Cloud AI building blocks

Easily infuse AI into your existing applications or build entirely new intelligent applications across a broad spectrum of use cases.

AI building blocks make it easy to add sight, language, conversation, and structured data into your applications.


  • Vision

    Derive insights from images in the cloud or at the edge.

  • Video

    Enable powerful content discovery and engaging video experiences.



  • Translation

    Dynamically detect and translate between languages.

  • Natural Language

    Reveal the structure and meaning of text through machine learning.

Structured data

  • AutoML Tables

    Automatically build and deploy state-of-the-art machine learning models on structured data.

  • Recommendations AI

    Deliver highly personalized product recommendations at scale.

  • Cloud Inference API

    Quickly run large-scale correlations over typed time-series datasets.

You can use just one product or combine several building blocks to construct the solution that’s right for you.

Customers using AI building blocks

At Keller Williams we have a huge focus on technology and on innovating to make our real estate franchise stand out to customers. We are planning to use AutoML Vision to identify specific items or elements in agent listing photographs, such as ‘modern’ or ‘granite countertops.’ This will make it easier for our customers to find their perfect home!

Two types of AI building blocks

There are two types of building blocks: AutoML for custom models and APIs for pre-trained models. You can use them individually or in combination.


Custom models

From identifying wear on tires to classifying maps and legal documents, Cloud AutoML products use Google's state-of-the-art transfer learning and neural architecture search technology to empower you to build domain-specific custom models that increase your accuracy for a variety of use cases.


Pre-trained models

For common use cases, you can immediately start using our proven, pre-trained APIs without worrying about training models. And as Google makes breakthroughs in AI research, you'll always have access to the latest fully trained models.
