Today there is a trend of convergence between the technologies of cloud computing and artificial intelligence (intellect), it gives a clear impetus to the development of innovation in each industry. It is also worth noting that cloud technologies are intensively used in large companies and small, giving the possibility of stimulating the market of information technologies with the use of IR (AND). The further integration of these technologies into a single information model will create for all businesses high-performance tool for more effective management of their business.

What to expect from combining these technologies?

It is necessary to emphasize the significance of the technologies of artificial intelligence (intellect) and cloud processing of computer data, both in General and individually, who set the pace in the market of information technologies now and in the near future. According to the research, according to IBM, cognitive benefits, according to 65% of specialists, "it is very important to build successful strategies for doing business".

More than 50% of specialists also agree that "Technology AI have significant value for the transition to the digital space" and "needs to stay competitive in the future." As a result, the technology of artificial intelligence (intellect) is the technology of tomorrow.

It should be clarified that a direct relationship exists between these two high-tech solutions, which means that with increasing demand on the technology of artificial intelligence (it is projected that by 2019 it will reach 31 billion U.S. dollars), the demand to the cloud for processing computer data will also increase. However, it is expected that the modern market of cloud computing will reach $ 146 billion in the present year 2017.

The advantages of using cloud for processing computer data is obvious and has already been proved, including the reduction of financial cost, increase the ability of the software to upgrades, greater flexibility, and more.

But now you need to understand how Association of artificial intelligence (intellect) and cloud technologies on processing of computer data will occur in practice, and what should we expect from this merger. According to the IBM survey, 90% of respondents confirmed the need to use cloud technology in artificial intelligence (intellect).

Products such as the Internet of things (IoT) or mobile phones and computers at the time, asked a positive trend in the use and development of clouds, so it is expected that the application of artificial intelligence (intellect) will cause the greatest shift in the field of information technology.

According to analyst Tom Austin, of research and Advisory firm Gartner as one of the recent changes in the development of cloud technologies "is the integration of mobile and cloud technologies, which smartphone would act as a tool for the implementation of cloud services". In this regard, it is expected that the next major achievement will be the merging of artificial intelligence (intellect) with cloud computing, processing of computer data.

How to combine these technologies will affect their development?

In fact, the cloud represents a huge amount of data that is used in the technology of artificial intelligence (intellect). At the same time technology of artificial intelligence (intellect) can provide the cloud even more data as you use.

Currently, Microsoft Azure offers more than 30 cognitive services categories: visualization, speech, linguistics, and knowledge. And these applications much more than we could ever imagine.

Currently businesses are investing heavily in the technologies of artificial intelligence (intellect) to develop software that can understand and learn human speech. The most famous application of this kind of Assistant from Google, Apple's Siri, Microsoft's Cortana, Alexa Bixby from Amazon or from Samsung.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) from Amazon – are already using the technology artificial intelligence (intellect), adding "analysis of forecasts — collect data for potential trends cloud storage services to information, while opening developed for internal use machine learning algorithms".

The potential of artificial intelligence (intelligence) that can learn never-ending supply of data from the cloud are virtually endless. Software face recognition can help to improve the system of control and security, various documents can be translated properly and correctly without the need of any change on the part of specialists, and even a simple automated customer service will seem absolutely different from what we have now.

By combining the technologies of artificial intelligence (intellect) and cloud processing of computer data, it will be possible to bring all these possibilities into reality. Numerous servers around the world that are connected to cloud databases store a significant amount of information that is available to use the technologies of artificial intelligence (intellect) to solve the set tasks. Also, there is the AI's ability to convey a new obtained in the course of processing information in the cloud for further work with other systems and technologies.

For example, it is now possible organizations "using IBM Watson to fight cyber crime," to train the supercomputer Watson to those or other actions, if he will face any unauthorised virus attack in the network. Because Watson constantly learns and stores the necessary information and functionality become more effective.

But currently there is still a problem, which is that this supercomputer still makes mistakes, which would not allow people, for example, to assume that the ransomware can specify its location". Thus, while information technology will not work on a newer and higher level, will remain the need for human intervention in these processes.

The fact is that although both technologies can exist independently, but 55% of users prefer services based on cloud computing and platform as a service PaaS and software as a service SaaS to develop the right strategic decisions being made in the technologies of artificial intelligence (intellect).

AI had already been adopted for use in the development of products and services innovative technologies, as well as in the field of automation, IT-technologies and automation of business processes.

What will happen next?

Sundar Pichai, Google's CEO, believes that "they have reached the point where artificial intelligence (intelligence) and machine learning will begin to have a much greater impact on the company itself and its customers using cloud technologies", adding that "we will develop the direction from the mobile services in the world of AI". The first step to take advantage of the merger of two technologies (artificial intelligence and cloud computing computer information) will be using public clouds to provide services to its customers. Gartner's Aust explains: "You have to use the cloud to access large pools of publicly available information".

With the development of cloud-based systems are artificial intelligence (the intelligence) to gain new knowledge. Yes, now there is still a need in correcting errors committed by these supercomputers, but in the future with the development of technology this will not be needed.

The company will use the rapidly growing crowdsourcing data using cloud technology through machine-learning algorithms to get the AI correctly and to recognize faces, words and more.

All major IT companies, agree that artificial intelligence (intelligence) "will be the basis for the next level of programming," says Eric Schmidt, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the company Alphabet (a holding company owning several companies previously owned by Google Inc, and Google Inc including).

Many experts agree that this 2017 technology artificial intelligence (intellect) will become commonplace in our lives. The merger of the two technologies of cloud computing and AI, will undoubtedly affect every area of activity.
