Namely, functions have emerged as a great fit for serverless application backends to integrate with third-party services and APIs, or for mobile or IoT backends. You can also use functions for real-time data processing systems, such as processing files as they are uploaded to Cloud Storage, or to handle real-time streams of events from Pub/Sub. Last, but not least, functions can serve intelligent applications like virtual assistants and chat bots, or perform video, image or sentiment analysis.
