Cloud Provider Comparisons

Cloud Provider Comparisons: AWS vs Azure vs GCP – Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

Episode description

In Cloud Provider Comparisons, we take a look at the same cloud services across the three major public cloud providers – Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). In this video, we focus on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). We compare the major ‘building block’ services (those you can use without having to know much about ML), explainability and bias services, and ML infrastructure and platforms. If you’re curious about how the AI and ML services of AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform match up, join ACG Senior Training Architect Scott Pletcher and watch on to find out more!
