Google Cloud Platform to predict football matches

Using the Google Cloud Platform, Open Source tools and a data set full of historical, fine-grained data about soccer, we were able to correctly predict 14 out of 16 matches in the knockout phase of the World Cup. In this workshop we'll share the code, instructions, and data so that anyone can now repeat and extend our process.

We'll go into depth about how we built our models, the tools we used, the algorithms, and what we learned along the way. You'll get access to the IPython notebook that ran the machine learning process and the one-touch Docker instance that sets up everything you need to start making predictions. We'll show you how you can run the same code that we did to make your own predictions for your favorite teams.

Requirements for attendees:
• Laptop with cloud access and a Google Cloud account if you want to follow up.
• IPython
