Google expects to put predictions everywhere.
The company just quietly announced that a prediction API will be added to its cloud developer suite of products. That means that people can build software that analyzes data being uploaded to its online storage, then suggest actions as new data comes in.
The initial uses are likely to be in things like Web page design (you increase the parts people are looking at, and rethink the others) or sentiment analysis in online marketing. But if the service holds up, other more complex applications will probably come along.
