Trying to figure out what Google is offering in the article at this link https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/17/technology/google-sells-ai.html.

I also need to know if their offerings are limited to visual scans and if so, the range of photographical types it can work with (heat maps for example, or continuous video feed).

We are a small road construction company looking for ways to start using AI on some of our projects so I am in the process of gathering information on exactly what it can do.

  • $\begingroup$ Ai can work on any photographically types...It can work on any application your company might have...Ai only stutters at abstract problems like processing language...If you have definite jobs where the outcome is kinda definite ai can easily deal with it...It can process huge amt of info to come to that conclusion...I didn't red the article, but since no one was rplying so I thought I might help u out $\endgroup$ – DuttaA Jan 25 '18 at 11:18
  • $\begingroup$ I've tried using Google as a vendor for many things now. I'll wait until they are guaranteeing results before I'd give them my cc number again. Same with FaceBook. I'm with those who say, "If I want something to work well, I should clear my calendar and write it myself." $\endgroup$ – FauChristian Jul 27 '18 at 8:25

Google is just one of the vendors for AI and their initial AI self-service is limited to image analysis. Their are other AI vendors (Microsoft, Amazon) that have other services also. AI is definitely capable of continuous video feed analysis. The self-driving car technology uses live video feed analysis. Are you exploring AI in general or specific use cases? I did a presentation on AI use cases for oil & gas engineering and construction that could give you some ideas.

Google AI offers recognition AI of images, sounds, heat maps, whatever. There are many places that offer this and is not unique to Google AI. AI works on data, so anything that can be turned into data is good to go.

The article you're linking to doesn't really reveal anything valuable to the consumer; rather it is playing up the hype of Google making AI that can configure AI.
