Techtalk on Machine Learning

GDG and GCPUG are co-organizing a Tech-talk on Machine Learning in March.

Speaker: Sara Robinson, Developer Advocate, Google Cloud

Date: 19-Mar-2018

Venue: Causeway Bay, TBC.

Topic: Zero to ML on Google Cloud Platform

Everyone’s talking about machine learning, but we hear much less about how to put it into practice. And let’s face it, that can be daunting! Even just 10 years ago you needed access to extensive academic and computing resources to make use of machine learning. Fast forward to today and we’ve seen revolutionary changes in the hardware and software that are making ML accessible for any developer or data scientist. Whether you’re completely new to ML or you’ve already trained and deployed your own model from scratch, Google Cloud Platform has a variety of tools to help you start using ML right now. I’ll start with the basics: how to use a pre-trained ML model with one REST API call. Then you’ll learn how to use your own dataset to customize a pre-trained model with transfer learning. We’ll end by learning how to build your own model from scratch with TensorFlow, and how train and serve it in the cloud with GCP.
