Just an IBM Watson Commerical, with almost no hands-on learning.

You get an overview of the different services IBM Watson offers, but you don't really get to see it for yourself. There are some labs, but it doesn't do a good job of explaining what you're doing. ESPECIALLY, the lab for the final exam. You just follow the steps with no explanation for what is happening or why you're doing what you're doing. It even tells you to take screenshots as part of the exam. Not only did I have no understanding of what the content I was screenshotting meant, there was nowhere for me to submit the screenshots. Of the three courses in this specialization, this was the weakest. I took nothing away from it. Obviously, I performed well on the quizzes, but a day later I didn't learn enough to even recall what features work for what purpose. This class could be done by just going to IBM's website and learning about the different programs. Not worth my time. The first and third course are much better.

This course is mostly one big advertisement for IBM Watson and contains very little truly useful information. It is an okay course to take for a complete beginner if you can complete the course before your trial ends, but there are much better free courses out there.

Too much of marketing videos and many are just vague talks without specifics. Too much of AI generated voice without pauses, so it overwhelms with too much of information in too little time and that too with vague terms and use cases.

While it's not that bad to take a grasp of Watson's capabilities, this course resembles more a big IBM advertisement. However, if you're studying in the context of the IBM Applied AI, things get better after this course.

Only got interesting at week 4 when you do the exercise. Good overview of IBM's portfolio of services/ products. Could learn most things in a sales pitch as well. Don't know why this course deserves my money.
