Google has announced the launch of a new cloud-based machine learning (ML) platform named AutoML that will aim to make AI more accessible to those with limited experience in developing advanced technology programs.

“Cloud AutoML helps businesses with limited ML expertise start building their own high-quality custom models by using advanced techniques like learning2learn and transfer learning from Google,” said Google. “We believe Cloud AutoML will make AI experts even more productive, advance new fields in AI and help less-skilled engineers build powerful AI systems they previously only dreamed of.”

The initiative will look to expand the firm’s existing community of data scientists and ML researchers called Kaggle, whilst also looking to attract more companies, with currently 10,000 firms using Google’s Cloud AI services including Rolls Royce Marine and Ocado.

The company has revealed that its first Cloud AutoML release will be AutoML vision, a service that is specifically aimed at image recognition, with Google claiming that the early stages of testing have proved to be accurate and positive.

The announcement comes in the same week as Google stating that it will look to expand its cloud-based services through the construction of three new subsea international cables and launch of five new data centre regions across the globe.
