Google's Cloud AutoML makes it easier to build custom machine learning models

Google Cloud has introduced a new product called Cloud AutoML that helps businesses and developers with limited machine learning expertise easily build powerful custom machine learning systems.
 
"Currently, there are only thousands of deep learning researchers and a million data scientists across the world who can build advanced machine learning models. With Cloud AutoML, we want to help less-skilled developers build these models" said Fei-Fei Li, Chief Scientist of Google Cloud AI and ML.
 
With Cloud AutoML, businesses will be able to create a simple machine learning model in minutes to pilot their AI-enabled application or build out a full production-ready model within a day, said Jia Li, head of R&D, Google Cloud AI.
 
Among the first Cloud AutoML products being developed is Cloud AutoML Vision, a service that makes it easier to create custom machine learning models for image recognition.
 
The service provides a drag-and-drop interface that lets developers easily upload images, train and manage models, and then deploy those trained models directly on Google Cloud.
 
Li said the service was developed in collaboration with Google Brain and other Google AI teams and has been piloted with select clients like Disney and Zoological Society of London.
 
“Cloud AutoML’s technology is helping us build vision models to annotate our products with Disney characters, product categories, and colors. These annotations are being integrated into our search engine to improve the impact on guest experience through more relevant search results, expedited discovery, and product recommendations on shopDisney” said Mike White, CTO, and SVP, for Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media.
 
The Internet giant plans to expand it to other forms like speech, natural language, and video over the year. "We will gradually roll it out to all of Google Cloud APIs by the end of this year" said Rajen Sheth, senior director of product management, Google Cloud AI.
