5 Cloud Startups to Watch in 2011 # 3: Loggly

first_imgAs 2010 draws to a close we’re taking a look at a few cloud startups that show promise and that we haven’t covered on ReadWriteCloud.Loggly is a cloud-based log management service for system administrators, application developers and data analysts. Loggly can collect logs from multiple servers and aggregate them into one searchable location. The San Francisco based company was founded in 2009 and is funded by Trinity Ventures and True Ventures. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#cloud#saas Related Posts Like Netuitive, which we profiled yesterday, Loggly is using the cloud to simplify IT management. Most large IT environments have reached the point that monitoring all necessary logs isn’t humanly possible, making solutions like Loggly and Netuitive are extremely useful.Logs are transmitted to Loggly through an HTTPS connection and stored on Loggly’s servers. According to Green Data Center Blog Loggly uses Hadoop and Amazon Web Services to power its service. It’s free while in beta, but will have pricing starting at $99 a month when it graduates from beta.Logs can also be accessed through an API so enterprises can create custom uses for the service or conduct backups.

Ray Kurzweil, Father Of The Singularity, Is Going To Work At Google

first_imgRay Kurzweil, one of the most wide-eyed futurists around, is going to work at Google.Kurzweil is one of the foremost authors responsible for the popularity of the notion of technological singularity, the idea that artificial intelligence will someday (soon) reach a crescendo of self-improvement, kicking off an endlessly growing planetary intelligence and allowing us to transcend our limited humanity. He’s written multiple books about artificial intelligence, the singularity and transhumanism. He’s also intensely interested in human life extension and has written extensively about health and biology. On top of all that, he’s an inventor of musical instruments, and he’s worked on optical character recognition, text-to-speech and speech recognition technology.It’s in those last few areas that Kurzweil will be of most immediate use to Google. The KurzweilAI press release says he’s joining Google to “work on new projects involving machine learning and language processing.”Google has plenty of Kurzweilian technology in play already, with voice and text search that understands natural language and optical character and image recognition that allows search of text, images, and even video. Imagine how cool Google search will be when Project Glass glasses are a live, real-world search interface.But the next step of all those technologies is best described as artificial intelligence, the real Holy Grail for Kurzweil. If any company is going to bring about a singularity by computing endlessly on all the world’s information, it’s going to be Google.What an amazing, slightly terrifying combination.“I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Google to work on some of the hardest problems in computer science so we can turn the next decade’s ‘unrealistic’ visions into reality,” Kurzweil says.Kurzweil’s title will be Director of Engineering. He starts on Monday, December 17.Lead image courtesy of Shutterstock Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud jon mitchellcenter_img Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … Tags:#artificial intelligence#Google Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo…last_img read more
