About the Course

Machine Learning, often called Artificial Intelligence or AI, is one of the most exciting areas of technology at the moment. We see daily news stories that herald new breakthroughs in facial recognition technology, self driving cars or computers that can have a conversation just like a real person. Machine Learning technology is set to revolutionise almost any area of human life and work, and so will affect all our lives, and so you are likely to want to find out more about it. Machine Learning has a reputation for being one of the most complex areas of computer science, requiring advanced mathematics and engineering skills to understand it. While it is true that working as a Machine Learning engineer does involve a lot of mathematics and programming, we believe that anyone can understand the basic concepts of Machine Learning, and given the importance of this technology, everyone should. The big AI breakthroughs sound like science fiction, but they come down to a simple idea: the use of data to train statistical algorithms. In this course you will learn to understand the basic idea of machine learning, even if you don't have any background in math or programming. Not only that, you will get hands on and use user friendly tools developed at Goldsmiths, University of London to actually do a machine learning project: training a computer to recognise images. This course is for a lot of different people. It could be a good first step into a technical career in Machine Learning, after all it is always better to start with the high level concepts before the technical details, but it is also great if your role is non-technical. You might be a manager or other non-technical role in a company that is considering using Machine Learning. You really need to understand this technology, and this course is a great place to get that understanding. Or you might just be following the news reports about AI and interested in finding out more about the hottest new technology of the moment. Whoever you are, we are looking forward to guiding you through you first machine learning project. NB this course is designed to introduce you to Machine Learning without needing any programming. That means that we don't cover the programming based machine learning tools like python and TensorFlow....

I had no prior experience whatsoever in ML/Data analysis and I have found this course very accessible ( it is for ALL, as the title suggests!) I have very much enjoyed learning the basics of ML and would recommend it to a total newbie as me; assignments easy to complete and possibility for discussions with peers in forums

I loved how this course explained Machine learning from the base. This is a course that literally anyone can do. I also liked how they explained Binary numbers and all those things in the 2nd week although I mostly skimmed through it as I already knew all of it as I'm an Engineering student. Loved the course though.

This course was absolutely informative and quite interesting! Since the first video I've been hooked completely learning something new with each video. The interview of a panel of experts was really educative and I got to know about various hands-on projects.

Very good course that simple and interactive explanation provides you with insight into machine learning world. After this you can confidently start more advanced courses on the topic.

Thank You!

This course should touch deep learning that is also a part of machine learning

It was a bit too easy for me and the assignments were not that challenging. But it's good for someone who has zero experience on this topic and wants to cover it for the very first time. But i would not recommend this to someone with a CS background.

An wonderful course with basics on Machine Learning. Neatly done. Learned a lot and did some practical exercise too. Those who are interested in Machine Learning good to begin with this course.

Gained a general overview of machine learning. Learned about image classification, datasets and ethics in machine learning. This course is for a general audience, no actual programming involved.

The courase aims to provide the main aspects of Machine Learning, the problems of mis-implementations and finally answer to some eithical issues around AI and ML.

This course is mainly theoretical, in terms that, if you want to gain some general knowledge and you do not want to go into technical hands on paradigms (no-matter the technical background or even if you do not have much time), then it's an excellent course. surprisingly, it is offered an application for train an algorithm and create a model without writing a sigle line of code. And that is the reason for recommended it.

On the other side, if you want to deep dive into technical issues and learn technical skills (like coding ML), then probably this course is not suitable for you.

This course is basic without any discussion on different machine learning algorithms or any mathematical concepts like linear regression ,multiple regression ,etc.Nevertheless this course really helped me to understand the basic concepts involved in machine learning and what type of datasets to be collected for getting accurate results.In short,if you are new to machine learning,this course will enable you understand how ML actually works.

This course is perfect for the beginners who want to grasp the basics of ML. I,absolutely enjoyed this course. Dr.Mario Gilles made the basics of ML very fun and interesting.

Good course for beginners.

Section on boolean data is probably useless.

Thank you Marco & Colleagues!

The Course mainly focused on Image Classifier using plugin build by them. Instead it would be nice if focused more on own Classifier building using appropriate features and algorithm.

This was an easy to follow class that introduced us to the basic concepts of ML. It progressed lightly over key topics all example with weekly quizzes to cement these ideas. The course kept us in touch with real life experts and allowed us a peek into their world, pains & gains. The final project thrusted us into a real life example of ML of our choosing and make it all worth the while. Excellent class for beginners!

A Fantastic course that made me understand the basics of Machine Learning very clear. The course also let me overcome the misconceptions that I had on a few intricacies of Artificial Network.

I thank the team, University, and the professor to design a powerful course with a simplistic approach which made learning really fun.

I will always cherish being part of this course and learn from you.

Thanks and good wishes
