Vertex AI Workbench Launched
Building on the Vertex AI unified building environment Google made generally available in May, the company is now launching Vertex AI Workbench, a managed notebook service that goes across all of Google’s data services, including BigQuery and Dataplex. The tool is now in preview.
“We see an incredible increase in productivity, more than a five times increase in development productivity,” Kazmaier said, “meaning reduced time of development because data scientists and data engineers do not need to context switch anymore. They have the same experience as they grow across the full ML development lifecycle. And as it’s a managed service, it is super easy to deploy and immediately available without configuring it in any infrastructure front.”
The Vertex AI tool is designed to help developers more easily build, deploy and scale machine learning (ML) models faster with pre-trained and custom tooling within a unified artificial intelligence (AI) platform.
