About the Course

This course will provide you a foundational understanding of machine learning models (logistic regression, multilayer perceptrons, convolutional neural networks, natural language processing, etc.) as well as demonstrate how these models can solve complex problems in a variety of industries, from medical diagnostics to image recognition to text prediction. In addition, we have designed practice exercises that will give you hands-on experience implementing these data science models on data sets. These practice exercises will teach you how to implement machine learning algorithms with PyTorch, open source libraries used by leading tech companies in the machine learning field (e.g., Google, NVIDIA, CocaCola, eBay, Snapchat, Uber and many more)....

Really enjoyed the course - it was a bit heavy and required getting used to (also this was my first time doing a course online) but the course has a nice rhythm and it was excellent once i got the hang of it. Very useful course to get an insight into the world of Machine Learning and to increase curiosity and interest.

This course provides a better understanding to the Machine Learning. The conceptual part gives us good knowledge about this field. The faculty is also good. I was late to submit the grading parts still, they didn't bother about this. I appretiate them to provide me a certificate and knowledge without any fee charges.

Extremely well structured course. The instructors are knowledgeable and their teaching method is easily interpretable. The course mainly focuses on ML algorithms and how they function , without going too deep into the mathematics , although some mathematics knowledge is surely required before taking this course.

Probably the best course about giving you a general idea about Machine Learning and Deep Learning. If the Machine Learning course by Andrew Ng is considered a bible in the Machine Learning world, this course is a very distant second to that. I thank Duke University for creating such an amazing course.

Lectures on the various areas of the subject is very descriptive, clear and understandable. Also the course has provided basic and good knowledge of almost all the areas of the Machine Learning.

It is better if there are practical examples of coding step by step in Labs using Python language.

I love the way Professor Lawrence Carin systematically introduces each topic, explains it, and then leverages that topic to move to the next one. It was natural :) and helped me motivated to stay on the course. Thank You Coursera, Duke University, and the team for creating this course for us.

A fantastic introductory course to Machine Learning, which with its clear and didactic teaching method, makes such a complex subject easy to understand.

Covering topics as interesting as Image Analysis and Natural Language Processing, from both a theoretical and a practical perspective.

Before, I found Machine Learning as one of the most complicated subjects that I had in college but because of this course, I understand it more clearly. I must say that I've learned a lot. The instructors explained it so well that even a beginner could understand it. Worth it!

i really like the slow paced yet highly informative way this course has been presented.My only suggestion would be to give a practical demo with tensorflow as the instructions given are very much confusing and thanks for the course!!

really appreciate the professors efforts :)

this is a great intro for machine learning, the lead professor have a knack of teaching complex concepts in a step by step, progressive fashion. As student, I find the subject become accessible to learn because of the how it was taught, this is a great course

I suggest to every who is interesting in online course , should study with

They will teach you in a such that all your doubts will be cleared.

They have quiz and assignment at the end of lecture.

So I strongly recommend this to every one.

This introduction to Machine Learning has been carried out in systematic manner. It would have been good to introduce many real world applications, as just overviews, where what techniques are relevant to what applications could have been mentioned.

You learn a lot of things with excelent explanations. In the Lab assignments by using a framework you can avoid to deal with all the maths of the topic, what is a good point, because you could learn that later if you need or want to learn it.

Muy bien estructurado, prolijo y con una docencia de lujo. Me encantó la fundamentación matemática desarrollada durante el curso. Muy buen contenido, bien estructurado y con un hilo conductor nien pensado para un nivel de principiante.

This course simplifies the complex ML concepts by using good diagrams and this is exactly what a beginner in ML is looking for. This course is worth for all those who wants to have a fair idea about basic maths/steps/used cases ofx ML.

From zero background in Machine Learning to average in Machine Learning. I feel proud of myself, the journey has not been easy, I know with time and determination I shall get there, thank you Coursera for this privilege, I am grateful.

Great Course! Particularly, I enjoyed the way in which Mr.

Lawrence Carin differentiates each and everything. If you want someone who explains the Attention mechanism very well, then I strongly recommend you to consider this course.

This course is an eye opener for anyone who wants to step or learn about Machine Learning. It provides various scenarios and the steps which you can apply to current real world problems.

This course is a must for all the beginners.

Cours de qualité, très complet, où les principaux aspects des réseaux de neurones et du deep learning sont abordés. Les vidéos sont claires. Le cours alterne entre théorie, explications et pratique de manière équilibrée. Merci.

Very informative and beautifully explained. Not a dumbed down version of the field but actual comprehensive learning. The teachers were exceptional in explaining such abstract concepts clearly and without any bias throughout.
