Manchester Digital Members Only

Marc Cohen is a developer advocate for Google and will be delivering a 'Machine learning in the Google cloud' workshop for Manchester Digital members. In this workshop, you will learn about the Cloud, Machine Learning, and ML in the Cloud. The focus will be on Google services, with a hands-on lab experience where you'll have a chance to build your own neural network.

Over the course of these two hours, we will be covering the following

Common foundations

  • What is ML, Deep Learning, and how does it work?
  • What is a tensor? What is TF? What is Keras?
  • Quickly walk through a basic intro notebook to get the hang of Jupyter and Colab

Building a deep neural network together

  • Work through a colab notebook, using Keras to build a deep NN to recognize MNIST handwritten digits.
    • Training is done on TPUs.
    • Deploying to cloud is extra credit
    • Download model to laptop and test locally using tensorflow.js

Overflow, Q&A and wrap-up
