Breakfast Delivers Google Cloud Insights

The chapter's Young AFCEANs hosted a Business Over Breakfast seminar in April featuring guest speaker Tom Wojszynski, Southeast regional manager for Google Cloud, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Montgomery, Alabama. Wojszynski discussed machine learning in the Google Cloud with a diverse audience of service members, civilians and industry professionals. He opened by providing a brief overview of his experience in the military and at Google. Wojszynski credits his success in part to his natural curiosity, and Google, he noted, appreciates curiosity as it lends itself to innovation. He discussed how Google uses innovation within the company for improvement. For example, Wojszynski said Google has the best big data processing because its cloud environment enables Google to expose big data platforms to world. This gives businesses the ability to process data in ways they never could before. He went on to discuss how Google is using machine learning in many of its consumer products, such as Gmail, YouTube and Google Photos. Google's machine learning also enables customers to build solutions that get better over time. Google Cloud Translation application programming interface (API) wasn't very good in the beginning, he said, but the more it was used and the more it was exposed to language, the better it became. Machine learning provides a lot of possibilities for business applications. Wojsznynski told the chapter that many call centers now are using Google's Cloud Natural Language API to get customers to the right call center attendant faster. With ever-expanding machine learning solutions, Google has become not just a search company but an artificial intelligence (AI) business. Wojszynski took questions from the audience, and networking followed his presentation.
