Develop robust AI applications with TensorFlow, Cloud AutoML, TPUs, and other GCP services
- Focus on AI model development and deployment in GCP without worrying about infrastructure
- Manage feature processing, data storage, and trained models using Google Cloud Dataflow
- Access key frameworks such as TensorFlow and Cloud AutoML to run your deep learning models
With a wide range of exciting tools and libraries such as Google BigQuery, Google Cloud Dataflow, and Google Cloud Dataproc, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) enables efficient big data processing and the development of smart AI models on the cloud. This GCP book will guide you in using these tools to build your AI-powered applications with ease and managing thousands of AI implementations on the cloud to help save you time.
Starting with a brief overview of Cloud AI and GCP features, you’ll learn how to deal with large volumes of data using auto-scaling features. You’ll then implement Cloud AutoML to demonstrate the use of streaming components for performing data analytics and understand how Dialogflow can be used to create a conversational interface. As you advance, you’ll be able to scale out and speed up AI and predictive applications using TensorFlow. You’ll also leverage GCP to train and optimize deep learning models, run machine learning algorithms, and perform complex GPU computations using TPUs. Finally, you’ll build and deploy AI applications to production with the help of an end-to-end use case.
By the end of this book, you’ll have learned how to design and run experiments and be able to discover innovative solutions without worrying about infrastructure, resources, and computing power.
