Powerful data exploration
Cloud Datalab is a powerful interactive tool created to explore, analyze, transform, and visualize data and build machine learning models on Google Cloud Platform. It runs on Compute Engine and connects to multiple cloud services easily so you can focus on your data science tasks.
Integrated and open source
Whether you're analyzing megabytes or terabytes, Cloud Datalab has you covered. Query terabytes of data in BigQuery, run local analysis on sampled data, and run training jobs on terabytes of data in AI Platform seamlessly.
Data management and visualization
Use Cloud Datalab to gain insight from your data. Interactively explore, transform, analyze, and visualize your data using BigQuery, Cloud Storage, and Python.
Machine learning with life cycle support
Go from data to deployed machine learning (ML) models ready for prediction. Explore data, build, evaluate, and optimize machine learning models using TensorFlow or AI Platform.
Cloud Datalab simplifies data processing with BigQuery, AI Platform, Cloud Storage, and Cloud Monitoring. Authentication, cloud computation, and source control are taken care of out-of-the-box.
Cloud Datalab combines code, documentation, results, and visualizations together in an intuitive notebook format.
Only pay for the cloud resources you use: Compute Engine VMs, BigQuery, and any additional resources you decide to use, such as Cloud Storage.
Interactive data visualization
Use Google Charting or matplotlib for easy visualizations.
Supports TensorFlow-based deep ML models in addition to scikit-learn. Scales training and prediction via specialized libraries for AI Platform.
Datalab is based on Jupyter (formerly IPython) so you can use a large number of existing packages for statistics, machine learning, etc. Learn from published notebooks and swap tips with a vibrant IPython community.
Developers wishing to extend Datalab can fork and/or submit pull requests on the GitHub hosted project.
Datalab is available at no extra charge. You may incur compute, storage, and other cloud services costs based on usage.
