Hands-On Machine Learning on Google Cloud Platform

By: Giuseppe Ciaburro, V Kishore Ayyadevara, Alexis Perrier

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.

Google Cloud SQL

Google Cloud SQL is a database service of the Google Cloud Platform that allows the creation, management, and administration of relational databases in the cloud for their applications. The service guarantees excellent performance and scalability thanks to the Google infrastructure on which the databases will be hosted. Like every service on the platform, the simplicity of use is fundamental: there is no need to install any software, make updates manually, or take care of backups and replications of their databases. The Google platform will take care of all of it and ensure an availability of 99.95%. The data is encrypted before being saved in the databases and in the backups, to guarantee the security of the infrastructure.

You can also set up a network firewall for each database instance to directly regulate access to the instances. The service can be used with...
