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!!
great experience and learning lots of technique to apply on real world data, and get important and insightful information from raw data. motivated to proceed further in this domain and course as well.

Maybe this was once a decent machine learning course, but clearly in the last several years its administrators have abandoned it, and it is now in a state of neglect. All the assignments have bugs and errors which are never fixed. There are hundreds of forum posts with students who are confused by these errors but most of them go unanswered. When a moderator does answer a post (this happens very sporadically because the course has "limited moderation" aka no one is helping students), its only to point out previous posts with work arounds to the bugs. All questions as to why these bugs aren't fixed, saving everyone untold amounts of trouble, are ignored. I don't know if anyone will see this as I suspect most reviews on this site are fake, but please do not take this course if you value your time or money, its creators no longer care about it and are using it as a money machine they can run without any effort or interaction with students. U of M should be ashamed to have their good name on this.

Impossible to complete the quiz and assignments without EXTENSIVE self-learning from other material. So, while the quiz and assignment forced me to find the information I needed by googling and reading and buying books, the course material itself is so high altitude as to be completely useless. I only finished because I used trial-and-error and google to pass. I learned nothing from the course, but I learned plenty from the Internet. I'm glad my company is paying for this and not me.

This course has only given me endless amounts of self-doubts, frustration and misery. The instructor reads some script from start to end, shows some screenshots of the code and done. Then they give us unnecessarily complex assignments. Save your money and time, stay away from this course.

The instructor is very very boring

A bit more difficult that the first 2 courses, but it is understandable, as both the underlying math and the Python libraries are not simple this time. The Professor tries his best to introduce us to the various mathematical models and, at the same time, to show us valuable results in the Jupyter lab, all of this in the limited 6-20 minutes span of the lectures on Coursera. Given this, he does a really good job. You see that he would like to show us much, much more, but he simply cannot, due to the limitations of the platform. There are many valuable, custom methods (functions) available in Python in the lab, in form of custom libraries. For example for plotting, comparing, etc. It means that someone really spent time preparing all of this, thus it is much appreciated. Assignments ask tricky questions from the lectures, so be sure that you watched a full lecture at least once and that You were focused ;-)

Fantastic course. Even though it is an overview style course for many of the later topics, the instructor never failed to compensate shorter theoretical sections with practically applicable advice. Plus, the optional readings are the best in the entire specialization.

I really like the course. It serves as an introduction to all basics on machine learning, and the practice it's really useful. Totally recommended, even better than subjects related at universities ( I am a university student and I can prove it)

Very wide scope and covers both practical and theoretical aspects (although I wish they spent a bit more time on the math).
Way better than Stanford's course that doesn't teach you anything practical and treats you like a high-school student.
A very practical course for machine learning. By this course, one can get familiar with sklearn and pandas basic operation! The last assignment is a challenge for me. Thanks teacher for this great course!

Great course for the applications of machine learning. While I wouldn't recommend for someone with no ML experience, this was a great course for an R user trying to learn more python!

Very helpful and well-structured course, clear lecturing, and high-level assignments. I hope, however, if it can be offered another course specialized in unsupervised learning in ML.

Great Course. I love the way it is designed, delivered. I learned a lot. The most important part is that I enjoy every bit of the session and completed everything less than a week,

Course was designed in a well structured manner and the basic concepts were covered for Regression and Classification. Many many thanks to University of Michigan for creating it.
創建者 Malvik P•
The course is awesome. Professor Kevyn Collins Thompson, explains the topics with examples in python which makes content easy to understand. It is the best course for beginners.
創建者 Vishwanath D•
It is very good blend of study and practical assignment. Assignments were very well designed to greatly enhance the understanding about the things learned in the video lectures.

This course was challenging and extremely interesting. The long and detailed lectures and excellent lecture notes covered the material very thoroughly for an online course.

ML is a wonderful course.I learn new concepts with hands on experience.Each and every algorithm concept is clearly explained .I learn how to handle real time data set.
Very well designed courses! There are many materials to go in depth even if you have done Python Machine Learning in the past.
創建者 Eduardo L L•
It's a really good course. I teaches you the basics of many ML algorithms. I really recommend it for begginers

It covered a lot of important topic/ concerpt. Very structure program.

My actual rating is 3.5 stars. This is the best course yet in this Specialization.
Pros: I prefer Professor Collin-Thompson's delivery compared to Professor Brook in the previous modules. I think he gives a good overview and sufficient depth for an applied course, compared to Professor Brooks which I find to be quite superficial most of the time, and weirdly detailed in other parts. Assignment is good enough for reinforcement learning and definitely better planned. I also appreciate the link to additional readings which are quite informative.
Cons: Assignment auto-grader. This is still the biggest letdown of all the courses in this specialization Codes which work on your laptop or suggested elsewhere on Stackoverflow etc fails to pass the autograder, so 30-40% of the time of the assignment is spent on wrangling the code to pass the autograder.
Note: If i haven't taken a Machine Learning course by Professor Andrew Ng, this course would definitely be much harder. This course doesn't go to much into the background knowledge,and they mentioned this many times. But I appreciated the applied aspect, since this was what I was looking for.

This course is an survey on how to implement many machine learning techniques using the SciKit Learn library. Following the course, you can learn several interesting details about how to work in the field, but it is important to take into account that it is not possible to learn the algorithms during the course, since a huge amount of material is covered during a short time; to make the most of the course you have to know them in advance. It bothered me to discover that the course was planned for five weeks but Coursera has reduced it to four, removing the possibility of practicing exercises on unsupervised learning.
創建者 Andrew B•
Overall a good course; I learned a lot. But hard going at times for someone new to Python and Jupiter Notebooks. The time estimates for the module assessments are way under (maybe reasonable if you are already a Python expert and have some familiarity with the relevant libraries, but that's not my situation). File location mismatch between Assignment notebooks environment and submission / assessment environment was very frustrating.

Principles are good and well presented, and the excercises well made and challenging. Unfortuantely the Python is getting way of date, making it difficult to use the answers you may find when looking at the docs of scikit-learn, pandas etc, since they create incompatibilities with the ancient dependencies expected by the autograder.
The content just needs a modest amount of love to bring it up to date with current tooling.
