It’s no secret that machine learning is one of the fastest growing fields in tech, and the Google Cloud Platform has been instrumental in furthering its development. With a host of APIs, GCP has a tool for just about any machine learning job. In this introductory level, you will get hands-on practice with machine learning as it applies to language processing and Image processing. All of that through 3 quests on Qwiklabs platform:
To be able to take this course you will need to know at least one programming language
1- Intro to ML: Image Processing
Using large scale computing power to recognize patterns and “read” images is one of the foundational technologies in AI, from self-driving cars to facial recognition. The Google Cloud Platform provides world class speed and accuracy via systems that can utilized by simply calling APIs. With these and a host of other APIs, GCP has a tool for just about any machine learning job. In this introductory quest, you will get hands-on practice with machine learning as it applies to image processing by taking labs that will enable you to label images, detect faces and landmarks, as well as extract, analyze, and translate text from within images.
2- Intro to ML: Language Processing
It’s no secret that machine learning is one of the fastest growing fields in tech, and the Google Cloud Platform has been instrumental in furthering its development. With a host of APIs, GCP has a tool for just about any machine learning job. In this introductory quest, you will get hands-on practice with machine learning as it applies to language processing by taking labs that will enable you to extract entities from text, and perform sentiment and syntactic analysis as well as use the Speech to Text API for transcription.
3- Exploring APIs
Google Cloud Application Programming Interfaces are the mechanism to interact with Google Cloud Services programmatically. This quest will give you hands-on practice with a variety of GCP APIs, which you will learn through working with Google’s APIs Explorer, a tool that allows you to browse APIs and run their methods interactively. By learning how to transfer data between Cloud Storage buckets, deploy Compute Engine instances, configure Dataproc clusters and much more, Exploring APIs will show you how powerful APIs are and why they are used almost exclusively by proficient GCP users.
