Overview of this book

Google Cloud Machine Learning Engine combines the services of Google Cloud Platform with the power and flexibility of TensorFlow. With this book, you will not only learn to build and train different complexities of machine learning models at scale but also host them in the cloud to make predictions. This book is focused on making the most of the Google Machine Learning Platform for large datasets and complex problems. You will learn from scratch how to create powerful machine learning based applications for a wide variety of problems by leveraging different data services from the Google Cloud Platform. Applications include NLP, Speech to text, Reinforcement learning, Time series, recommender systems, image classification, video content inference and many other. We will implement a wide variety of deep learning use cases and also make extensive use of data related services comprising the Google Cloud Platform ecosystem such as Firebase, Storage APIs, Datalab and so forth. This will enable you to integrate Machine Learning and data processing features into your web and mobile applications. By the end of this book, you will know the main difficulties that you may encounter and get appropriate strategies to overcome these difficulties and build efficient systems.

Life cycle management

With Google Cloud Storage, the life cycle management of objects becomes simple and immediate. The life cycle of an object is the time between the creation of an object and its destruction. The rules for the duration of the object vary significantly between the programming platforms. In the case of archived objects we refer to the time in which the object remains stored in the space assigned to it.

The life cycle of a bucket can be managed through its configuration. The configuration contains a set of rules that apply to all objects in the bucket. The action specified on the object is performed when the object meets the criteria of one of the rules.

To enable life cycle for a bucket using the Google Cloud Console:

  1. Go to Open the Google Cloud Platform Console and click on the Cloud Storage browser; the following window is opened:
  1. In this window, examine...
