Machine Learning for Mobile Apps using Google’s ML Kit Training Course


ML Kit is a mobile SDK provided by Google for integrating machine learning technologies into Android and iOS apps. It features usable APIs for barcode scanning, face detection, image labeling, object detection and tracking, text recognition, translations, and other vision and language processing functions.

This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at developers who wish to use Google’s ML Kit to build machine learning models that are optimized for processing on mobile devices.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Set up the necessary development environment to start developing machine learning features for mobile apps.
  • Integrate new machine learning technologies into Android and iOS apps using the ML Kit APIs.
  • Enhance and optimize existing apps using the ML Kit SDK for on-device processing and deployment.

Format of the Course

  • Interactive lecture and discussion.
  • Lots of exercises and practice.
  • Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.
