AI as a Service: Rent the AI you need from Google

Google Campus

Here’s some fun stuff you can do on your year-end holiday vacation: learn to use AI to read and understand your documents or email messages. It’s so easy that anyone can do it.

Google recently announced that its AutoML Natural Language framework is now generally available. As they describe, “Natural Language uses machine learning to reveal the structure and meaning of text. You can extract information about people, places, and events, and better understand social media sentiment and customer conversations. Natural Language enables you to analyze text and also integrate it with your document storage on Cloud Storage.”

There are two products in the framework: AutoML Natural Language, which allows you to create a custom machine learning model to classify content into domain-specific categories, and Natural Language API, with which you can create a pre-trained machine learning model to reveal the structure and meaning of text.

If you’ve got a few minutes to check this out, it will help you understand just how much commoditized AI is going to be part of everything.
