About the Course

This course is intended for persons involved in machine learning who are interested in medical applications, or vice versa, medical professionals who are interested in the methods modern computer science has to offer to their field. We will cover health data analysis, different types of neural networks, as well as training and application of neural networks applied on real-world medical scenarios. We cover deep learning (DL) methods, healthcare data and applications using DL methods. The courses include activities such as video lectures, self guided programming labs, homework assignments (both written and programming), and a large project. The first phase of the course will include video lectures on different DL and health applications topics, self-guided labs and multiple homework assignments. In this phase, you will build up your knowledge and experience in developing practical deep learning models on healthcare data. The second phase of the course will be a large project that can lead to a technical report and functioning demo of the deep learning models for addressing some specific healthcare problems. We expect the best projects can potentially lead to scientific publications....

This course is in my opinion designed for people who already know how to do deep learning but want to do an application in health care.

The isn't a proper teaching for deep learning, just test to verify that you know what you are doing.

I have tried to do this course and everything I learned while doing the test was by doing my own research

Extremely poor assignment guide. Most of assignments have ambiguous instructions wasting a lot of time

Great material. Poor support for labs!!!!

The content overall is good and the course has potential, but the developer lacks attention to detail in the programming assignments; the programming assignments are also repetitive. If you just want to understand a very high level of how to apply a DNN to a healthcare problem using PyTorch, this will get you started. Hopefully the next courses in this specialization are better.

This should not be on Coursera! The lab assignments are filled with errors. No one gets the results they ask.

There is no feedback from the course directors on the disscussionforum!!

The assignments are not related to the course at all. No extra help or knowledge were given before we hit the training of python or pandas.

I hate this course

because it has so much programming

and I

want only quiz for this course.
