The course is very good and has taught me the all the important concepts required to build a sequence model. The assignments are also very neatly and precisely designed for the real world application.
Very good. I have no complaints. I though instruction was very clear. Assignments were very helpful and challenging enough that I learned something, but not so challenging that I got stuck too often.

Very interesting courses. I take this as a basis for future applications. I only regret that the exercises are too guided. I can't pretend to be able to accomplish a project in machine learning :-(
I would recommend also to note all the references to the papers, they are helpful.

Great content, assignments are fun and reasonably instructive (although they contain the occasional error and the video editing for the lecture content seems a bit rushed at times). I would recommend this course as an introduction to recurrent neural networks and related ideas.
por Ernest W•
Course is about recurrent neural networks, natural language processing and basics of speech recognition. Valuable content and great delivery by the author expect the final week where it's difficult to understand the transformers network and the related programming assignment.
por Justin P•
Very informative and well taught course on sequence models. The amount of content and pacing was just right as not to be overwhelmingly complicated. There are a few bugs here and there in the programming exercise which can lead to a lot of headaches but overall a good course!
por Sergei S•
Great course, with interesting programming assignments, but still, I couldn't catch intuition about GRU and LSTM nature (I understood its pupuse and equations but couldn't get why exactly THAT combination of equations is necessary to allow RNN learn long term dependencies).
por Mikhail M•
Week 3: quite a complected network was used for trigger word detection; however, it is not clear why exactly this architecture was used; specific order of dropout, batchnorm and GRU seems to be a pure magic; at least, a few words why this combination is picked are needed.
por Elena J•
very good hands-on course. Yet I wished in the programming assignments, it was stated clearer, whether the implemented code is for understanding purposes only (and hence being the reason to be implemented) or is still mandatory even when working within a library (keras).
por Stephen S•
Course content is excellent, I would have given 5 stars, if the Programming assignments wouldn't have bugs. Fortunately people in forum help out with solving issues with assignments. I believe it's due to the short time frame the course is online and bugs get corrected.

While this was the most relevant course for me, I missed how it was focused on "helper functions" instead of core RNN concepts. While I feel like I understand concepts like the Bleu score, I would definitely need to spend more time to fully grasp the RNN architecture.

Good introduction into NLP and Sequence models in general. Too many things are done for you in order to fit this course into 4 weeks. I felt like I could not say that I built a system doing something. It was pre-built, while I just filled in some portions of code.
por Jeff M•
Very nicely put together, takes a difficult topic and gives you just enough to get your head around it. Only thing keeping it from 5 stars is that a few times it was more difficult to figure out what the auto grader wanted than what was needed to complete the topic
Would have been nice to get more extensive training in Keras en Tensorflow because programming excercies were somewhat too pre-compiled at times or other times difficult to code because of scarse knowledge of these packets. Otherwise great lecture material as usual
por Vidar I•
This was a great course and teaches you everything you need to know about RNN to get started doing your own research. With background in economics and finance it would have been nice to have one small assignment with time series data. Beside that, awesome course :)
por Oumayma G•
Thank you for this course. The content is very throughout and yet explained simply. I had a hard time with understanding the attention model, the explanation in the course is not enough, but after all, it is a complicated architecture. The labs help. Thank you.

The grader has some bug.Even with correct output and with no bug in the code, it gives incorrect grading. Firstly the criteria to pass is so stiff(80% means to pass for every function).Secondly the bug in grading function grades incorrect for correct codes.
por Sherif M•
Andrew Ng does a great job in introducing Sequence models in this course. However, I have the feeling the theory behind all the concepts falls short. There are just too many different subtopics being covered instead of focusing on the main concepts of RNNs.
por Harish K L•
Compared to the previous 4 courses in this specialization, I felt this course a bit less on details. It may be just me not having the required level of understanding. It just felt like I could've used a little more details. Andrew is awesome as always.
por Daniel K•
The programming assignments were pretty hard this time. I think, Andrew should spend more time to explain the concepts in the video lectures. Took me a while to get this stuff since it is a little bit more abstract than the previous specializations..
por Endre S•
This last course of the series while still being excellent, it had a few minor issues in the assignments and was quite hard compared to the previous four. Nevertheless, I still learned a lot from it and I am really grateful for it being available.
por Roberto A•
Very interesting and well taught course. The only disappointment is that it focuses almost completely on NLP. I would have much preferred working on other topics too, like for example time series with LSTM, which instead didn't even get mentioned.
You should try to leave access to the previous code I wrote in the previous weeks or help out a little in week2 exercise I really struggled to get some of the code done because I didn't have access to my previous notebooks because you locked them
por Harshad D K•
This course helps you build the basics for natural language processing using deep learning methods.
The assignments at the end of every week test your understanding of the subject and improves your understanding of the topic. Highly Recommended
por Carlos A L P•
Good continuation of RNNs covering theory and Python exercises using a few algorithms and uses cases. I would love to see more content and more interesting examples to implement in Python. Still, this is a nice introduction to sequence models
por Jeremy O•
I really liked it, however I don't feel like it really went into some of the more practicle issues with sequence models. I was left feeling like I wouldn't really know what to do in a situation where I had highly variable sequence lengths.
por Paulo M•
I preferred the first specialization courses. The explanations are not so clear as the explanations in the first courses. I will make the NLP specialization to have a better understanding. Anyway, I recommend the specialization. Very good!
