About the Course

This course will introduce the learner to applied machine learning, focusing more on the techniques and methods than on the statistics behind these methods. The course will start with a discussion of how machine learning is different than descriptive statistics, and introduce the scikit learn toolkit through a tutorial. The issue of dimensionality of data will be discussed, and the task of clustering data, as well as evaluating those clusters, will be tackled. Supervised approaches for creating predictive models will be described, and learners will be able to apply the scikit learn predictive modelling methods while understanding process issues related to data generalizability (e.g. cross validation, overfitting). The course will end with a look at more advanced techniques, such as building ensembles, and practical limitations of predictive models. By the end of this course, students will be able to identify the difference between a supervised (classification) and unsupervised (clustering) technique, identify which technique they need to apply for a particular dataset and need, engineer features to meet that need, and write python code to carry out an analysis. This course should be taken after Introduction to Data Science in Python and Applied Plotting, Charting & Data Representation in Python and before Applied Text Mining in Python and Applied Social Analysis in Python....

Very well structured course, and very interesting too! Has made me want to pursue a career in machine learning. I originally just wanted to learn to program, without true goal, now I have one thanks!!

This course is ideally designed for understanding, which tools you can use to do machine learning tasks in python. However, for deep understanding ML algorithms you should take more math based courses

Two point: 1) you can learn a lot here, 2) imagine you are shown a hammer but never explained how to hit a nail. Two previous courses in the specialization do both.

Course instrutor and materials are needed to be improved as they are very poor

Assigments\Quizes are very good and they are the mainly root cause for this rating

Some very good practical advice like dummy testing or data leakage issues Some trivialities and repetitions. Python code could have been a bit better commented

there should be some low level usage of sentences for a intermediate programmers,most of times it bounces up the mind ,not able to get the required concept

Know some existing machine learning functions and packages from sklearn, but really don't know how to improve prediction accuracy within each function.

Assignments are not really supported by the material provided (videos). The level is not balanced. Some bugs in the assignment code as well

This course seems hard and actually I did not like the syllabus so much. Assignments were so hard and there were some issues in Notebooks.

Good content, bad teachng staff. Though the discussion forum contributors were very helpful and should be commended for their efforts.

Unsupervised learning was missing. The codes written in the lectures were not explained clearly. Some topics looked unimportant.

Good overview of methods. A bit too intense at times though, may have been better to really focus on a couple of key concepts.

The course is great, but need certain improvement for assignments and quizzes. The facts should be checked multiple times.

Not enough real life examples throughout the video, makes it very hard to concentrate during the whole lecture.

This course is not useful to learn from scratch, but has some good things, for example the final assignment.

Really didn't like the quiz parts of the course. If it was up to me I would do thorough revision of these.
