In another demo, we saw a simple search for "beach" and was able to find videos which had scenes from beaches in them, complete with timestamps.

Google parent Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has always been a major force in the data science and machine learning world, and its latest acquisition will only solidify its strong positioning even further.

Byron Connolly travelled to San Francisco as a guest of Google.

That's the Google Cloud Next conference in San Francisco this morning, where Google Cloud announced a new partner program created to help companies running Windows migrate to its cloud computing platform.

Some of Kaggle's features include running programming contests to crowdsource machine learning solutions.

Bernd Leukert, Executive Board Member at SAP, stated in a company release, "I am excited to announce the general availability of SAP HANA on GCP to deliver real-time insights and run mission-critical applications and analytics on a scalable and secure cloud infrastructure". Over the past year, Greene said, Google Cloud engineers have done 500 releases on the platform, and the company has ramped up partnerships as well.

The 49ers will save about half of that amount because the rest of his $8 million signing bonus will count toward this year's cap. The former New York Jets wideouts caught 64 passes for 667 yards and three touchdowns.

"Kaggle is the best place to search and analyse public datasets, build machine learning models and grow your data science expertise", she said. This new API, which is now in Private Beta, employs deep learning and the TensorFlow framework to analyze online videos and pick out pertinent details for tagging purposes.

Google on Wednesday also introduced its Cloud Video Intelligence API, providing an ability to search video for specific content.

Google's artificial intelligence breaks down the video into shots, and provides an analysis of the content of each shot along with a probability score. The new cloud product ultimately sits at the intersection between Google's established search business and its pivot toward a video-first focus in other areas, and should be a welcome addition for marketers, publishers and developers as well.

The Video Intelligence API might not only serve to collect more raw, granular consumer data - who's searching for what products? - but also might mine more value from those data sets. A demo they showed at the conference was able to identify the breed of dog in a video, and also detect that it was part of a commercial. "Ninety-five percent of the world's data is not in the cloud". "Cloud is no longer just where people store things, or for a startup or sharing files", said Greene.

It has previously said it wants to build a cloud environment for enterprise Windows "that leads the industry". Please don't attempt to duplicate this.
