I thought I was signing up and paying for a complete course. This is a money grab from Coursea to take what seems like open information from Google and charge for it. This is a 20 minute presentation that is falsely advertised as a "course" complete with a completely useless certificate.

This course is so short. There is an exact version that Google offers for free. This paid version had more content, but it is the same as the free version. Disappointed that Coursera would do this.

This is NOT a beginner course. After listening to the 20-minute lecture and reading some of the material, I was more confused than before I started. I hope to find something more fundamental on Coursera or elsewhere.

This was a basic course and was pretty very very easy. No practical implementation was included by using Google cloud. I hope the upcoming week may bring those as well.

It was exceptional. I learned a lot and the video was clear, precise and too-the -point. In such a short period of time I gained tonnes of knowledge.

The instructor was very good in explaining everything but the course was too basic and i think she should've told how these can be helpful and how we can use them to build apps or software i guess this information for the beginners should make a curiosity in their mind that oh these are the places where i can find these models and using it this way will help me build it and the idea would come to the reality but still i enjoyed the course very much the way she provided the basic information to each models. Thank You mam,

Thank You Team Google Thank You Coursera for such platform and courses.

Best Introductory course from google about Generative AI. This course was very helpful and i gained a lot of knowledge about Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Deep learning. Under stood how generative AI works based on Training Code and Labeled and unlabeled data.

This course gave me a clear understanding of Language models, Transformers, Prompting , Hallucinations and Foundation models.

a very good course who wants to learn about the generative AI on beginners level only one module is there so its not the time taking but surely a bit complicated to understand . after watching 2 or 3 times everything will be so clear must recommended

Great animation, and the explanations are easy to follow at the right level of detail.

It's by Google, so expect to be pointed towards Google products/tools; however, it's a short course that will open your mind to what AI is and what it isn't.

This training helps to learn about generative AI, how generative AI works, different generative AI model types, and about generative AI applications.

Apart from this, it helps to learn about supervised, unsupervised, and semi-supervised learning methods ,deep learning ,Artificial neural networks , generative and discriminative models ,use of Large language models, foundation model , prompt, transformers ,cause of Hallucinations and many more details.

Different model types like Text-to-text, Text-to-image, Text-to-video, Text-to-3D, Text-to-task and etc...

Also, this training informs about PaLM API with Maker suite for development process to develop own digital assistants, custom search engines, knowledge bases, training applications like generative AI applications.

Thanks for this training.

Overall I really like this course because all lectures, assignments, and tests are straight forward. A couple things I dislike about the class are that there should be more opportunities for extra credit and it would be awesome if the final was an objective essay about what we have learned in this class or what we like about the class. I believe that I have more knowledge about ocean, weather, and marine lives and hopefully, I can use them in real life.

It was very great experience for beginners to understand the Gen AI. Introduction to Generative AI course give me very detail explanation about the Gen AI. Where I was able to describe and distinguish between AI and Machine learning models easily. The available notes and articles are easy to read and understand about the future of it. Thanks for giving me such good experience and knowledge about the same.
