Description

This course demonstrates how to build and train machine learning models for linear and logistic regression using SQL commands on BigQuery, the Google Cloud Platform’s serverless data warehouse. In this course, Building Machine Learning Models in SQL Using BigQuery ML, you'll learn how to build and train machine learning models and how to employ those models for prediction - all with just simple SQL commands on data stored in BigQuery. First, you'll understand the different choices available on the GCP if you would like to build and train your models and see how you can make the right choice between these services for your specific use case. Then, you'll work with some real-world datasets stored in BigQuery to build linear regression and binary classification models. Because BigQuery allows you to specify training parameters to build and train your model in SQL, machine learning is made accessible to even those who are not familiar with high-level programming languages. Last, you'll study how to analyze the models that we built using evaluation and feature inspection functions in BigQuery, and run BigQuery commands on Cloud Datalab using a Jupyter notebook that is hosted on the GCP and closely integrated with all of GCPs services. By the end of this course, you'll have a good understanding of how you can use BigQuery ML to extract insights from your data by applying linear and logistic regression models.

Course Overview
Hi. My name is Janani Ravi, and welcome to this course on Building Machine Learning Models in SQL Using BigQuery ML. A little about myself. I have a Master's Degree in electrical engineering from Stanford and have worked with companies such as Microsoft, Google, and Flipkart. At Google, I was one of the first engineers working on real-time collaborative editing in Google Docs, and I hold four patents for its underlying technologies. I currently work on my own startup, Loonycorn, a studio for high-quality video content. In this course, you will learn how to build and train machine learning models and how to employ those models for prediction all with just simple SQL commands on data stored in BigQuery. We start off the course with an introduction to machine learning using BigQuery. We'll understand the different choices available on the GCP if you would like to build and train your models and see how you can make the right choice between these services for your specific use case. We'll then work with some real-world datasets stored in BigQuery to build linear regression and binary classification models. BigQuery allows you to specify training parameters to build and train your models in SQL. This has the effect of making machine learning accessible to even those who are not familiar with high-level programming languages. We'll then study how to analyze the models that we build using evaluation and feature inspection functions in BigQuery. We'll also run BigQuery commands on Cloud Datalab, a Jupyter Notebook that is hosted on the GCP and closely integrated with all of GCP services. At the end of this course, you will have a good understanding of how you can use BigQuery ML to extract insights from your data by applying linear and logistic regression models.
