About the Course

The course will teach you how to develop deep learning models using Pytorch. The course will start with Pytorch's tensors and Automatic differentiation package. Then each section will cover different models starting off with fundamentals such as Linear Regression, and logistic/softmax regression. Followed by Feedforward deep neural networks, the role of different activation functions, normalization and dropout layers. Then Convolutional Neural Networks and Transfer learning will be covered. Finally, several other Deep learning methods will be covered. Learning Outcomes: After completing this course, learners will be able to: • explain and apply their knowledge of Deep Neural Networks and related machine learning methods • know how to use Python libraries such as PyTorch for Deep Learning applications • build Deep Neural Networks using PyTorch...

An extremely good course for anyone starting to build deep learning models. I am very satisfied at the end of this course as i was able to code models easily using pytorch. Definitely recomended!!

This is not a bad course at all. One feedback, however, is making the quizzes longer, and adding difficult questions especially concept-based one in the quiz will be more rewarding and valuable.

Very slow and redundant material with previous courses of the "IBM AI Engineering Certificat Professionnel"

More useful exmples in labs would be helpful to understand the possibilities with the method and tool

quality of videos at the beginning of course are low, fells like the machine is reading it

To focus in the coding but not the underlying structure of the library and how to use it.

Very Basic course. Would have enjoyed more interesting examples in the notebooks

The course material contains some really fantastic information, graphics, and programming assignments. However, the presentation of this material is absolutely terrible! It seems they intentionally tried to make the presentations as boring as possible. The lectures are monotone, the 15 second opening scene is annoying, and the content focuses 70% on the concepts of Deep Learning (which is fine) and 30% on PyTorch. So when you finish you do not feel very skilled with PyTorch.

Finally, ALL of the student complain that the programming environment is very often offline. You cannot do many of the assignments because the "Cognitive Classroom" is usually not working. However, the last lecture f each week contains the Jupyter notebooks for the assignments. You can download and then run them in some other environment like Google Colaboratory or IBM Watson Cloud. Also, most of the programs contain a programming omission that the students have to fix every time. The instructors have not fixed the problem which has been reported to them. So pay attention for the "Pillow Error" in Week 3 because you will be fixing it yourself in most assignments for the next 4 weeks.

Awful quality content that fails to teach or test you properly.

The videos are exceptionally poor using a text-to-speech narrator that makes you want to quit after only one video. Additionally, the quizzes are buggy with awful wording, typos, invisible options, and useless content. The biggest shame is that they don't use notebooks to test your learning with real examples that would reinforce both the theory & practical elements.

This course has no effort put into it & is clearly a money grab. Avoid this and instead try a or course.

The general content of the course is good. However, I was experiencing a lot of problem accessing the lab platform. Also, there are typos and grammatical mistake everywhere in the quizzes. The audio of the video are done using computer generate voice over, instead of a real person speaking. I think the instructor of the course doesn't speak fluent English, which is understandable why computer voice over is used instead, but the non-stopping speech makes me a bit hard to concentrate sometimes.

I hated the robotic sound in all of the lecture recordings. It made it impossible to stay focused. The homework was ridiculously easy (including the Honors assignment). In most of the quizzes, anyone from the street could answer correctly just by reading. The lab environment on the IBM cloud was really slow towards the end for training DNNs. I had to skip most of the labs before they finished executing.

The quizzes are a complete joke. If you're hoping employers will take Coursera certificates seriously, the standard of assessment here is not good enough by a long long way.

Very technical and math-oriented. Even after completing it, I have no idea how to apply it to the real world. Seems everything is read using a computer voice.

I found the course instruction is confusing, sequential and class module should be in different video parts

Me resultó un tanto tedioso y demasiado largo. Se solapa con contenidos de otros cursos del certificado

The external tool did not work. I believe there were some maintenance issues. Not good enough.

The course is extremely slow and low level. Some important information on the slides might be around for less than a second, whereas unimportant information might be repeated several times. There is too many quite similar labs and very few background information. The practice parts and even the final assignment are way too simple.

At least, it seems one is able to learn some basic notion of PyTorch,

Utterly abysmal! The lecturer is clearly reading from a script an never actual explains or discusses anything.

The monotonous tone is surely a ML synthesis?

All of the usual typos and code bugs, however even worse than is the fact that some key slides only stay on screen for less than 1 second. A very poor effort on the lecturer's part.

this has been the worst course I have ever seen... the guy is not able to explain as it seems the audience of his course are mathematicians... he makes explanations by showing things and saying numbers but without explaining the principles behind it...
