Excellent! But, I am missing some of the prerequisites since I just wanted to take a chance and try things out, but feel like proceeding further might lead to some stumbling blocks.

First 3 weeks were quite good, although I found lack of lab practice. The time limitations on using GCP account were slightly pushing to complete it fast without having time for thorough thinking and experimenting. Although they could be restarted - the work had to be recreated again when this happened. Last week was very shallow and non-consequent and looked like it should be the first week as there were explanations of ML and GCP AI Notebooks. Which had been used during already during the first 3 weeks. Although I'm impressed with GCP platform and its AI capabilities, I felt like it had been highly advertised and selling though the course, where my personal preference would be learning more of algorithms and experimenting and using GCP just as one a tool.

Most of the course is used to advertise GoogleCloud, in particular BigQuery, instead of teaching more general concepts. At least now I know what BigQuery is and, as a python programmer, I won't be using it since I don't want to learn a new language used and managed only by Google. The AI notebooks are awesome though! Exactly the opposite of BigQuery: uses a language and tools that everyone knows (python notebook) but on a virtual machine managed in the cloud. About the teachings, I learn a bit more about time series, but just the tip of the iceberg really, nothing applicable. Looking forward to the real deal, opefully in the next course.

The course isn't really for complete beginner. It requires additional readings and googling on your own to understand the gaps. The labs are great to provide hands-on application (albeit requiring some knowledge of Pandas, scikit-learn and statsmodels) and but I feel that some of the content could have been discussed more in details in the video lectures or as supplementary readings. Nevertheless if you are willing to spend extra time researching to understand better, this course is still great for you.

Like the finance aspect of things but the machine learning part seems to be pieced together from other lecture series and doesn't have great relevance to the trading topic. Also I am not here to learn the way Google do things albeit its power. You can run a separate ad channel if you want but why Coursera?

Very well covered the theory of Training and its representation as a problem solving tool when it comes to predicting future prices, however the Machine Learning Part is not at all integrated to the Specialization (Trading) and also its content is not interconnected!

This course tries to be an introduction but it's not enough to give you an overview of ML and not well prepared also.
Labs are not encouraging to solve problems, it gives very trivial problem without focusing on enhancing your abilities on the learned subject.

Useful as an introduction but feels like a patchwork of components that have not been developed in a consistent manner. For example the week 4 material is by and large a replication of a subset of what is found in the "How Google does AI/ML.

the platform they chose for submitting homework was not very well. most of the time it took me 15min to get to the platform to code the homework. also, it doesn't dig deep into topics, which is fine because it is a comprehensive course.

Decent intro for ML but very limited in how it relates to trading. I would not say I feel comfortable creating an algo after this course. Also, felt very much like a Google ad quite often.

The course seems to be more focused on advertising google cloud platform and there is hardly any focus on how to use ML or AI for trading.

Too layman. NO real ML techniques for real trading, just some intro that you can easily find on stackoverflows or something.

Ok as an introduction (it is what the title says after all), but I ended up doing a lot of things in the lab without really knowing why I was doing them (e.g. loading different libraries, a lot of the syntax, etc.). Granted I can research that on my own, but more guidance would have been appreciated.
More broadly, this course feels a bit chaotic, jumping from one topic to the other, and then getting back at a previous one. This is ok to explore the fundamentals, which is clearly the intent here, but more structure would be welcome. Particularly, the introduction to Jupyter notebooks coming at the end of the course, after three labs, feels a bit frustrating. On a similar note, the course really feels like (and clearly is) something that was patched together from bits and pieces of other courses, with often times instructors referring to "previous" topics that were not actually covered (e.g. random forests). For a paid specialisation, this feels a bit sub-par. I have had free Coursera courses that felt more consistant.

Had I not read another book on ML, I probably wouldn't understand a lot of material covered here. The course might be a good recap if you already know the material. However for someone who is new to ML, the videos just dumps a lot of definition on you without real explanation in layman term. I ended up having to go to other YouTube videos for explanation.
