I've been learned a lot from this course. Thanks Andrew Ng a lot for this course.

I found this a very useful course for giving me a practical and theoretical introduction to machine learning. I feel that I can now have educated discussions with peers about machine learning (I am a project manager working with software engineers), assess technologies that use machine learning, and where necessary actually conduct machine learning.

It was well worth doing the programming exercises and I enjoyed the technical challenges.

It is a great introductory course. For me, I appreciate this course teaches me not only machine learning algorithm, but more important, how to debug and improve your machine learning system, how to do the right things in the right way from beginning or as early as possible. This could save me a lot of time.

Easy to learn how to leverage several kinds of algorithm to find insights behind data.
