TOP REVIEWS FROM FUNDAMENTALS OF MACHINE LEARNING IN FINANCE
So far so good. The lecturer refers to projects of which some weren't covered in this course. So a little confusing. Takes lots of googling to finish this course.
Furthered my understanding of how probabilistic models are connected to Machine Learning models. Very happy with the content in this course.
Great course which covers both theories as well as practical skills in the real implementations in the financial world.
This is a great course, I strongly recommend. However, the assignments take a while to finish.

Frequently Asked Questions
When will I have access to the lectures and assignments?
Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:
- The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.
- The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.
