Artificial Intelligence and Cloud Computing: A blog about AI and cloud computing.



The role of Artificial Intelligence in Cloud Computing


For the last ten years, AI, especially Deep Learning (a subset of AI), has been on the rise after

two successful events: First, IBM announced the Watson super system which defeated several

Jeopardy multiple-time winners, namely Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings on February 14–15 and

AlexNet, the name of a convolutional neural network (CNN), competed in the ImageNet Large

Scale Visual Recognition Challenge on September 30, 2012, and achieved the top in this

challenge. Based on various market research, almost all institutions in different industries have started to invest in AI and they will increase investments in AI for different use-cases in

upcoming years. Future jobs related to AI will be needed more based on the World Economic

Forum’s ”Future of Jobs” report (October 2020). Moreover, according to Glassdoor's online

employment company, data scientist has been called one of the best jobs in the USA last 3

years.

There are many examples of how AI and cloud technology have become entwined in our daily lives, such as through the use of digital assistants. On a larger scale, this blend of resources makes organizations more efficient, strategic, and insight-driven.

Artificial intelligence has many facets, such as text analytics, machine language translation,

speech, and vision, that can be accessed by developers and implemented into development

projects.


Cloud management: AI can monitor core workflows. Business IT teams can, therefore, focus

on higher-value strategic activities while AI manages routine processes to maximize cloud

efficiency. It's predicted that public and private clouds will soon rely on AI for not only monitoring

and managing but also self-healing.


Data processing: Cloud computing solutions employ AI methodologies to manage large data

repositories. Data management, updates, and consumption are significantly impacted by

AI-driven data streamlining. Identifying high-risk factors and providing real-time data to clients is easier for institutions such as those in the financial sector and customer service industries.

Dynamism in Cloud Services

This point somewhat expands on what we have already mentioned above. By now we are all

aware of what AI can do in terms of managing and monitoring processes. But it can go a step further from just analysis and actually turn recommendations into actions to optimize your cloud best practices.

Rapid business transformation is a result of the merger between AI and cloud computing.


So far we have discussed how AI helps us in cloud computing. Cloud computing in return also

favors AI and returns the compliment.


Though artificial intelligence started much earlier than cloud computing, cloud computing and its technologies have improved AI very much. Cloud computing has been an effective catalyst.
