Course Description

Through a combination of instructor-led presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, students learn machine learning and Tensorflow concepts and develop hands-on skills in developing, evaluating, and productionizing machine learning models.

This 1 day instructor led course builds upon CPB100 and CPB101 (which are prerequisites).


This class is intended for programmers and data scientists responsible for developing predictive analytics using machine learning. The typical audience member has experience analyzing and visualizing big data, implementing cloud-based big data solutions, and transforming/processing datasets.


Knowledge of Google Cloud Platform Big Data & Machine Learning Fundamentals to the level of CPB100

Knowledge of BigQuery and Dataflow to the level of CPB101

Knowledge of Python and familiarity with the numpy package

Knowledge of undergraduate-level statistics to the level of Udacity ST101
