Speaking of the Google Prediction API: the company will start charging for the API, like good fortune teller should. According to its pricing page, the service will be free to users for six months or until the they reache a cap of 20,000 predictions - whichever comes first. Free accounts will also be limited to 100 queries and 5MB trained per day.
After the free period Google will charge:
- $10 monthly fee per project. A project is defined by a unique key on the Google APIs console.
- The monthly fee covers 10,000 additional predictions per month. Beyond that, predictions cost $0.50 per 1,000 predictions. If you intend to make more than 40,000 predictions per day, please contact us. Google Prediction has an absolute limit of 60,000 predictions per day.
- $0.002 per MB trained (maximum size of each dataset: 100MB)
