Microsoft and Nordcloud partner to spread Azure AI across Europe
Microsoft and Nordcloud are partnering up to " boost the spread of AI" across Europe.
AI and cloud computing have become a major focus for Microsoft, pushing the company to roll out new services and partnerships as part of its bid to "democratize artificial intelligence." Microsoft's latest partnership in this arena is with Nordcloud, described as "Europe's fastest growing public cloud provider."
In a post announcing the partnership, Nordcloud says that the two companies will join hands to "boost the spread of AI" and machine learning services to Nordcloud customers across Europe. From Nordcloud:
Nordcloud says that its customers will be able to get started quickly, as many of the tools have already been taught with "vast quantities of data."
This partnership comes as Microsoft is making AI an ever-growing part of its portfolio, ranging from adding more AI smarts to Office 365 and Cortana, to establishing partnerships for an AI-powered health bot project (opens in new tab). Microsoft has also focused on developers, recently announcing the launch new tools (opens in new tab) to help them build conversational bots.
