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.
The lectures covers lots of SOTA deep learning algorithms and the lectures are well-designed and easy to understand. The programming assignment is really good to enhance the understanding of lectures.

I think it is a great course. There are some issues here and there with notebooks and related materials. However, considering the large and detailed amount of content in this course and it being a new course, things not being 100% perfect is OK by me. I would rather have the thoughtful content and exercises, versus something much lighter that would be easier to produce. Thank you to all who prepare these courses.

Superb course structure, the assignments beautifully complement the lectures and the amount of guidance makes it easy even for someone not too acquainted with programming. As a suggestion would have liked slightly organized detailed presentations which would help in reviewing the course material later by glancing through rather than going through the lectures. Over all an awesome course with great learning. Thanks

I enjoyed learning all the five courses of this deep learning specialization. Special thanks should go to Dr. Andrew and the instructors for delivering the course material in an interesting manner. Quite frankly I'm a little bit disappointed with this specialization being too short. Expect more courses in this specialization in the future. (Maybe reinforced learning).Again thank you all for this great experience.

I'm grateful for the chance to take the 5 courses in this program for a very affordable price. It is the best educational deal I've ever come across. The courses are well taught, I will continue on to take other courses offered online on the same subject. Thanks to everyone who made this possible, and I will definitely try to make a contribution to humanity as Prof. Ng has challenged us to do.
By Nitin K•
Thank you Prof. Andrew Ng and team for these series of courses. The entire specialization was brilliant and the way the programming exercises were structured, using real-life examples was the best part of all. Prof. Andrew Ng always has a smile on his face when he explains the concepts and he is so humble that he thanks us for spending time doing the specialization, whereas it should be the other way round.
By Yiqiao Y•
I highly recommend this course to all audience. Professor Ng is an outstanding researcher with tremendous amount of experience. Moreover, he is a well-known lecturer in terms of his clear explanation and interesting examples provided in class. I have gained a lot of experience as well as knowledge in the field of deep learning. I am very grateful for his time and effort for providing all the resources here.

The best online course I've seen anywhere about recurrent neural networks! Prof. Andrew Ng explains everything in such a simple manner. For example, understanding the structure of LSTMs is quite challenging, but Prof. Andrew Ng explains it in a very easy to understand fashion. Likewise with GRUs, Seq2Seq models, bidirectional RNNs, etc. And the code exercises have very beautiful and detailed explanations.
By Guruprasad S•
Thanks Professor Andrew Ng and team for the deep learning specialization. The course material was well designed for online learning. The assignments were perfectly manageable with a few hours of investment every week and the learning was very effective. Last but not least, I found Professor Ng's wisdom, insights, tips to be invaluable to anyone regardless of their level of expertise in machine learning.
By Shishir M•
This was the best course among 5 course specialization. It was well designed, structured and application oriented. Assignments were pretty fun to solve as they involved solving real world problems. This course gave me direct exposure to industry level problems and helped me gain more insights towards the future of deep learning. Because of this I am really excited to continue working in deep learning.

Hello Andrew, I am a big fan of you. Learning from your every course. Very unfortunate that I can do that remotely only.
One thing that I want to mention - Can we have lecture notes on coursera, just like the way used to in CS229 that we can read before coming to next lecture. I found that that was very useful in understanding when things get harder.
Thanks hope we can improve coursera in that matter.

