used to take days can be completed within minutes."
