Google Cloud and Simple Technology Solutions (STS)—a Google Cloud partner and small business specializing in multi-cloud solutions for the federal government—announced they are working with the U.S. Navy to modernize the maintenance and repairs inspection process for Navy vessels and facilities. STS will use Google Cloud artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies on …

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? Perhaps not, some say. And if someone is there to hear it? If you think that means it obviously did make a sound, you might need to revise that opinion. We have found a new …

Pandemics and natural disasters cause pain and suffering to millions worldwide and can challenge the very foundations of human belief systems. They can be particularly challenging for those who believe in an all-knowing and righteous God. The Lisbon earthquake of 1755, for example, shook the previously unquestioned faith of many and led Voltaire to question …

This week CSAIL will be launching a new initiative focused on machine learning applications. [email protected], or “[email protected]”, will focus on current challenges in machine learning to prepare industry members for digital transformation in their workplaces. “From manufacturing and retail to healthcare and pharmaceuticals, companies that know how to leverage machine learning across their business will …

Combing through historical seismic data, researchers using a machine learning model have unearthed distinct statistical features marking the formative stage of slow-slip ruptures in the earth’s crust months before tremor or GPS data detected a slip in the tectonic plates. Given the similarity between slow-slip events and classic earthquakes, these distinct signatures may help geophysicists …

An organization’s ability to quickly detect and respond to anomalies is critical to success in a digitally transforming culture. Google Cloud customers can strengthen this ability by using rich artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) capabilities in conjunction with an enterprise-class streaming analytics platform. We refer to this combination of fast data and advanced analytics as real-time AI. There are …

Cloud computing provides the power and speed needed for Machine Learning (ML), and allows you to easily scale up and down. However, this also means that costs may spin out of control if you don’t plan ahead, which is especially fraught now, given that businesses are particularly cost conscious. To use Google Cloud effectively for …

PyTorch is helping to power a new generation of AI-enhanced farming machines. For farmers, weeds pose a very real threat to the health of crops at a time when global population growth is raising food demand while also making resources such as land and water increasingly scarce. Seeking solutions to helping farmers produce more food with fewer …

In June, OpenAI unveiled the largest language model in the world, a text-generating tool called GPT-3 that can write creative fiction, translate legalese into plain English, and answer obscure trivia questions. It’s the latest feat of intelligence achieved by deep learning, a machine learning method patterned after the way neurons in the brain process and store information. But it …

Business intelligence workflows at any organization can help the business make better decisions, like where to expand your company and how to most effectively deploy your resources. My work as a data analyst, open data advocate, and former lead of the Google Cloud Public Datasets Program has given me a broad view into how data teams develop …
