Machine Learning on Google Cloud Training

This course introduces the artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) offerings on Google Cloud that support the data-to-AI lifecycle through AI foundations, AI development, and AI solutions. It explores the technologies, products, and tools available to build an ML model, an ML pipeline, and a generative AI project. You learn how to build AutoML models without writing a single line of code; build BigQuery ML models using SQL, and build Vertex AI custom training jobs by using Keras and TensorFlow. You also explore data preprocessing techniques and feature engineering.
