BigQuery is capable of some truly impressive feats, be it scanning billions of rows based on a regular expression, joining large tables, or completing complex ETL tasks with just a SQL query. One advantage of BigQuery (and SQL in general), is it’s declarative nature. Your SQL indicates your requirements, but the system is responsible for figuring out how to satisfy that request. However, this approach also has its flaws - namely the problem of understanding intent.

When it comes to anomaly detection, one of the key challenges that many organizations face is that it can be difficult to know how to define what an anomaly is. How do you define and anticipate unusual network intrusions, manufacturing defects, or insurance fraud? If you have labeled data with known anomalies, then you can choose from a variety of supervised machine learning model types that are already supported in BigQuery ML.
