Cloud-based technologies were pioneered more than fifteen years ago and today we are seeing cloud infrastructure all around us – and even in space. The cloud has allowed what was once science fiction to become science fact. Models and techniques in the artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) realm have improved dramatically. Data has become abundant, and our ability to make sense of it has become practically automatic. AI/ML and data processing are just some of the technologies supported by the cloud today. None of these technologies is replacing humans, merely augmenting how we engage with the world. Supported by the cloud, the world of technology will continue to revolutionise the world around us and beyond. In this lecture we will look at the what and how of the cloud supported technologies that are set to change the world in 2023 and beyond.
