NEW: Becoming an Industry Thought Leader

Cloudian
Teaching the Machines

Michael Tso, CEO of Cloudian, talks about how AI and Machine Learning is paving the way for the future in this Forbes contribution:

“A large corporation looking at AI to help it streamline its business operations, discover new and untapped market opportunities, solve complex problems and advance its position in the marketplace. The historical data from the firm’s various departments — sales, marketing, engineering — provide the keys to training new AI tools to reveal new growth potentials.

Similarly, research facilities are using AI technology to unlock the secrets of the universe, from mapping genomes to finding cures for diseases to uncovering ways to better protect sensitive data from cyberthreats. Again, the underlying data is the key to training AI tools that can then find patterns too complex or anomalies too subtle for human eyes.”
