Google Cloud gets a dedicated AI management platform • The Register

Google Cloud provides users with access to an AI platform that allows them to build, deploy, and manage AI projects in the cloud without requiring extensive data science knowledge. was built on Google Cloud itself and is now available on Google Cloud Marketplace as the first paid AI management platform, according to a blog post by CEO Tuncay Isik.

Isik said the platform was created to bring the benefits of AI and machine learning to small organizations, where adopting AI can be a big challenge if you don’t have the skills and resources available to Fortune 500 companies.

“My team of data scientists saw a real need for software that could democratize machine learning innovation by removing these common barriers,” he said in a statement.

The platform also includes lifecycle management features to monitor infrastructure usage and model behavior.

According to, its platform’s intuitive user interface and predictive analytics allow users to get set up in minutes and have models up and running in three to four weeks, as opposed to months for methods. existing tools for creating and deploying machine learning models. .

However, this assumes that you have the data needed to train your AI or machine learning model already stored on the Google Cloud Platform, as it is designed to be linked to data in storage buckets or to an SQL data source such as BigQuery. Once the data is imported, users can apply their own models in or use the platform to create a custom model.

The platform automates AI project tasks such as training and prediction to reduce time-consuming manual operations, according to Isik. This automation covers the production pipeline and includes features such as AutoML and a scheduler for recurring tasks.

In addition to supporting the deployment of AI and ML models, offers the ability to monitor its own infrastructure to track resource usage, as well as monitor model behavior to help users understand data changes over time, depending on the company. operates on a pay-as-you-go model with no long-term contracts, licenses, or per-user fees, according to Isik. As it is integrated with Google Cloud, spending on the platform is applied to each customer’s Google Cloud spending commitments. ®
