Accelerate Research with Google Cloud Workshop at Cambridge University (Face to Face - Hybrid event)

Wed 22 Mar 2023


The University of Cambridge welcomes Google for a talk about Accelerating Research with Google Cloud.

"At Google, we are passionate about supporting researchers driving scientific breakthroughs with Google Cloud and the great impact it could have on social sciences, life sciences and physical sciences.

In this session we would like to share our public dataset efforts in supporting the research community and how researchers from different fields of study can access & collaborate on large datasets using easy to use tools.

This workshop will introduce researchers to datasets and interactive big data tools that will allow researchers to ask questions, interact and develop solutions for their papers.

The Talk will also touch upon some AI/ML tools around training AI models that could benefit your research pursuit and how Cambridge University could make use of Google research credits program to explore these tools."

Please Note: This will be a hybrid event with places for people to attend in person or the option of watching online. See joining instructions in the booking confirmation email for online Teams link.

This is the In Person Face to Face version of the Live Online same course.
