From the very beginning Google has been about data, our mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful and as it turns out while doing this we've had to learn a lot about dealing and working with data. Leveraging the power of data is at the core of everything we do at Google and Google Cloud Platform brings the tools we've used to get here to everyone.

Another Step on the Path to Widespread MaaS

The automotive industry and many robotics start-ups have been promising that autonomous cars are just a couple of years away for many years now. It feels like this "just a couple of years" has been perpetually kicked down the road, with only incremental gains each time. However, Cruise, the robotaxi arm of General Motors, has recently been given approval to start charging passengers in San Francisco. So, is this an enormous leap forward for robotaxis, or just another incremental gain?

Cybersecurity Tools to Protect Solar, Wind Power on the Grid

Solar panels and wind turbines, now projected to produce 44% of America's electricity by 2050, present cybersecurity challenges. They have sensors, controllers, actuators or inverters that are directly or indirectly connected to the internet. They're distributed far and wide across the country and the countryside. Many have insecure connectivity to legacy electric grid systems. They have complex physics. They're subject to advanced persistent threats. And there will be more and more of them going online.
