About the Course

In the fifth course of the Deep Learning Specialization, you will become familiar with sequence models and their exciting applications such as speech recognition, music synthesis, chatbots, machine translation, natural language processing (NLP), and more. By the end, you will be able to build and train Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) and commonly-used variants such as GRUs and LSTMs; apply RNNs to Character-level Language Modeling; gain experience with natural language processing and Word Embeddings; and use HuggingFace tokenizers and transformer models to solve different NLP tasks such as NER and Question Answering. The Deep Learning Specialization is a foundational program that will help you understand the capabilities, challenges, and consequences of deep learning and prepare you to participate in the development of leading-edge AI technology. It provides a pathway for you to take the definitive step in the world of AI by helping you gain the knowledge and skills to level up your career....

The course is very good and has taught me the all the important concepts required to build a sequence model. The assignments are also very neatly and precisely designed for the real world application.

brilliant course, great quality instruction from Andrew Ng. The only faults are that some of the labs have not been supervised properly being a but buggy and a couple of later lectures were very dry.

If the programming exercises weren't plagued by some bugs, I would have given 5 star. It's a very complex subject matter, but Andrew takes you through it by the hand.

I feel week 2 and week 3 materials were covered a bit too quick. Would appreciate more explanation of the implementation details of beam search and activation model.

It was really helpful, every topics explained very well. However, in my standpoint of view, It did not cover some part in sequence learning, like graphical models.

Really nice course. Very informative. Unfortunately some programming exercises were a little buggy (the grader especially)...only a total reset of notebook helped!

this course provide an adequate and what you want to know about recurrent neural network but it does require lots of programming skills to accomplish this course.

Good course, but I needed more time than expected, especially for the exercises. For me, that was the most demanding course out of the 5 from that specialization.

A lot of cool material covered from RNNs to LSTMs to Sequence Modeling. But it is a lot to grasp and a lot to understand. Overall, rigor and course is decent.

programming assignments are not teaching us to code independently because of the helpers functions given in utils file. Feels like copy pasting the assignments

It is a really awesome course for those who want to get started with deep learning methods in NLP.

Got a very clear insight about GRU,LSTM,RNN,Word Embeddings.

The course is really good, one star less because it requires keras understanding to complete assignments properly. Including a basic intro of keras will help

The time allocated to some of the assigments should be increased. The estimated time in many cases seems to assume that one is aware of Keras and Tensorflow

To the point ; sometimes it would be nice to explain the research papers more in depth, and link other courses to have more formal mathematical explanations

Give us one more week to learn RNN for time series in economics, finance, etc!

Programming Exercises need more hints and more training in simple Keras models

Well-made course, but unfortunately there are tons of mistakes in the programming assignments - in the comments, formulas, even in the prepared code pieces.

The best course in the Deep Learning Specialization. Really good and well explained. There are some problems and mistakes in the problem assignments though.

Somes basics, tiny bit of theory, a bit of keras and insights for practical tasks. Some strage errors in notebook exercises makes it 2x time longer though.

Great course. The only tiny flaw is that the introduction to Tensorflow and Keras was a bit shallow so that I struggled a bit with programming these parts.

Instructive course with useful concepts. However, there were many more mistakes in the notebooks compared to the previous 4 courses in the specialization.

Awesome introduction, but feels like Andrew is a little bit rushing since it is the last course in the series, I dont feel it is as clear as other courses

The CNN course was better in this series of courses. This course is also good, but more content could be provided. Still the best small course out there.

Faced issues regarding assignment submissions. Otherwise, the course is perfect. Would upgrade my review to 5 stars if this issue seems to be fixed later

Es buen, algo extenso, pero suficiente para avanzar. Algo importante es actualizar los cursos con los nuevos algoritmos, al menos uno, por ejemplo BERT.

This course is quite challenging, but at least the concepts were well explained. Wished that Andrew and his team could conduct a crash course on Keras :)

A great intro to RNN, LSTM, GRU, Activation. Programming assignments are rather messy though (unlike those in the other courses of this specialisation).

Great course, I like the practical application and assignments discussed in this course , wish latest research papers were also discussed in the course,
