Machine Learning on Google Cloud (MLGC)

 

Course Overview

This course teaches you how to build Vertex AI AutoML models without writing a single line of code, build BigQuery ML models knowing basic SQL, create Vertex AI custom training jobs you deploy using containers ‒ with little knowledge of Docker, use Feature Store for data management and governance, feature engineering for model improvement, determine the appropriate data preprocessing options for your use case, write distributed ML models that scale in TensorFlow, and leverage best practices to implement machine learning on Google Cloud. Learn all this and more!
