People’s overall increasing dependency on AI and IoT (IoT Announcements from AWS re:Invent 2017) has given new goals to the cloud computing infrastructure holders. The premises enfolding within this newly emerging subfield of Information and Technology are indeed very vast in which all the domains ranging from minimal smartphones to high end robots are coming together to share the common resource. Firms are developing machineries that require the least dependency on human resource. The attempts are rather to give the man-made machinery autonomy to a great extent over the resources it needs to utilize in order to become fully functional. Clearly, the intention of eliminating the human intervention is also on run.
In order to gain that autonomy over the soft resources, the inventors will have to depend on a mediator which will assist the “smart machines” gain their functional ability, and, cloud computing seems to be the only and the last resort. The “study material” for the machines will be store retrieved and used by them through cloud means. As the cloud computing is already taking over major domains of human efforts such as data storage, this technological advancement will result in unprecedented impacts on global economy, business and world in general.
The integrated cloud services would be even more beneficial than the current cloud services. The current usage of cloud involves computing, storage and networking but the intelligent cloud will multiply the capabilities of the cloud by rendering a capability of learning from the vast amount of data stored in the cloud, to build up predictions and analyze situations. This will result in a smart advancement in the IT field where tasks are performed much efficiently.
The large amounts of data stored in the cloud serves as a source of information for the machines to gain their functional state. The millions of functions happening daily on cloud computing will all provide a source of information for the machine to learn from. The whole process will equip the machine applications with sensory capabilities. The applications will be able to perform cognitive functions and make decisions best suited for them for the desired goal.
Even though the intelligent cloud is in its infantile age, the premises are predicted to be largely increasing in the coming years and revolutionize the world in the same way the internet did. The expected are that would utilize the cognitive computing will spread over the systemsof healthcare and hospitality, business and even personal lives.
Changing Artificial Intelligence infrastructure
with the help of intelligent cloud, AI as a platform service makes the process of intelligent automation easier for users by taking control of the complexities of the process. This will further increase the capabilities of cloud computing, in return increasing demand for the cloud. The intelligent will define the future. The interdependency of cloud computing and artificial intelligence will somewhat become the essence soaring realities.
New dimensions for IoT
AS we are aware how IoT has overtaken our lives and created an undeniable dependency over gadgets, cloud that will assist the machine leaning of these gadgets are increasing rapidly too. The smart sensors that take cars into cruise control will apprehend their source of data from the cloud only. In short, cloud computing will become the long term memory for IoT from where they can retrieve the data for solving in-time problems. The massive web of interconnectivity of various machines will generate and operate on a massive amount of data saved in that very cloud. This will expand the horizons of cloud computing and it will become as needful to machines as water is for humans, in coming years.
Personal assistance with minute ease
As we have already seen the likes of Jarvis, Siri, Cortana and Google doing great in the market, it is not absurd to think of a personal assistant existing in every metropolitan home by the next decade. These assistants make life easier for individuals through pre-coded voice recognition that also gives a feel of human touch to machines. The responses are generally very common and operate on a limited set of fed information. However, these assistants are very likely to be developed in a finer way so that their capabilities will not remain limited. Through increasing use of autonomous cognition, personal assistance will attain a state of reliability where it can replace human interaction. The role or cloud computing will be supremely vital in this regard, as it will become the heart and the brain of these machines.
During extensive application, the task of the Intelligent cloud will be to make the tech world even smarter—autonomous learning coupled with the capabilities of figuring and rectifying real time anomalies. In the same way, the business Intelligence will also become smarter wherein along with identifying and rectifying faults, it will be able to predict future strategies in advance. Armed with proactive analytics and real-time dashboards, the businesses will operate upon predictive analytics that processes previously collected data, makes real time suggestions or even future predictions. These predictions from current trends and suggestions for actions would make things easier on leaders.
Revolutionizing the world
Fields like banking, education, hospital, and general services etc. would be able to make use of the intelligent cloud enhancing the precision and efficient of services they provide. Consider for example having an assistant in hospital which reduces the doctor’s customary load of decision making by analyzing the case, making comparisons and prompting new approaches to the treatment.
With the rapid development of both machine learning and the cloud, it seems in the future, cloud computing will become much easier to handle, scale and protect with machine learning. Along with that, the wider the business initiatives harping on the cloud will need machine learning to be implemented, to make it more efficient, to the point that we will have no cloud service that operates as it operates today.
