The course was well designed and delivered by all the trainers with the help of case study and great examples.
The forums and discussions were really useful and helpful while doing the assignments.

Emily and Carlos teach this class in a very interest way. They try to let student understand machine learning by some case study. That worked well on me. I like this course very much.

Case study approach works !
I completed this course and found course materials present intuitive. Following courses go deep in each method.
Thank you Emily and Carlos :-)
A small request to Coursera to provide course completion certificate to free account like Edx.

The course starts from very basic level and allows to apply the knowledge practically right from the start so the learner can start to see the results right away which makes it interesting and addictive to jump to next session or video to gain more knowledge.

Emily and Carlos provide a very fun and informative introduction to ML! I really appreciated getting a "blackbox" overview of the various ML methods before doing a deep dive into the algorithms. GraphLab and the interactive iPython sessions are great!

Excellent course for those who wants to start to understand what really machine learning is. It goes beyond the theorical part, with pretty cool exercises. The case studies help us to visualize how the many applications we see at the real world work.

Excellent introduction and refresher in ML, this course talks in a broad range about the ML applications, and the areas surrounding it. Even if you dont plan to follow the entire Especialization, this is still a very good introduction to the subject.

I like the fact that the instructors kept giving intuitions and theories behind with a strong focus on real-world applications. Definitely enjoyed the general intro to ML, and am curious to see how the next courses in this specialization look like.

Very enthusiastic lecturers and good resources to learn from. The only thing to consider before taking the course is to learn a little bit of python, as well as having the GraphLab guide to look up for functions.
Best course I've studied in Coursera.

Very thoughtfully and beautifully created course. Both the teachers are really wonderful and know how to explain something so difficult in a very easy to understand language.
Thankyou for making it so easy and at the same time very very interesting.

Very good for practicing! It seems to be very easy when you just watch the lectures but after you do the homework you will soon change your mind because the homework is of high quality and can help grasp the working skills for machine learning job.

It's a basic machine learning course for new learners who want to explore what Machine Learning is. This course is a setup for the rest of the specialization and requires various guided programming exercises covering the most popular ML algorithms.

Really enjoyed the course. This was a great course for someone who has never taken Machine Learning Or Python. I found the Graphlab Note book very helpful. Plus I loved having the opportunity to write the code / algorithms with Carlos. Great Co

In one word, AWESOME. Made a lot of sense for beginners. Certainly recommended whoever is new to machine learning. Thank you Emily and Carlos. I cannot tell you how much help I have received from it. Looking forward to rest of the specialization.

This course gave me great insights in the theory. The praxis examples where also great. The material could be updated with at least documenting the differences between graphlab and turicreate functions. In some cases those are given, mostly not.

It brushes over all major topics in current applied ML and by the end of it you can have a taste of what it is like to apply ML to practical problems.
The best part is that it is a hands on approach, where you will be coding and solving problems.

What an amazing course ! Em and Carlos are the best people to learn from. The course was not easy so as to inspire boredom but also not very hard so as to inspire inactivity. If you like building things, this is the course. Thank you so much.
