Google has detailed new ways it is using artificial intelligence to improve enterprise products, and the most exciting among those details is its new Video Intelligence API. The new cloud product ultimately sits at the intersection between Google's established search business and its pivot toward a video-first focus in other areas, and should be a welcome addition for marketers, publishers and developers as well.
Google on Wednesday also introduced its Cloud Video Intelligence API, providing an ability to search video for specific content.
VentureBeat noted that Google's biggest cloud competitors, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, do not now offer this type of API, though similar technologies exist for both image and speech recognition.
Google Cloud also announced a new partnership with SAP to integrate its cloud services with SAP's enterprise apps. "Check Point vSEC lets us securely leverage the cloud to its fullest capabilities, extending our on-premise data center while protecting critical assets from external and internal threats, all while achieving speed, agility and cost-savings offered by Google Cloud Platform". "We will be able to help deliver value to joint customers and help them meet their evolving business needs". It is not a big deal since even companies like Spotify and Apple have begun to use Google's Cloud Storage.
Trifacta, the global leader in data wrangling, today announced it has collaborated with Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL) to build Google Cloud Dataprep.
Cloud Language can transcribe text in over 80 languages and detect inappropriate content. Users can then analyze the text output with other machine learning APIs from Google.
