This course is perfect. The instructor explains the content in a simple and clear way, which is understandable for anyone.

Very practical with just enough of the theory to make it make sense. Great course.

Great course for intro to ML. Covers most relevant topics and gave me enough hands on exercises to solidify the underlying concepts of ML. This is not a TensorFlow or DeepLearning4j course but more of the fundamentals that those type of libraries are based on. Perfect for establishing a foundation for ML and Dr. Ng , can't say enough. Excellent presentation of the materials in a concise and clear manner. The resources for the course are also excellent supplements to the course material (Quizzes and Assignments). No regrets on taking this class for me as a introduction to the topic.

Getting to grips with Octave was the toughest, but i persevered, and it was worth it. Thank you Dr. Ng. Your course was awesome!
