C3 AI and Google Cloud have joined forces to bolster the application of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions across multiple industries.
The companies will work together to support customers in building and deploying machine learning (ML) models more effectively. With the entire portfolio of C3 AI’s enterprise AI applications now available on Google Cloud’s global infrastructure, the companies will work closely together to ensure C3’s AI applications utilise the accuracy and scale of multiple Google Cloud products, including Google Kubernetes Engine, Google BigQuery, and Vertex AI.
Built on a common foundation of Google Cloud’s infrastructure, AI, machine learning (ML) and data analytics capabilities, C3 AI’s enterprise AI application will interoperate with Google Cloud’s portfolio of current and future industry solutions.
The partnership will help customers solve real-life industry challenges in a number of diverse sectors, including manufacturing, logistics, financial services and healthcare.
“Combining the innovation, leadership, scale, and go-to-market expertise of Google Cloud with the substantial business value delivered from C3 AI applications, this partnership will dramatically accelerate the adoption of enterprise AI applications across all industry segments,” said Thomas M. Siebel, C3.ai CEO.
“Google Cloud and C3 AI share the vision that artificial intelligence can help businesses address real-world challenges and opportunities across multiple industries,” added Thomas Kurian, CEO at Google Cloud. “We believe that by delivering C3 AI’s applications on Google Cloud, and by partnering to address specific industry use cases with AI, we can help customers benefit more quickly and at greater scale.”
“Organisations across industries are accelerating their digital transformations with cloud-based solutions, purpose-built to deliver specific business outcomes,” said Ritu Jyoti, Group Vice President, AI and Automation Research at IDC. “This new partnership between C3 AI and Google Cloud represents an acceleration of this trend, as the two companies partner to expand the application of AI-powered solutions in the enterprise.”
Jim Snabe, former Co-CEO, SAP AG, also commented: “This is fundamentally game-changing for the hyperscale computing market. Google Cloud is changing the competitive discussion from CPU seconds and gigabyte-hours, to enterprise AI applications producing enormous value for customers, shareholders, and society at large.”