The Sequence Models course covers state-of-the-art deep learning methodology as of 2018. The instructor is awesome. The assignments help solidify concepts presented in lecture videos. One nitpicking comment. This course, being relatively new, was less polished compared to the other courses in Deep Learning Specialization. I'm sure future updates will eliminate glitches and errors in the near future.
By Raimond L•
Good course to help you understand how sequence models work and how to apply them for various problems. Majority of topics are explained quite well. Practical problems sometimes could be a challenge, but every problem has hints and a bit of theory provided. Overall this course was a very positive experience and I do recommend it. Special thanks for the people who made this course possible.
By Dmitry T•
I liked that this course was a bit harder than others in the specialization (well partly because It felt like notebooks were made in a bit of hurry here) but it was a good thing for me, since I had to think more on the programming excercises, read Keras documentation, derive backprop equations - and I believe such engagement with the topic really allows to understand and remember it better.
By Mary A B•
It's been so rewarding to apply what I've learned in the previous courses of the Deep Learning specialization to time-based problems. I feel I have a better understanding of how some of the "magic" technology like virtual assistants and speech recognition work. While the material in the first four parts was also very useful, the specialization would have felt incomplete without this course.
By Leandro O B•
Another outstanding course about Deep Learning.
It teaches Recurrent Neural Networks from the basics up to industry applications such as Speech Recognition and Natural Language Processing. The programming assignments are extremely useful to build strong understanding of the algorithms, which we code "from scratch" with NumPy before using higher level frameworks such as TensorFlow and Keras.
By Abe E•
It's a great class, and Andrew Ng is a great instructor. I wish the exercises were a bit harder. Since the course is aimed at all and I am coming from a graduate degree in the sciences, I realize it's hard to cater to all educational backgrounds. I would have liked to see optional/honors exercises to get us more involved. Other than that, I loved the class. Thanks so much for teaching it.
By Congyuan Y•
This is an incredibly great course for learning Deep Learning. The course lecture videos and the programming exercises are both so well designed! By learning this course, I have got a comprehensive understanding of Deep Learning framework, as well as the hands-on experience of using deep learning to solve real-world applications. Thank you for providing this wonderful series of courses.
By Simon R•
Loved the course, Andrew is a great teacher; very impressive ability to explain and give intuition. I can really see how I can build upon this course to help me in what I am doing at work. I think there is definitely some room to go deeper on some of the topics e.g. don't just teach sequence to sequence but also broader uses of recurrent networks. Maybe a follow-up course? ... please???
By Fabrice L•
This module of the specialization is a bit more complicated than the others; at least to me, I found the concepts more difficult to grab.
Anyway, thank to Andrew and his team for this amazing specialization. The lectures are great, the assignments are fun and have interesting examples. A huge amount of knowledge along all the courses. You can tell there is a lot of work behind it.
By Apoorv V•
I was about to give this course a 3-star rating unlike the other courses in the specialization, which I have rated 5 stars. The reason for that was the programming exercises in week 1. They are not interesting and do not impart a lot of learning. Please consider improving those. The reason I still gave 5 stars is because of the amazing programming exercises in weeks 2 & 3. Thank you.
By JC Q•
In the continuity of the 4 previous modules, the Sequence Models course is of very high quality, the material is concise but cover a wide range of applications and methods, and is delivered with consistent clarity. The programming assignment gives very good hands challenges. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in natural language processing or speech recognition.
By Mashrur M•
This is the last course of the Deep Learning journey, and I felt like a learned a lot in it. Sequence Modelling is a different beast compared to non-time series models, but I've mastered it thanks to this course nevertheless. I would recommend this particular course to anyone who has a moderate understanding of deep learning and wants to get into time series analysis and nlp.
By Peter V•
A succinct overview of a number of ideas in sequence models. Some of these were covered in an NYU course I took 4 years ago (embeddings, LSTM), others I had heard about but hadn't had a chance to look into (attention). The assignments were set up to be pretty easy, but I think trying to do them from scratch rather than by filling in code would make for a pretty good project.
By Guy M•
Great introduction to sequence models/RNNs. The real-world examples were very illuminating. Again, as with the previous course in the specialization, I felt some details of how to run/predict NNs using keras were lacking, which could leave a student floundering if they've never used keras before. This is in contrast to some other, much easier, tasks where hints were given.
By Alexander G•
Out of 5 courses offered I think this was the most exciting one as it combines everything learnt so far and teaches how to combine different NN modeling techniques to achieve desired classification/prediction features . For example, it is pretty much clear how one would go about building an app that would describe a picture to blind people and do that in many languages.
