Very good overview of ML. The GraphLab api wasn't that bad, and also it was very wise of the instructors to allow the use of other ML packages. Overall i enjoyed it very much and also leaned very much

The course is very intuitive and easy to follow; nevertheless it never falls in banality. It really gives you the wish to dive deeper in the machine learning world.
A big thanks to both teachers; their love for this science is very contagious!!!

Great Course, so much valuable information and in combination with Python/Graphlab, I think it is perfect when starting out on ML. Looking forward to the other 3 courses in this series. Lectures are both perfect and tempo is exactly as needed.

This was a great introduction to the field of machine learning. Full with practical examples and hands on homework the course really catered to my learning style. Although the initial weeks were easy, the last week gets pretty challenging.

Great opener, and I learned some good algorithms that I can already apply. Really liked how they walked you through every problem for the quizzes too--the later course was not like that, a bit more difficult with the quizzes, for sure.

Liked the interactive exercises and coding assignments, you can actually play with your own datasets using the ideas shown in the course and learn to apply the concepts. The course is really very basic but can be a good starting point.

I think it is a very useful starter course to dive into Machine Learning concepts and a little bit of practice. I am looking forward to the next course to begin implementing and of course, understanding more thoroughly these concepts.

Excellent course. I would have preferred sample code with Skitlearn and other Python packages as well because I believe still 95 % of the people use those. I liked the Sframe but I don't see right now many people using it in industry.

An easy, not simple, but humorous approach to a broad topic with practical samples that you can build on for further studies. Good for newbies as well as a fresh up for advanced applicants. Looking forward to the follow up courses.

Great overview of different machine learning techniques. You don't learn much about implementing the individual techniques in this class, but you get a broad overview of many different techniques, which is the point of this class.

Muy útil para empezar a conocer los conceptos básicos de machine learning, con casos comprensibles y útiles a través de python.
Los vídeos son muy explicativos y la corta duración de cada uno permite adaptarlo a cualquier horario.

very nice, no bull-shit introduction into main concepts from a practical perspective. It showed both easily exploitable possibilities in the field of ML as well as the outline of a huge horizon which might reach far beyond this.

This is a very practical an easy way to understand what is behind the ML world. Also, there are a set of tools in this course that would let you implement basic smart applications. I am ver pleased for being part of this course.

I enjoyed this course as a high-level overview of the basics of machine learning. While I liked the use of Jupyter and Python in general, I would have preferred that the course use scikit-learn. Overall, solid and fun course!

People who likes top-down learning approach should start ML from this course.
Instructors explain basic overview then follow with interesting practical tasks that makes you understand the topic much better.

A very great course !!!!! Two teachers are doing a good job. They use a kind of practical way, case-study, to teach me lots of practical machine learning knowledge. I will learn the next three courses in this specialization.
