Werner Vogels, CTO of Amazon, shared his predictions about the future of cloud services. According to him, the distinction between physical and digital will disappear and AWS will continue to bring new intelligent capabilities to physical devices like Amazon’s Echo – a smart device connected to AWS to gain access to the Alexa intelligent assistant and control smart home devices, capabilities that, without the cloud, would have required far more computing power.
