This introduction course is a great way to start your way in the AI world. It gives some advice that will give an idea to newbies on what to learn particularly they recommended to learn math and stat.

The course design is excellent specially for beginners to study and understand the basic concepts in Artificial Intelligence. The lessons and course material are perfect and apt for this course-level.

The hours calculated to complete this course are not exactly accurate. The method does not include taking notes and having to go through material(s) more than once.

The course could have had some better visual examples.

The course could have offered ACTUAL counterpoints (not just in name) and discussion of those counterpoints regarding A.I. in our lives....(as people are not choosing to do this).

It's a good course if you don't have any idea about IA. It'll give you the most important concetps and the bases to start your own researchs.

Though, the definitios are given by IBM Experts, and they have different concepts by themselves.

It would be great to be homologous in the information and teach a course with set information and not only with a personal opinion by the experts.

Thanks Coursera and IBM for providing this condition for all Enthusiasts.

I'm very sorry that your website does not verify Iranian users,

Your goal is to provide education for everyone,

Why should we, who are interested in education, be influenced by politics?

Isn't education the best way to help deprived countries?

I feel that this policy has no place in educational justice.

The delivery format of interviews, on the one hand, and speech-to-text generated slides is monotonic. The interviewees repeat themselves. There is a strong bias given to the Youtube AI expert. I found the hands-on exercise to be interesting, particularly the graded one with the image recognition. There is lots of extra material provided for continuous learning.

It is a well designed course for AI and suitable for all who need to upskill themselves to domain of ML and AI. I took up this course to understand nuances of ML so as to apply in chemistry. I recommend this course to all irrespective of their field of interest. I did not receive the certificate as there is a big glitch. Coursera must address to this immediately.

1. Очень интересная тема представлена самым неинтересным образом.

2. Для тех, кто плохо знает английский язык и смотрит с субтитрами плохо оптимизирована подача материала и сдача тестов.

3. Последний тест оценивают такие же ученики как и Вы. Если вы плохо формулируете мысль на английском, то получите плохую оценку, которая повлияет на оценку сертификата.

As an engineer, this course seems geared towards training sales and business personnel the very basics of AI ML DS. With the information from this course I learned a few terms, but nothing functional to help me develop models or perform tasks related to this skill. If you're a non-engineer I would recommend it. Otherwise spend your time elsewhere.

The first two weeks are very helpful at establishing a broad understanding of AI. The third and fourth week lacks depth and mostly feels like an IBM advertisement at best and IBM propaganda at worst. Therefore the second part of this course is not really something I would want to pay for. The first part is worth it though!

the course data and videos are great no doubt about it however it is the verification process for obtaining the certification for this course which involves face scanning is severely flawed.I havent been able to get my certificate for a long time.

Overview of AI and data science, so it lives up to its "Introduction" title. Not much on the mechanisms but plenty of talk. Its kind of like paying for IBM commercial with AI info surrounding the promotions.

It was good at the beggning, but the final task was really dissapointing. It was just following steps on how to use a web service. It didn't help to learn how to build a model from scratch or it's basis.

A very basic course just explaining what AI is and what it can do. The course gives the most basic of basics and necessary I feel for the intermediate topics. The readings have to be made better

The general theory about AI is good, but I found the course from Andrew Ng better. This course could be shortened and a little more general and less IBM centric. However it is a recommendation

The first week gives you important terms from the AI world, and explains it beautifully.

The rest of the course may be interesting, but has nothing to do with actual learning.

Very nice course. It gives the basic idea of AI. But something missing in this course. The course not gives that detailing that I expected. Overall a good course.

The course is very theoretical with very little hands-on experience of AI. Feels a bit like marketing play for IBM and a chance to show off their system

Having to wait to review a peer's work makes it difficult to complete the course. You have to wait until someone else posts before you can finish.

peer grading is frustrating as cant even get my certificate as no peers left to review, such a time wasting way to grade

Good for super basic intro level course. Too many generic talking-around in the interviews from my point of view.

It was a lot of interviewing the same people. I wold have liked to have walked away with a deeper skill level.

Could be more straigtforward and more technical, too much gibberish. Content should be condensed.

It's pleasure to listen to the different angles of AI by experts with different examples.

This course is not about how to make AI. Its about why to learn AI and how to learn it.
