The course provides deeper understanding of math and intuition behind machine learning algorithms. I felt this course is useful in getting the fundamentals if you have never taken a AI, data mining or related course . And topics such as building machine learning systems (bias vs variance trade-off), ceiling analysis are useful not only for developers and leads. I wish there should have been more sessions on real-life examples but that would be best to be covered in another course.

Awesome course! Just the insight I need on machine learning to start struggling on my own! Congratulations professor Andrew and the organizers! Great work!

awesome at first hand machine learning course, i admire Andrew talent.

Great course for learning the algebra inside ML algorithms and understanding the nuts and bolts of them.
