excellent material! It would be nice, however, to mention some reading material, books or articles, for those interested in the details and the theories behind the concepts presented in the course.

Excellent course, well thought out lectures and problem sets. The programming assignments offer an appropriate amount of guidance that allows the students to work through the material on their own.

Overall one of the best courses I have had in my life. It was very well structured. The material was a little bit more advanced than the rest of the courses of this specialization and therefore more in-depth explanation need to be given especially in the LDA module. In a nutshell it was a positive experience both watching the videos as well as doing the quizzes and the programming assignments

Advanced course. The material taught in this course is more advanced compared to Regression and Classification courses. You have to invest more time in respect to the previous courses. For some topics (LDA and hierarchical clustering) I had to look for other sources in order to understand the concepts properly. However, this course is a good introduction to clustering and retrieval.

The videos are great, well-structured and introduce gradually the complexity. This is a good idea to explore both methodological and computation aspects of clustering. Unfortunately, the exercises requires the use of a specific library, instead of scikit-learn and numpy. Furthermore, they also required Python 2, while Python 3 is now widely used.

Still a very good course.
Week 4 was very tough. The general concept can be understood from a 10,000 feet altitude but the lesson and programming assignment need to be reviewed, maybe with a slower step by step example.
As some other student mentioned, it was... "brutal".
Other than that looking forward to the next course in the specialization!

The course was very detailed. The case study technique was rather very helpful as compared to theoretical technique. I would consider the programming assignments from medium to hard difficulty. The course could have been much better if graphlab as well as scikit coding would have been taught side by side.

Comme les précédents dans de cette spécialisation, ce cours est très riche et donne les clés pour utiliser des outils complexes et puissants. Toutefois, un peu plus de détails sur certains aspects, notamment théoriques, pourraient améliorer la compréhension de certains chapitres plus techniques.

Like all the courses in this specialization so far, the material has been good. The reason for only 4 stars rather than 5 is the difficulty in getting questions answered in a timely manner. There don't seem to be any active mentors for this class.

Greatly enjoyed it. As with the other courses in this specialization the discussion of the subjects is impeccable, especially if you've taken some preparatory mathematics courses. The reliance on Graphlab Create is a drag though.

Clustering & Retrieval was a lot tougher compared to courses on regression & classification because the match concepts behind this course were too complex. Nevertheless Emily tried to make this course as intuitive as possible

Till Expectation Maximization, the learning is tremendous. However, once past that, everything would feel incomplete since most assignments are spoon fed after that. Rating it four stars because of initial lectures.

Good and deep dive into ML!
Absolutely disappointed that the course was delayed and the promise to take it through Course 5 and Capstone Project didn't come through.
Not at all happy with that!!

This was a really good course, It made me familiar with many tools and techniques used in ML. With this in hand I will be able to go out there and explore and understand things much better.

LDA is bit too much for this course. Either they should have taken a lot of time explaining the things clearly or they shouldn't have touched it. I feel it was not taught properly.

This course was my first encounter with Machine Learning! The course gave me a good understanding of the different ML algorithms used in clustering and retrieval of data!

Overall is great. The LDA and Dendrograms lack quality/specificity and depth of the previous topics. So sad the Specialization collapsed at 4 courses instead of 6.

As explicações poderiam ser um pouco mais detalhadas neste curto. Tive certa dificuldade em alguns conceitos apresentados, mais do que nos outros cursos.

I'm disappointed that courses 5 and 6 of the specialization were cancelled. The cancelled capstone was why I purchased this specialization package.

This topic was very deep and I learnt many complex algos. Would suggest to have some more examples for the algorithms presented in this modules.

Very good course. Too long interval between modules make hard for non-Python developers. Easy to forget some of the Python structures.

Great course on machine learning, however, left us in middle of learning, Recommender System + Deep Learning Capstone is missing

Good course overall.
Starting to get more on the side of being mostly implemented and only needing to insert a line or two.

At some topics more explaination (eg. Map reduce and LDA) needed although as a whole it is good course.

More detail on theory behind LDA and HMMs would have been useful. Otherwise, another brilliant course!

Good survey of the material, but assignments are superficial and don't test thorough understanding.

Great course. Some week were tough others too easy, but general a very interesting course.
