The course focuses on applications instead of theoretical part, which makes the course useful. Topics that are covered by the course are extensive. However, some programing assignments might be too easy for the topics.

Easy beginner course in Machine Learning. Quite helpful to get a fine introduction to the field.

Thanks Professor!

It was a fantastic learning experience. I hope to keep learning from you and Coursera in future.

Solid course, could do with having tidier readings/lecture notes but the videos are fantastic. Programming assignments worthwhile if a little basic.
