Very good course. I recommend to anyone who's interested in data analysis and machine learning.

Good introduction with python example for famous algorithm such as random forest and k-mean

Very good. I enjoyed doing it and learned a lot.
I would have liked that it had included r as one of the softwares.

More examples in coding and results are expected. So it is more convenient for students to compare different results and understand deeper

Excellent course, some basic tecniques of Machine Learning are implemented in Python and SAS.

Excellent introductory course on machine learning focusing on simple linear and multiple regression, lasso regression and k-means clustering. A background in Python programming is useful but not required as the instructors discuss the techniques with annotated code examples.

More Implementation oriented and less math
also contains distracting background videos when explaining important concepts

I definitely appreciate this information on Machine Learning. And from an outsider perspective would say it is quite clear - when I put it into practice will see how it goes. I do like the video format and will say that through out the course the instructor

Learned some really useful ML models.

It is definitely a good one and easy to understand... What I mostly struggled was with the data sets which were hard to find... probably if some data sets would have been provided would have really helped - would have been easier to run the program through with multiple sets and see the best results across.
Essentially the major learning happens when you actually run it on your own (for which you may have to go back and forth with the instructors examples / teachings.

It´s a good course but it does not goes deep enough in the examples and techniques.

It was okay for an introduction to the methods, but I would have liked to learn about them in more details, i.e. the course was too short.

Not deep enough on diagnostic and interpretation

Disadvantages : Lacks Rigour, Lacks Support from instructors , Expensive , Peer review ( this is somewhat bad as most barely give any comments, though towards the end, reviews tend to be pretty good). *** DISCLAIMER *** I am not statistically significant as i only receive 3 reviews per week.
Advantages :Quick to earn cert, prewritten code available for easy use. Assignments on your own data. This is probably useful for people wanting to learn techniques for data analysis, who need not go too deep into the technique.
I would recommend this to people learning techniques for data analysis in various non-mathematical and non-statistical fields, though the content lacks rigour, and you need outside sources to help understand techniques.
This course IS NOT WORTH PAYING USD79, there are definitely other courses much more worth the money. You can audit it for free, if you do not want a cert.

This level of detail was good for easier statistical concepts but there are much better courses on Coursera for Machine Learning

It's not an intro class. But you can practice a lot if you know something.

The material is good but the functions should have been explained in more detail. There is kind of repetition of same thing. It should have given some more examples and changes in code to explain the different types of ways to apply same algorithm.

It goes over and over about the adolescent examples, which makes it annoying. The quality and production of the video is bad. Why to use moving scenes in the background (like the horses or the highway)? That's distractive and takes the focus of the content, better to use a blackboard.

Personally felt this course have a lot more potential. The explanations in the lectures felt very robotic especially when describing the scripts. At times the lectures slides felt like displaying the subtitles and reading off them. A lot more diagrams could have been illustrated for explanations. I have to watch other videos in youtube to get a better grasp of the concepts.
Good thing is that this is an introductory course, and the codes are given.

Absolutely unbalanced course. Course has 4 different topics, but it does not explain well non of them. In reality whole course should be dedicated for at least one of provided topics.

Not good at all.We see different processes without anyone making clear the reason why we should apply this processes ,under which conditions and what is the question that we have to answer when we apply these processes.The only good is that we get into some new terms and see new things.I could say that for me,it wouldn't make such a difference if it wasn't in this specialization.

Actually i want rate 0, as the instruction for the installation of new tools are quite vague and misleading
