The Relationship Between the Cloud & AI Explained

Cory Stieg
May 1, 2024

As AI finds its way into so many aspects of our lives, it’s even more important to understand the infrastructure that powers this valuable tool. That includes the cloud, which is a big part of how AI apps are deployed and scaled.  

Cloud computing basically refers to internet-delivered services like servers, storage, databases, networks, software, and analytics. The cloud provides computational power and ample data storage that’s needed to train, develop, and deploy cutting-edge AI models.  

If you’re looking for a way to get started with cloud technology, we recently launched a collection of free cloud courses. These courses provide you with foundational knowledge in core cloud providers including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and CompTIA Cloud Essentials+. With these cloud courses, you have the option to dive in and explore for free before committing to a cloud certification program. They’re also an excellent way to complement the in-demand AI and coding skills that you’re already learning. 

Ahead, we’ll break down the relationship between cloud computing and AI with insight from Michael Shannon, a Senior Analyst in Tech and Dev at Skillsoft, who developed the curriculum for many of our cloud courses.
