Google Launches Cloud Based API for Human Language Understanding

The new API platform will strengthen its existing intelligence services for a deeper understanding of human communication in natural language.  Google Corporation is aggressively pursuing its ambitions in the domain of cloud computing technologies by providing the innovative ideas with the help of cutting edge technologies. It has announced a new cloud based API platform in the beta version that will understand the human communication in natural languages.

It was also announced that this application would strengthen the previously launched cloud service of the company named as “Parsey McParseface”. Both of these applications have been released in the beta version yet, but the full version will be released soon. It was further informed through the official statement that the main objective of launching of this application is to allow the software developers to create such applications that can understand the communication between the human in a more natural way that the existing services.

The statement further elaborated that Google would be a bit closer in the fierce race to capture the bigger share in the cloud marketplace. This platform will help the software engineers to cope with the challenges that arise in solving the complex mechanism of human communication among the human being. This platform would encourage the developers to develop more advanced applications that provide the intelligent assistant service through cloud automation. The chat bots would be more efficient and effective than the existing forms of automated communication with the human.

While talking about the technical aspects of the platforms, it was further explained that the newly launched application would listen to the human communication, translate it into the text for the software, which will understand, analyze the objective, location, behavior and other information regarding the communication and then it will create the response to that communication in a more effective way.

Google is focusing on multiple innovative projects that are in synch with its wide spread service portfolio and expertise in the business intelligence. Newly launched two cloud based APIs would complement each other to create much stronger and robust platform for the developers so that they can create some innovative ideas and projects.

Many people in the industry believe that Google is going very aggressively into the domain of cloud computing services during many past years, especially in private and hybrid cloud services to provide a tough competition to its major competitors, such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, and others.
