The final introductory session for Google APIs covers some new and exciting APIs that are available for developers! Each talk will be about 20 minutes with 5 minutes of Q&A time afterwards. <p> </p> 1. Google Checkout makes online shopping faster and more secure for buyers... use it once and stop creating new accounts every time you buy. For sellers, Google Checkout helps increase sales by bringing in more customers and allowing them to buy quickly and easily with a single login. (Peng Ying) <p> </p> 2. Google Storage, BigQuery, and Prediction APIs are all part of our next generation cloud computing initiatives: a) Storage allows you to not only store your data in the cloud but also provides simple RESTful and command-line interfaces to access your data, b) BigQuery lets you analyze "massively large datasets,", and c) the Prediction API lets you access Google's complex machine learning algorithms to predict likely future outcomes based on your historic data. (Chris Schalk) <p> </p> 3. Google TV is a new device we announced at I/O back in May. It combines the traditional content of television along with the data and information available on the Internet to provide a complete "premier entertainment experience for the living room." (Andres Ferrate) <p> </p> All three speakers are members of Google's Developer Relations team.
