This course explores what ML is and what problems it can solve. The course also discusses best practices for implementing machine learning. You’re introduced to Vertex AI, a unified platform to quickly build, train, and deploy AutoML machine learning models. The course discusses the five phases of converting a candidate use case to be driven by machine learning, and why it’s important to not skip them. The course ends with recognizing the biases that ML can amplify and how to recognize them.


  • Introduction to Course and Series
    • This module introduces the course series and the Google experts who will be teaching it.
  • What It Means to be AI-First
    • In this module, you explore building a data strategy around machine learning.
  • How Google Does ML

  • As the course name tells us, this 1-week course introduces Machine Learning products from Google, including how Google frames an ML problem, how Google pre-trained models in the cloud, and so on.

    But if you want to learn ML algorithms more deeply, this course is not suitable for you. And having a deep understanding of ML algorithms is important in the real working environment.
  • Very nice introduction to machine learning and the notebooks in the Google Cloud. I found the videos very interesting and the tests very clever. This was an extraordinary training.
  • Aseem Bansal
    I already knew bit about google cloud so the parts related to that were not new for me. But the parts where they were talking ML strategy was totally new for me. Some of it like replacing rules by ML totally blew my mind. First time hearing that stuff.
