Google just made it a lot easier to build your very own custom AI system.
The difficulty of developing AI systems has created a race to recruit talent, and it means that only big companies with deep pockets can usually afford to build their own bespoke AI algorithms.
“We need to scale AI out to more people,” Fei-Fei Li, chief scientist at Google Cloud, said ahead of the launch today. Cloud computing is one of the keys to making AI more accessible. Several companies have been testing Google Cloud AutoML for the past few months. Google researchers have been testing the limits of automating AI for some time now.
More recently, two Google scientists used reinforcement learning-a technique inspired by the way animals learn through positive feedback-to automatically improve a deep-learning system.
