Batch prediction components

The BatchPredictionJob resource lets you run an asynchronous prediction request. Request batch predictions directly from the model resource. You don't need to deploy the model to an endpoint. For data types that support both batch and online predictions you can use batch predictions. This is useful when you don't require an immediate response and want to process accumulated data by using a single request.

To make a batch prediction, specify an input source and an output location for Vertex AI to store predictions results. The inputs and outputs depend on the model type that you're working with. For example, batch predictions for the AutoML image model type require an input JSON Lines file and the name of a Cloud Storage bucket to store the output. For more information about batch prediction, see Get batch predictions.

You can use the ModelBatchPredictOp component to access this resource through Vertex AI Pipelines.
