How Artificial Intelligence can Transform Cloud Computing

Cloud computing has changed the way we store share and gather the information. Cloud computing is the concept of storing, managing and processing the huge amount of data over the internet rather than on a personal computer or local server. This has improved the speed of data exchange as cloud servers are more powerful and faster than the local servers. Artificial intelligence application is making the cloud computing smarter and faster. Machine learning algorithms can collect and analyze the huge amount of data and help in making decisions.
