It is very nice to have a very experienced deep learning practitioner showing you the "magic" of making DNN works. That is usually passed from Professor to graduate student, but is available here now.
While the information from this course was awesome I would've liked some hand on projects to get the information running. Nonetheless, the two simulation task were the best (more would've been neat!).
By Andrew W•
Good information about how to structure projects and how to boost performance. Not very hands-on however. Fits in well with the Specialization though as a break before CNN's and sequences.
By Daniel C•
Not as helpful... just a few suggestions and ideas... but there's no great application of the information learned here like a walk-through project or something with code, that's graded.
By Luiz C•
less useful than previous courses.
Would appreciate to go much deeper in directions like CNN, RNN, RL and review Unsupervised Learning (which was too light, ... no mention about RBM)
By Akshay S•
It was very theoretical and subjective.
It would be useful if the learner has some more experience in DNN than currently expected.
But I definitely enjoyed 2nd week of the course.
By Andrew C•
Interesting content, but lacking in real work. As with all of the deeplearning.ai courses thus far, the multiple choice questions are frequently ambiguous and poorly worded.
By Zsolt K•
The information is really basic, most of it is self explanatory. This shouldn't be a course on its own, rather maybe a week/half weeks worth of material in another course.
By Sherif A•
This course is too subjective. Andrew shares his experience in a structured way in the lecture. However, I feel that correct structuring decisions need to be brainstormed.
By Patrick F•
Seeing different practical use scenarios and adaptions is fine but it got pretty boring without a real application to tune. The Quizzes on the other hand were very good!
By Alberto S•
Although everything taught is relevant, it was too much theoretical. And some of the evaluation questions are not clear (well, at least for non native English speakers).
By Daniel V•
Generally useful skills, but the contents partially overlap with previous courses and the overall quality doesn't match the previous courses (eg poor video mastering).
By Davide C•
The course was interesting, but in my opinion too theoretical. I preferred the first 2 courses with Python programming. I am now looking forward to the next 2 courses.
By Felipe L d S•
Even though some of the content is useful, I feel like this course should be merged with the second one. There is not new information enough to justify a new course.
By Thomas J•
Good material was presented in this course but there were a number of technical errors in the video recordings. If they were cleaned up this course would be perfect.
By Jose P•
Topics are a bit vague, which is fine as the content is interesting and useful nonetheless, but perhaps exposition is too lengthy relative to the amount of content.
By Robbin R•
Gives good insights on how to work on a Machine Learning project yet. Provides some rule of thumbs for different hick-ups that may be encountered during a project.
By Nick S•
even though there are great tips and advices, it does not justify an entire course and they can be mentioned in 3 videos so a lot of the videos were repetitive.
By Kan X•
I like this specialization in general. However, this third one has too many overlapping contents and some videos are not that useful. Just personal opinion.
Homework is lacking. It is too easy to pass. I feel like the programming task or homework task fell short. The lectures were good but too little practice.
By Hanbo L•
Good non-technical materials, but short enough to be incorporated into other courses. Some aspects feel subjective. Many typos/minor mistakes in quizzes
By vincent p•
Was really enthousiastic about the first two courses in the specialization, the third however felt a bit like going back a step in level of advancement.
By Rishabh G•
A different course for only two weeks of content? This is nuts. I waited for 15 days for financial aid to be approved and I completed it within 5 days.
By Leitner C S E S•
Only interesting if you don't have much experience with machine learning; Might or might not be great if you are a novice, though - hard to say for me.
By Deleted A•
There was some very valuable material. However, I think some of the videos could have been prepared a little bit better and could do with more editing
By Carsten F•
Course was less interesting than the other parts. Also very negative that the last part of the 5-part specialization is taking ages to be finalized.
By Dany J•
Good content, but could definitely benefit from a more fleshed out problem to solve. The content beg for a larger concrete coding exercice project.
