Presentation: Live coding a machine learning model from scratch
Speaker: Google Cloud AI/Developer Advocate

Abstract: Do you want to build a machine learning model but aren’t sure where to start? Sara Robinson starts with an empty notebook and live codes a simple neural network in TensorFlow. She demonstrates how to train and serve the model on Google Cloud Platform and uses the deployed model to generate predictions from a web app.

Who is this presentation for?
Developers with minimal machine learning (ML) experience and ML engineers.

Level: Intermediate

Prerequisite knowledge:
- A basic knowledge of Python
- General knowledge of basic machine learning concepts: training, serving, etc. (but not necessarily how to build a model on your own)

What you'll learn:
- Learn how to build a simple neural network
- Understand the end-to-end ML workflow and how to use your trained model for generating predictions
