Cloud AI Product Marketing Lead Philippe Poutonnet and Director of Product Management Rajen Sheth
The impact of AI on the future of our economy is undeniable. Is your business ready to adopt AI? Are you able to move past the "how" of big data so you can obtain insights from it? At Google, data doesn’t lead the conversation with questions of how or where, instead data leads you straight to what’s next. Google Cloud AI presents an immediate opportunity for businesses to build and accelerate their AI strategy. In this session, you’ll get an overview of how Google Cloud AI can supercharge your AI strategy and help you efficiently infuse the power of AI into your business applications.
