The recent years of AI has grown out of labs and created a transformative power for a vast range of industries. But, while we take it for granted that AI and Cloud come hand in hand, I’ll show you an argument one step further: AI should be Cloud Native. A set of industry statistics lead to this conclusion with three fundamental trends: infrastructure goes to cloud, core software systems go online, and data pairs with intelligence. These are trends we have witnessed in Alibaba’s own business growth, and we believe such experience would help AI to land successfully in wider industry applications with a cloud native movement.
