About the Course

>>> By enrolling in this course you agree to the End User License Agreement as set out in the FAQ. Once enrolled you can access the license in the Resources area <<< This course, Applied Artificial Intelligence with DeepLearning, is part of the IBM Advanced Data Science Certificate which IBM is currently creating and gives you easy access to the invaluable insights into Deep Learning models used by experts in Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, Time Series Analysis, and many other disciplines. We’ll learn about the fundamentals of Linear Algebra and Neural Networks. Then we introduce the most popular DeepLearning Frameworks like Keras, TensorFlow, PyTorch, DeepLearning4J and Apache SystemML. Keras and TensorFlow are making up the greatest portion of this course. We learn about Anomaly Detection, Time Series Forecasting, Image Recognition and Natural Language Processing by building up models using Keras on real-life examples from IoT (Internet of Things), Financial Marked Data, Literature or Image Databases. Finally, we learn how to scale those artificial brains using Kubernetes, Apache Spark and GPUs. IMPORTANT: THIS COURSE ALONE IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO OBTAIN THE "IBM Watson IoT Certified Data Scientist certificate". You need to take three other courses where two of them are currently built. The Specialization will be ready late spring, early summer 2018 Using these approaches, no matter what your skill levels in topics you would like to master, you can change your thinking and change your life. If you’re already an expert, this peep under the mental hood will give your ideas for turbocharging successful creation and deployment of DeepLearning models. If you’re struggling, you’ll see a structured treasure trove of practical techniques that walk you through what you need to do to get on track. If you’ve ever wanted to become better at anything, this course will help serve as your guide. Prerequisites: Some coding skills are necessary. Preferably python, but any other programming language will do fine. Also some basic understanding of math (linear algebra) is a plus, but we will cover that part in the first week as well. If you choose to take this course and earn the Coursera course certificate, you will also earn an IBM digital badge. To find out more about IBM digital badges follow the link

I learned many things from this course. However, I think in some points it could have been instructed much better. But all in all, it is a very worthy course for the price offered. Thanks a lot!

It was really great learning with coursera and I loved the course. The way faculty teaches here is just awesome as they are very much clear and helped a lot while learning this coursea

I was pretty disppointed overall.

Pros : we see many types of tools and get to use some of them in the programming assignments. I feel like I now have a general knowledge of the field. I particularly liked the aspects of scaling and deploying models in production.

Cons : This honestly feels more like a rough draft than a finished and polished course. I would have liked a consolidated overview of all these tools, their pros and cons, etc. Some tools and techniques were explained in literaly 15 min(!) and in some cases simply walked through a tutorial from the tool's website (!!). A programming assignment was broken through not being updated for more recent spark versions. Some videos mentioned a non-existent programming assignment (I assume they were reused from an internal IBM training session), etc. The comparison with say Andrew Ng's course on ML is cruel.

Even though this course covers quite a bit of breath - in terms of implementation frameworks, there is scope of improving the presentation material. It will help a lot if the neural network models and the data transformations are explained using pictures.

Also, the one of the videos in the sequence of videos on LSTM for time-series forecasting (week3) talks about comparing performance of MSE and MAE but I could not find any such video on performance comparison.

Also, the assignments are quite simple and wish they had more steps for the student to "fill-up".

There is not much info on deploying the model and online evaluation of its performance. At least one video on how to do it in IBM data cloud will be helpful.

The course covers some very interesting and important concepts, however on a very low level. The reason for this might simply be the lack of time; one cannot properly cover methods for AI image processing, NLP, etc. in such limited space. I also had mixed feelings about the exercises: It is very nice to see applications of the tools discussed in the lectures, but unfortunately the exercises are so simple that they can be easily finished without really understanding the code.

The course instructors are very experienced and knowledgeable but the teaching part has not been done very well. The assignments were not up to the mark, and an attempt to included too many topics in a very concise format was made. Some topics like Feed-forward NN in Keras were covered very well but most other things were a disappointment.

Lo hago, el curso es muy bueno en cuanto al uso de la plataforma watson, pero falla en explicar los fundamentos principales con animaciones, ejemplo, el curso de pytorch de udacity enseña eso muy bien. En lo demas esta bien, pero al no contar con elementos visuales de ayuda en laclase de LSTM se hace tediosa.

Not the best of the courses. Lots of content which jumps around. There is very little practical work so I'm not sure what I have learned there. However, it does give a good overview of the possibilities. The speakers were very clear but there needed to be more engaging examples and user input opportunities.

The course is very resource heavy, i.e. it has great intuitive resources, but the learning experience was very poor. Some of the instructors were very sparse with the material contents, some just brushed over the contents without much explanation and.

The quality of the course has to be improved.

Good material. Hard to understand the instructors' English. Not professionally presented. Assignments are too easy, and we didn't get good, meaningful practice. Quizzes often address information that either the instructor failed to present well, if at all, or made mistakes on.

You can learn several things from this course but you need to know Neural Networks and Deep Learning in advance. The content looks a bit disorganized but still pretty useful for day to day Deep learning implementations. Really cool the System ML integration with Keras.

Too much focus on IBM platform, good overview on Keras/SystemML/DL4J though, some presentations could have been better prepared and implemented. Overall an average Coursera course and not a particularly great experience to work through the material.

Something happened to the free 1CPU 4GB python environment on IBM watson studio. It is unavailable and so I had to struggle with Skills Network Labs instead. Please can this be checked?
