Artificial Intelligence and Cloud computing are changing the way we run business as they are, but when you combine the two you are left with an incredibly powerful solution that could revolutionise the way that we operate now. This combination can broaden opportunities for companies globally, so let’s take a deeper look at both of these technologies and how they could benefit your business.

Cloud Computing

This is a style of computing where scalable IT-enabled solutions are delivered using Internet technologies. The demand for computer systems and data storage that don’t require human management is growing rapidly as more business owners realise the benefits of a cloud-based solution.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence refers to when a computer system is able to perform tasks that usually require the presence of a human, such as decision-making and speech recognition. AI systems apply logic-based techniques and advanced analysis to interpret events and take actions based on what they have understood.

Cloud-Based AI

So combining those two technologies together, you get cloud-based AI. This is where the machine-learning capabilities of AI with a cloud-based computing environment provide intuitive and immersive experiences to users. A great example of cloud-based AI are digital assistants, such as an Alexa. You can use a device like that to control smart functions within intelligent homes, such as switching the lights on and off.

Cloud-based AI can also be different types of cloud-based services that work together to integrate AI into applications. Global public cloud providers such as Amazon offer a range of AI resources for developers, which can be used to:

  1. Build speech and image recognition
  2. Train custom machine-learning models
  3. Analyse large sets of data

Benefits of Cloud-Based AI

Cloud-based AI solutions can help increase efficiency, productivity and also because they give you a better insight into data, more cost-effective business decisions can be made. Integrating AI into SaaS (software-as-a-service) solutions means that businesses can get a better overview of how customers are interacting with their brand. With this knowledge we can then look at ways in which to improve the customer journey, giving them the best experience possible.

Here are some of the core benefits of using cloud-based AI:

  1. There is no need to set up and manage the infrastructure for hosting AI applications.
  2. You can access machine learning models and AI-relevant data that someone else has gathered.
  3. You can use external cloud solutions if you lack AI experts within your business.
  4. You can save time and resources which can be allocated to other areas of the business.

Future Possibilities 

Sometimes it is scary looking into the future when we have so much automation coming into our lives. The more you can educate yourself now though, the better position you will be in further on down the line. Here are some of the most useful applications of cloud-based AI that we can think of, can you add to the list?

  1. Better data management – AI tools can improve the entire process of data management as you will be able to calculate real-time solutions.
  2. Cloud-based retail – a cloud-based pricing model can provide extra information about demand, inventory levels, competitor sales, market trends and more. You will have so much data at your fingertips.
  3. Cognitive virtual assistants – algorithms that use speech recognition and language processing are capable of imitating the human brain! Take automated chatbots for example, they are quickly replacing human customer service teams.
