Google is shutting down the Cloud Prediction API on April 30, 2018. After this date, the API will no longer be accessible. The company is recommending developers migrate applications to the Google Cloud Machine Learning Engine, a managed service that can be used to build machine learning models.
RAISR, Google's proof-of-concept, neural-network-backed image sampler, represents a fundamental shift to the visual paradigm of the web. Though it's true impact is still a ways away, it marks the point where people in the front-end world should start to get very interested in machine learning.
