About this event

It’s no secret that machine learning is one of the fastest-growing fields in tech, and the Google Cloud Platform has been instrumental in furthering its development. With a host of APIs, GCP has a tool for just about any machine learning job. In this introductory quest, you will get hands-on practice with machine learning as it applies to language processing by taking labs that will enable you to extract entities from text, and perform sentiment and syntactic analysis as well as use the Speech to Text API for transcription.

This Quest has 5 steps.

Complete all of the labs in the session’s quest, and you’ll earn an additional free month of access to Qwiklabs as well as a badge for your online profile.

Together we will do one workshop. You will do the rest by yourself. But if you need help you can sign up/subscribe at this YouTube channel where I will upload videos with the steps.

1. 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.

1 hour, Introductory, 1 Credit

2. Google Cloud Speech API: Qwik Start

The Google Cloud Speech API integrates speech recognition into dev apps; you can now send audio/receive a text transcription.
