Google Buys Kaggle

Google has announced the acquisition of Kaggle, a start-up that hosts a number of data scientists.

Founded in 2010, Kaggle is home to the world’s largest community of data scientists and machine—learning enthusiasts.

More than 8 lakh data experts use Kaggle to explore, analyse and understand the latest updates in machine learning and data analytics.

Kaggle and Google Cloud will continue to support machine learning training and deployment services while offering the community the ability to store and query large datasets.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, the two public clouds that are bigger than Google Cloud, also offer data science services.

Google Cloud already provides Cloud Machine Learning Engine, among other managed services for working on data.
