Machine Learning on Google Cloud (MLGC)

 

Course Overview

What is machine learning, and what kinds of problems can it solve? Why are neural networks so popular right now? How can you improve data quality and perform exploratory data analysis? How can you set up a supervised learning problem and find a good, generalizable solution using gradient descent? In this course, you'll learn how to write distributed machine learning models that scale in Tensorflow 2.x, perform feature engineering in BQML and Keras, evaluate loss curves and perform hyperparameter tuning, and train models at scale with Cloud AI Platform.
