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.

GoogleGreatResponder.com  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.

Microsoft Wins Overseas Datacenter Data Access Litigation in Federal Court

The verdict of the federal court will help cloud service providers to maintain high security and privacy of data stored in the overseas data centers.

Federal court rulingGreatResponder.com  A federal court verdict regarding the government access to the customer data located in overseas data center that was awaited for over one year has proved to be a shot in the arm for many cloud service providers across the United States of America, especially Microsoft Corporation, which was fighting legally against the magistrate judgement delivered back in May 2014.

According to the earlier judgement delivered by the magistrate, the government agencies have authority to force the cloud service providers to allow the access to the data of the customers located in the overseas data centers. The latest decision in federal court has overturned that decision and delivered the judgement that the government cannot force the Microsoft to give access to the customer data stored in the Ireland data center.

The main reason for this litigation was the access that the government agencies wanted to have to the email server of Microsoft located at the Dublin, Ireland data center. The decision of the magistrate was challenged by Microsoft in the federal court later.

The detailed ruling consists of the 43 pages that clearly highlight that the Stored Communication Act SCA does not allow any government agencies to force the concerned cloud service providers to provide the access to the customer data located in the foreign countries. “Congress did not intend the SCA’s warrant provisions to apply extraterritorially. The SCA warrant in this case may not lawfully be used to compel Microsoft to product to the government the contents of a customer’s email account stored exclusively in Ireland. We therefore reverse the District Court’s denial of Microsoft’s motion to quash; we vacate its order holding Microsoft in civil contempt of court; and we remand this case to the District Court with instructions to quash the warrant insofar as it demands user content stored outside of the United States,”the ruling further maintained.

The decision was welcomed by Microsoft official Mr. Brad Smith in his official statement. He wrote, “Since the day we filed this case, we’ve underscored our belief that technology needs to advance, but timeless values need to endure. Privacy and the proper rule of law stand among these timeless values.”

The US department of justice was very disappointed over this verdict of the federal court.

Prospective Cloud Growth in EMEA despite Brexit Blow, Says IDC

EMEA regions noticing encouraging growth rate of over 17% in cloud infrastructure with total revenue of about $1.3 billion.

EMEA RegionsGreatResponder.com  Many reports were showing discouraging indications on the cloud data centers and other infrastructure across the European area, which was also feared to leave bad impact on the other markets like Middle East and Africa. But, the latest research results released by the IDC Research Company indicate the trends otherwise.

According the new research, the growth in the cloud infrastructure business across the EMEA regions was recorded at about 17% higher than previous figures. The total revenue of cloud infrastructure grew to $1.3 billion during the first quarter of this fiscal year. The ratio of public cloud of this revenue stands at about $0.6 billion while the total revenue of private cloud stands at about $0.8 billion in the first quarter.

According to the research study findings, the revenue of this regions associated with the cloud infrastructure may cross $10 billion by 2020. This growth will boost the expenditures in the cloud infrastructure at a rate of about 46.4% on an average. The main areas of the IT spending are expected to remain Ethernet switches, servers, and data storage devices.

While talking about the impact of the Brexit, Group Research Analyst at IDC Infrastructure in European region, Mr. Kamil Gregor said, “Our forecast for the UK may be adjusted downward in the following quarter. Other EMEA markets are expected to remain largely unaffected.”

The report also forecast that the total spending in IT infrastructure will increase at about 15.5% in the year 2016. The total spending in the IT infrastructure will cross the $37.1 billion mark this year.

According to another recent report from the Forrester Research Inc, the business in the cloud computing domain will remain as usual across the globe despite the big hype of Brexit impact. The senior analyst of the firm, Paul Miller, in his official statement regarding the Brexit impact said, “Most workloads will continue, largely unaffected by the political re-positioning. Brexit doesn’t break most of the cloud-based usage models already in place. … If those cloud-based workloads are valuable enough to the business, they will survive Brexit.”

Many other experts in the IT industry suggest that the impact of the Brexit will be a little more desirable for AWS businesses because of its widespread operations in other regions of the globe.
