Excellent practical course!

So helpful because this helps you understand the Theory behind all the algorithms. Bring your Linear Algebra skills to the table with this one because, as much as this is related to 'Machines', many people think it's related heavily to 'computer coding'. Although, it's main purpose is to implement that, the purpose of this course is to build a VERY strong technical knowledge-base on the understanding of such algorithms so there's ALOT of mathematics (which is awesome, being more of a math person). There are assignments in MATLAB too, which are highly helpful.

Dr. Andrew is great! Very precise and thorough explanations!

Very informative and very well explained. It is just a bit outdated as there is no mention about the availability of machine learning platforms in AWS and Azure for example.

This course is one of the best ML course in the market with deeper true understanding of the algorithms. It helped me to not only get familiar and learn ML algorithms, but my mathematics and logical thinking improved drastically.
