Baseline: Data, ML, AI

Google via Qwiklabs

Overview

Big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence are today's hot computing topics, but these fields are quite specialized and introductory material is hard to come by. Fortunately, Google Cloud provides user-friendly services in these areas and Qwiklabs has you covered with this introductory-level quest, so you can take your first steps with tools like Big Query, Cloud Speech API, and AI Platform. Want extra help? 1-minute videos walk you through key concepts for each lab.

Syllabus

  • AI Platform: Qwik Start
    • In this lab you train and deploy a TensorFlow model to AI Platform for serving (prediction). Watch these short videos Harness the Power of Machine Learning with AI Platform and AI Platform: Qwik Start - Qwiklabs Preview.
  • Vertex AI: Qwik Start
    • In this lab, you will use BigQuery for data processing and exploratory data analysis, and the Vertex AI platform to train and deploy a custom TensorFlow Regressor model to predict customer lifetime value (CLV). The goal of the lab is to introduce to Vertex AI through a high value real world use case - predictive CLV. Starting with a local BigQuery and TensorFlow workflow, you will progress toward training and deploying your model in the cloud with Vertex AI.
  • Dataprep: Qwik Start
    • Google Cloud Dataprep is an intelligent data service for visually exploring, cleaning, and preparing data for analysis. Watch the short video Dataprep: Qwik Start - Qwiklabs Preview.
  • Dataflow: Qwik Start - Templates
    • This page shows you how to create a streaming pipeline using a Google-Provided Cloud Dataflow template.
  • Dataflow: Qwik Start - Python
    • In this lab you will set up your Python development environment, get the Cloud Dataflow SDK for Python, and run an example pipeline using the Google Cloud Platform Console.
  • Dataproc: Qwik Start - Console
    • This lab shows you how to create a Google Cloud Dataproc cluster, run a simple Apache Spark job in the cluster, then modify the number of workers in the cluster, all from the gcloud Command Line. Watch these short videos, Dataproc: Qwik Start - Qwiklabs Preview and Run Spark and Hadoop Faster with Cloud Dataproc.
  • Dataproc: Qwik Start - Command Line
