Google has announced Cloud AutoML, a new cloud computing service that aims to simplify the process of utilizing machine learning (ML). A Google blog post on the topic noted, “Currently, only a handful of businesses in the world have access to the talent and budgets needed to fully appreciate the advancements of ML and AI. There’s a very limited number of people that can create advanced machine learning models.” This service will remove some of those barriers, including the need to write code to create and train models.
The first Cloud AutoML product will be AutoML Vision, which will provide APIs for computer vision. the company plans to follow up with products focused on translation, video and natural language processing.
