If tech could claim just one theme this year, it would, hands down, be AI. It’s absolutely everywhere, especially, one could argue, in the cloud. And if you’re going to talk about AI in the cloud, it’s tough to imagine a better candidate for that discussion than Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud.
Just last month during Cloud Next, its annual partner and developer conference, Google Cloud announced a flurry of AI-related products — including custom processors, generative AI products for developers and security teams, and an expanded AI assistant across Google Workspace.
But Kurian’s conversation at Disrupt is more than products-on-parade. It’ll cover Kurian’s big bet on AI and his desire to build an open ecosystem of AI partners, as well as preview what’s next for Google Cloud and AI in general.
Don’t miss this discussion about the future of AI and the cloud.
