The best course from Coursera Team that provides the introduction of IBM Watson AI Services, from full explanation of each features built-in the IBM Watson AI to full coverage of IBM Watson AI service's application for benefit in the real-world problem case.

A great introduction to all the services provided by IBM Watson also, I got to use the Watson Discovery practically and the quiz difficulty is definitely upped by a notch compared to the Introduction to AI course

The course has been very thoughtfully planned to convey the need of the hour, and the way AI can streamline the functioning of industries and businesses across different sectors.

Weak and somehow very lazy representation of Watsons possibilities. There were couple of good exercises, but most of them are look like dropped in the middle. Too much talk about how cool is Watson and everything felt like ... training for sales guys... not sure if this information really of 49USD value... and it might be cheaper to watch youtube... though they will provide nice paper in the end of the course but what is real value of it?

This course is valuable to people who already decided that they want to use IBM Watson and not some other AI. The lectures are focused on IBM services and products and how can be used. Other than that, you do not learn much of anything. Again, this is okay for somebody who already made a choice. However, it might be misleading for those who just want to get a basic education on AI (as part of the specialization, not on its own).

This course was somewhat interesting and I liked the hands-on part. I wish they would redo it to be less of an ad for IBM services and more of a lab where they'd teach use of the tools and try examples. Getting access to Watson was great and I was able to do a few experiments on my own but I'd prefer the course be more experiential and fewer video/ads.

Terrible course! Mostly ads for IBM show how amazing the company is with no flaws what so ever. It is funny when you say something like "IBM can't" then the student will defiantly know that the answer is false. Aren't we fed up from such fake world? Non sense questions about memorising some numbers or repeating like parrot what the others have said!!! The problem is that the course is teaching AI yet expect students not to use much of their mind.... most of the questions are better given to Google to find out what were the answers for them. This is waste of time course in the 21st century. My skills after attending this is barely advanced at all, but I have mostly wasted my time. Getting Started with AI is not a proper title for this course.

This course seems more like an advertisement for IBM Watson than an actual instruction course for it. The least they could do is provide access to an account more advanced than the "Lite" version available to the general public (seeing as how users pay $50 for this course) and allow the user to do more advanced tests using Watson rather than learning useless information about the companies using Watson and how it is used to operate elevators.

This course also lacked what I enjoyed from the first AI course, the interviews. This course featured nearly no intrapersonal interaction nor quizzes at the end of videos. Not to mention the amount of typos that pervaded through every aspect of the course.

Excellent intro to get familiar with IBM Watson AI services. When running into the multitude of services offered by IBM it can be discouraging and hard to understand what each service is all about. This course clarifies everything and shows three important things: what each service is/does, how it connects with other services to create a more complex application, and real-life, practical examples. After this course you know what path to go on and what AI services to use to accomplish your own business and professional goals.

The course has been designed very well that it gradually takes the learner through the various features and services of Watson, which otherwise could be very difficult to understand for anyone who is new to AI.

Overall, an excellent and easy to follow course on AI using IBM Watson.

This course is mainly centered near IBM Watson. This is helpful for newbies who are willing to know about the various applications of AI through real life implementations. This can influence anyone to get into any specific field to learn and make their career in it.

Bueno, Realmente me gustó. Se me complicó un poco con el ultimo trabajo de hacer una ejercitación on line con Watson Discovery pero luego todo bien. El curso abarca muchos temas, y este curso es una presentación a los productos de IBM

This is a must-have course if you really want to dive into the AI world. It was helpful to learn about IBM Watson and its use scenarios. It gives a broad perspective on how AI is used today, and boost your knowledge.

For a novice like me, very informative, and of course, useful.

Some might say a bit "advertisive" [if that's a valid English word], but IBM Watson deserves it, I don't mind if they brag a bit – they may!

Awesome! Huge Thanks to IBM for preraring such a basic explanation of AI to beginners. As a petroleum and natural gas engineering student I will be more focused on machine learning and its applicaitons.
