Pricing

Video classification

AutoML Video Intelligence Classification enables you to train custom video machine learning models to classify videos into a custom set of categories. Prices for AutoML Video are based on resource usage, for both training and classification prediction.

Prices are listed in US Dollars (USD). If you pay in a currency other than USD, the prices listed in your currency on Cloud Platform SKUs apply.

Free trial: You can try AutoML Video Intelligence Classification for free by using 40 free node hours for training and 5 free node hours for prediction, per billing account. Your free node hours are issued right before you create your first model, and you have up to one year to use them.

Video classification training costs

The cost for training a model is $2.94 per node hour. For each unit of time, training a model requires the use of 9 nodes in parallel, where each node is equivalent to a n1-standard-4 machine with an attached NVIDIA® Tesla® V100 GPU.

You pay only for the computer hours used; if training fails for any reason other than a user-initiated cancellation, you are not billed for the time. You will be charged for training time if you cancel the operation.

Video classification prediction costs

The cost for prediction is $0.42 per node hour. For each unit of time, prediction requires the use of 1 node equivalent to a n1-standard-8 machine.

Prediction on 1 hour of video can cost less than 1 node hour, depending on the model and the video being annotated.

Video object tracking

AutoML Video Intelligence Object Tracking enables you to train custom video machine learning models to localize and track objects in your videos. Prices for AutoML Video are based on resource usage, for both training and prediction.

Prices are listed in US Dollars (USD). If you pay in a currency other than USD, the prices listed in your currency on Cloud Platform SKUs apply.

Free trial: You can try AutoML Video Intelligence Object Tracking for free by using 40 free node hours for training and 5 free node hours for prediction, per billing account. Your free node hours are issued right before you create your first model, and you have up to one year to use them.
