In this course you will learn a variety of matrix factorization and hybrid machine learning techniques for recommender systems. Starting with basic matrix factorization, you will understand both the intuition and the practical details of building recommender systems based on reducing the dimensionality of the user-product preference space. Then you will learn about techniques that combine the strengths of different algorithms into powerful hybrid recommenders.

TOP REVIEWS FROM MATRIX FACTORIZATION AND ADVANCED TECHNIQUES
The content is really good, but overall the interviews with experts in the field are the best of this course.
Interview with Francesco Ricci is very knowledgeable about context aware Recommender System.
Very good. Per closing comments, it probably needs an update (since 2016) as this is active, progressive area.
Programming Assignments are not clear enough and the quiz for the last one seems to be a bit off.
About the Recommender Systems Specialization
A Recommender System is a process that seeks to predict user preferences. This Specialization covers all the fundamental techniques in recommender systems, from non-personalized and project-association recommenders through content-based and collaborative filtering techniques, as well as advanced topics like matrix factorization, hybrid machine learning methods for recommender systems, and dimension reduction techniques for the user-product preference space.
