This book shows how to apply sophisticated statistical and machine learning methods to real-world problems when building on top of the Google Cloud Platform. Author Valliappa Lakshmanan shows developers entering the data science field how to implement an end-to-end data pipeline, using statistical and machine learning methods and tools on the Google Cloud Platform. Throughout the book you’ll work through a sample business decision by employing a variety of data science approaches.


Follow along by implementing these statistical and machine learning solutions in your own project on GCP, and discover how this platform provides a transformative and more collaborative way of doing data science.
