Best choice for learning NN! :-)

Prof. Hinton's course was my first Coursera experience and I liked it a lot. A lot of tasks of very different levels! And even if you are familiar with calculus/linear algebra some things will still be challenging. P.S. Couple of slides in the course were missing, but I hope this will be fixed soon.

An excellent introduction to one of the most exciting aspects of computer science from one of the most famous catalysts of the deep learning revolution... I know that sounded like a canned review but I really like this course. I would recommend a solid math background, especially basic linear algebra and partial derivatives. If you're truly interested in neural networks those are two must learns anyway so get to it!

Thanks Prof. Hinton and Coursera. This is one of the best courses I've ever taken. I learned a lot about neural networks and deep learning!
