About the Course

Do you have data and wonder what it can tell you? Do you need a deeper understanding of the core ways in which machine learning can improve your business? Do you want to be able to converse with specialists about anything from regression and classification to deep learning and recommender systems? In this course, you will get hands-on experience with machine learning from a series of practical case-studies. At the end of the first course you will have studied how to predict house prices based on house-level features, analyze sentiment from user reviews, retrieve documents of interest, recommend products, and search for images. Through hands-on practice with these use cases, you will be able to apply machine learning methods in a wide range of domains. This first course treats the machine learning method as a black box. Using this abstraction, you will focus on understanding tasks of interest, matching these tasks to machine learning tools, and assessing the quality of the output. In subsequent courses, you will delve into the components of this black box by examining models and algorithms. Together, these pieces form the machine learning pipeline, which you will use in developing intelligent applications. Learning Outcomes: By the end of this course, you will be able to: -Identify potential applications of machine learning in practice. -Describe the core differences in analyses enabled by regression, classification, and clustering. -Select the appropriate machine learning task for a potential application. -Apply regression, classification, clustering, retrieval, recommender systems, and deep learning. -Represent your data as features to serve as input to machine learning models. -Assess the model quality in terms of relevant error metrics for each task. -Utilize a dataset to fit a model to analyze new data. -Build an end-to-end application that uses machine learning at its core. -Implement these techniques in Python....

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

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

-great introduction .

-go through a lot of exciting topics.

-but the implementation part is boring something.

Interesting class, but should have used open source python libraries instead of restricted license libraries.

It would be great if you could intersperse theory and practical sessions. Otherwise, a very useful course...

Wonderful course.

The only problem is that I can't review the course materials after completing the course.

Interesting, I never used graphlab before. It would be better if this course went through algorithm deeper.

Great introduction to the topic. I think the juniper notebook is still buggy. Its stability can be improved

It is a great introduction but this could be done by adding a week more in each of the following courses.

The course from coursera was well delivered. Albeit, their seems to be too much dependency on graphlab.

Nice intro but it could have been more in depth, not just as a simple graphlab/turicreate tutorials

I liked the interactive python programming however the course could be more rigorous for my tastes.

It'd be great to get rid of showing how teacher type code or write something, it's kind of boring.
