This lab is part of a lab series, where you go from exploring a taxicab dataset to training and deploying a high-accuracy distributed model with Cloud ML Engine.

What you need

To complete this lab, you need:

What you learn

In this lab, you will improve the ML model using feature engineering. In the process, you will learn how to:

Step 1

Start Datalab using the instructions in Launch Datalab and come back to this lab.

Step 1

In Cloud Datalab, click on the Home icon, and then navigate to training-data-analyst/courses/machine_learning/feateng and open feateng.ipynb.

Step 2

In Datalab, click on Clear | All Cells. Now read the narrative and execute each cell in turn.

Your instructor will demo notebooks that contain hyper-parameter tuning and training on 500 million rows of data. The changes to the model are minor -- essentially just command-line parameters, but the impact on model accuracy is huge:
