Google has also made its machine learning system TensorFlow free to anyone who wants it, and in July 2017 launched a new project to study and redesign the ways people interact with AI systems called People + AI Research initiative (PAIR).#
Amazon has also brought machine learning to AWS. Customers can use Lex to build conversational interfaces, Polly to turn text into speech, Rekognition to add images analysis to applications, Comprehend to find insights and relationships in text, or SageMaker to build, train, and deploy machine learning models at scale.
The company has been upping its AI efforts since the April 2016 acquisition of MetaMind, a startup specialising in deep learning. Prior to the acquisition, MetaMind had developed a unique system that runs on a short-term memory to answer questions in natural language. 1e1e36bf2d
