Salesforce has introduced new Einstein Platform Services and APIs including Einstein Sentiment, Einstein Intent, and Einstein Object Detection. Developers can use these services to build CRM apps that leverage machine learning capabilities such as image recognition and natural language processing.
Google has announced a large overhaul of its Cloud Speech-to-Text product (formerly the Google Cloud Speech API). Google Cloud Speech-to-Text now supports a selection of pre-built models, automatic punctuation, recognition metadata, and standard service level agreement (SLA).
