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.

Cloud Translation API

The Cloud Translation API provides a simple, programmatic interface for translating an arbitrary string into any supported language, using state-of-the-art neural machine translation. The Translation API is highly responsive, so websites and applications can integrate with the Translation API for fast, dynamic translation of source text from the source language to a target language (for example, French to English). Language detection is also available for cases in which the source language is unknown.

Enabling the API

For us to be able to use Google cloud translation services, we need to enable, which is done as follows:

  1. In order to enable the Google Cloud Translation API, search for the API in the console...
