Companies everywhere are moving everyday business processes over to the cloud, and AI is increasingly being given the reins in these tasks. As this massive digital transformation continues, the combination of serverless computing and AI promises to become the de facto standard for business-to-consumer platform development—and developers who can design, develop, implement, and maintain these systems will be in high demand! AI as a Service is a practical handbook to building and implementing serverless AI applications, without bogging you down with a lot of theory. Instead, you’ll find easy-to-digest instruction and two complete hands-on serverless AI builds in this must-have guide!
AI as a Service teaches you how to quickly harness the power of serverless computing and cloud-based AI services. After an introduction to the basics of this dynamic technology duo, you’ll dive right into your first hands-on serverless AI project: a system that can recognize images from arbitrary web pages.
In it you’ll explore tools like Amazon Rekognition for image analysis and techniques like deployment of cloud infrastructure, a crawler service, and a simple API. When you’ve mastered the concepts and skills in that fun and interesting project, you’ll move on to building a serverless to-do application that employs cloud-based AI tools like AWS Transcribe and Polly for speech-to-text and text-to-speech functionality and Lex for creating interactive chatbots.
When you’re finished with this essential book, you’ll have the skills to quickly build end-to-end serverless AI systems, making you indispensable as this rapidly emerging paradigm becomes the business standard!
