Salesforce puts some meat on the bones of its Einstein AIMark Albertson / SiliconANGLE - 2 years ago
  • When Salesforce.com Inc. unveiled its new artificial intelligence platform in September of last year, the company chose a small, cartoonish figure with a bushy mustache and mop of unruly white hair to symbolize the most recent addition to its portfolio.
  • And there were hints that Salesforce could be sitting on a major breakthrough of its own in AI and deep learning, the method of enabling computers to learn on their own that has led to breakthroughs in image and speech recognition.
  • Before Benioff even took the stage on Monday afternoon, Salesforce released the news that it had formed a partnership with Google which will integrate the search giant’s Analytics 360 service with Salesforce products to track advertising and sales.
  • “We’re deeply integrating Google analytics into Salesforce,” said Benioff, who curiously did not have much else to say in his keynote about the major announcement.
