In this liveProject, you’ll get hands-on experience using the powerful Google Colab tool for machine learning and deep learning. Colab notebooks let you execute your data science code in Google’s cloud, getting all the benefits of Google’s incredible hardware. You’ll see how Colab works for yourself by running through simple machine learning tasks such as data preprocessing, making use of Colab’s free GPU and TPU hardware acceleration capabilities, and combining Colab with scikit-learn and PyTorch to train a classifier.
This liveProject is for intermediate Python programmers who know the basics of data science and machine learning. To complete the second milestone of this liveProject, you will work with PyTorch. To begin this liveProject you will need to be familiar with the following:
- Intermediate Python
- Basics of Jupyter Notebook
- Basics of Google Colab
- Basics of PyTorch
- Basics of scikit-learn
- Basics of Git and GitHub
- Basics of Google Drive
- Naive Bayes
- Neural Networks
