This is a guided project on fine-tuning a Bidirectional Transformers for Language Understanding (BERT) model for text classification with TensorFlow. In this 2.5 hour long project, you will learn to preprocess and tokenize data for BERT classification, build TensorFlow input pipelines for text data with the tf.data API, and train and evaluate a fine-tuned BERT model for text classification with TensorFlow 2 and TensorFlow Hub. Prerequisites: In order to successfully complete this project, you should be competent in the Python programming language, be familiar with deep learning for Natural Language Processing (NLP), and have trained models with TensorFlow or and its Keras API. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
It is assumed that are competent in Python programming and have prior experience with building deep learning NLP models with TensorFlow or Keras
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
Introduction to the Project
Setup your TensorFlow and Colab Runtime
Download and Import the Quora Insincere Questions Dataset
Create tf.data.Datasets for Training and Evaluation
Download a Pre-trained BERT Model from TensorFlow Hub
Tokenize and Preprocess Text for BERT
Wrap a Python Function into a TensorFlow op for Eager Execution
Create a TensorFlow Input Pipeline with tf.data
Add a Classification Head to the BERT hub.KerasLayer
Fine-Tune and Evaluate BERT for Text Classification
Your workspace is a cloud desktop right in your browser, no download required

The project is very clear and easy to follow. Would suggest providing some gmail account so that we don't have to log into the colab using our own google credentials.
The project was well explained and provided good understanding of bert for text classification. Also the quiz were good.
It would be helpful if the course was also offered outside of Google colab environment (standalone).
Helped me cement the basic understanding on how to use BERT for my use case.
Are Guided Projects available on desktop and mobile?
Because your workspace contains a cloud desktop that is sized for a laptop or desktop computer, Guided Projects are not available on your mobile device.
Who are the instructors for Guided Projects?
Guided Project instructors are subject matter experts who have experience in the skill, tool or domain of their project and are passionate about sharing their knowledge to impact millions of learners around the world.
Can I download the work from my Guided Project after I complete it?
You can download and keep any of your created files from the Guided Project. To do so, you can use the “File Browser” feature while you are accessing your cloud desktop.
How much experience do I need to do this Guided Project?
At the top of the page, you can press on the experience level for this Guided Project to view any knowledge prerequisites. For every level of Guided Project, your instructor will walk you through step-by-step.
Can I complete this Guided Project right through my web browser, instead of installing special software?
Yes, everything you need to complete your Guided Project will be available in a cloud desktop that is available in your browser.
What is the learning experience like with Guided Projects?
You'll learn by doing through completing tasks in a split-screen environment directly in your browser. On the left side of the screen, you'll complete the task in your workspace. On the right side of the screen, you'll watch an instructor walk you through the project, step-by-step.
