Big Data & AI Conference Workshops

All workshops will take place between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday, June 27, 2019.

End-to-end Machine Learning with TensorFlow on Google Cloud Platform

Target Audience

Developers, Data Scientists, and Machine Learning Engineers.

Date: Thursday, June 27, 2019

Time: 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Instructors: Karl Weinmeister (Cloud AI Advocacy Manager, Google) and Fatih Nar (Customer Engineer, Google)

Location: Acacia Room, Addison Conference Centre

Workshop Summary

In this workshop, we walk through the process of building a complete machine learning pipeline covering ingest, exploration, training, evaluation, deployment, and prediction. Along the way, we will discuss how to explore and split large data sets correctly using BigQuery and notebooks.

The machine learning model in TensorFlow will be developed on a small sample locally. The preprocessing operations will be implemented in Cloud Dataflow, so that the same preprocessing can be applied in streaming mode as well. The training of the model will then be distributed and scaled out on Cloud ML Engine. The trained model will be deployed as a micro-service and predictions invoked from a web application.

What You'll Learn

Attendees will solve a data science problem from start to finish, learning how to preprocess data, create a model, and then deploy the model.

  3. Create Tensorflow Wide-and-Deep model
  4. Preprocessing using Cloud Dataflow
  5. Training on Cloud ML Engine
  6. Deploy trained model
  7. Automate
  8. Run client applications

All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our conference are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they'll be wearing branded clothing and/or badges.

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.
