South African company Dotmodus achieves Google Cloud recognition

South African company Dotmodus achieves Google Cloud recognition

SAP HANA is now certified for Google Cloud Platform, as the company looks to extend its use of machine learning technology.

At the same time, some Google Cloud Platform customers talked about using the cloud's AI capabilities with their own services.

Rackspace will add Google to the list of cloud providers available to clients through its services, which so far includes OpenStack, VMware, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Web Services.

Google in an emailed statement said, "Kaggle is the best place to search and analyze public datasets, build machine learning models and grow your data science expertise".

While those wins provide a useful glimpse into what Google has been up to, the company also announced a set of new partnerships aimed at helping serve the needs of large customers. Now a private beta, the API uses deep learning models to provide information about content, enabling, for example, searches for content about baseball or dogs.

During the company's Cloud Next event in San Francisco Wednesday, Google unveiled its new Cloud Video Intelligence API.




Not only can the API detect objects within a video, like a baseball or baseball bat at a little league game, but it can also identify actions.

The Cloud Video Intelligence API is aimed at large media corporations to better categorize and manage their content. 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. With the new Video Intelligence API, "we are beginning to shine light on the dark matter of the digital universe", she said.

The pact will allow customers to run SAP's powerful database from laptops and other memory-constrained computers using streamlined HANA express edition software, while off-loading more complex tasks to Google's cloud delivery platform.

Another partnership showcased at Google Cloud Next was worldwide bank, HSBC. It's apparently impossible for anybody to talk about cloud services and machine learning without resorting to vague platitudes.

Google has reaffirmed its commitment to its cloud channel, introducing new incentives, rewards and training across all disciplines to make it more attractive for partners to sell all elements of Google Cloud. Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google's parent company Alphabet, said the company has spent $30 billion on its cloud strategy, and urged enterprises and developers to come aboard. "We're expanding the reach of Google Cloud significantly".
