Managing Machine Learning Projects with Google Cloud

Google Cloud and Google via Coursera


Business professionals in non-technical roles have a unique opportunity to lead or influence machine learning projects. If you have questions about machine learning and want to understand how to use it, without the technical jargon, this course is for you. Learn how to translate business problems into machine learning use cases and vet them for feasibility and impact. Find out how you can discover unexpected use cases, recognize the phases of an ML project and considerations within each, and gain confidence to propose a custom ML use case to your team or leadership or translate the requirements to a technical team.


  • Module 1: Introduction
    • Welcome to the course! In this module, you'll meet the instructor and learn about the course content and how to get started.
  • Module 2: Identifying business value for using ML
    • This module begins by defining machine learning at a high level and then helps you gain a thorough understanding of its value for business by reviewing several real-world examples. It then introduces machine learning projects and provides practice using a tool to assess the feasibility of several ML problems.
  • Module 3: Defining ML as a practice
    • There are several types of machine learning problems. In this module, you'll learn to differentiate between the most common ones; develop the key vocabulary to support yourself when working with ML experts; practice categorizing various examples of ML problems; and identify the short- and long-term benefits when solving those ML problems.
  • Module 4: Building and evaluating ML models
    • After you have assessed the feasibility of your supervised ML problem, you're ready to move to the next phase of an ML project. This module explores the various considerations and requirements for building a complete dataset in preparation for training, evaluating, and deploying an ML model. It also includes two demos—Vision API and AutoML Vision—as relevant tools that you can easily access yourself or in partnership with a data scientist. You'll also have the opportunity to try out AutoML Vision with the first hands-on lab.
  • Module 5: Using ML responsibly and ethically
    • Data in the world is inherently biased, and that bias can be amplified through ML solutions. In this module, you'll learn about some of the most common biases and how they can disproportionately affect or harm an individual or groups of individuals. You'll also be given guidelines for uncovering possible biases at each phase of an ML project and strategies for achieving ML fairness as much as possible.
  • Module 6: Discovering ML use cases in day-to-day business
    • This module explores 5 general themes for discovering ML use cases within day-to-day business, followed by concrete customer examples. You'll learn about creative applications of ML, such as improving the resolution of images or generating music.
  • Module 7: Managing ML projects successfully
    • When you thoroughly understand the fundamentals of machine learning and considerations within in each phase of the project, you're ready to learn about the best practices for managing an ML project. This module describes 5 key considerations for successfully managing an ML project end-to-end: identifying the business value, developing a data strategy, establishing data governance, building successful ML teams, and enabling a culture of innovation. You'll also have an opportunity to gain further exposure to one of Google Cloud's tools by completing a final hands-on lab: Evaluate an ML Model with BigQuery ML.
  • Module 8: Summary
    • This module provides a summary of the key points covered in each of the modules in the course.

    Although the course is all about machine learning, since it's a non-technical course, I strongly recommend for those who want to take a look at how ML engineers are doing and see if they fit in this career. GG designs the course precisely and one unique thing is their Qwiklabs exercises to give students real life experiment of ML. Quizzes are short and easy, which are good points.

    Rajnish Pandey is taking this course right now, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    This is very good website to learn .I recommend to all bigners to learn and develop our skill through it's website
    So this is amazing to learn and have many course to learn absolutely free for some course also.
