Google Cloud Revolutionizes Predictive Analytics: Unveils New Machine Learning Accelerator for Looker

As Seen On

The advent of Machine Learning (ML) has revolutionized how businesses process and interpret vast volumes of data to garner invaluable insights. This field, although lucrative, demands a high level of expertise and often poses complex challenges. To mitigate these issues and democratize access to ML, businesses have been on the hunt for innovative solutions. This quest might have found its end with Google Cloud launching an unprecedented tool: the Machine Learning Accelerator for Looker.

Google Cloud’s new tool seeks to empower data analysts to develop and test their own predictive models, potentially reinventing the landscape of predictive analytics within business intelligence. It harnesses the power of governed data in Looker, illuminating critical business insights across multiple verticals and fostering an environment where data-driven insights can be accessed by an entire team.

The Machine Learning Accelerator for Looker primarily simplifies and enhances users’ interactions with ML tools. Apart from facilitating data analysts’ utilization of their datasets for model training, this state-of-the-art application presides over every stage of model creation, ranging from training through evaluation to inference generation. Notably, its plug-and-play nature provides a user-friendly experience, positing the benefits of ML ad rem of dense coding tasks. As a further attraction, users can avail of this ML Accelerator free from the Looker Marketplace.

The top-notch functionality of the ML Accelerator for Looker is owed to its seamless integration with Google Cloud. This integration draws together users of Looker, BigQuery, and Vertex AI, setting the stage for collaborative creation and implementation of ML models. As an illustration, the BigQuery ML can tap into the ML Accelerator to transform an analyst’s predictive model into actionable business intelligence in real time – all in a user-friendly GUI without touching a line of code.

The ML Accelerator also brags about a new addition to its array of models – the Single Time Series Forecasting using the ARIMA Plus model in BigQuery ML. This feature proves instrumental in predicting business metrics like product sales or total revenue, thereby driving more apt strategic decisions. Additionally, the ML Accelerator extends support to Classification and Regression model types, which can prove potent in foreseeing customer churn or identifying the return on advertising spend (ROAS).

Google Cloud’s Machine Learning Accelerator for Looker represents a significant stride forward in predictive analytics and business intelligence. By simplifying and democratizing access to machine learning tools, it promises to unlock a new world of insights and opportunities for businesses. This development could both stimulate the adoption of predictive analytics and empower an increasing number of analysts to partake in the machine learning revolution. In the business world thirsty for transformative solutions, the ML Accelerator appears to have hit the sweet spot, poised to make waves in data analysis and predictive modeling.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
