Very good overview of ML. The GraphLab api wasn't that bad, and also it was very wise of the instructors to allow the use of other ML packages. Overall i enjoyed it very much and also leaned very much
The course was well designed and delivered by all the trainers with the help of case study and great examples.\n\nThe forums and discussions were really useful and helpful while doing the assignments.

I enjoyed this course a lot! The case study approach is very helpful to quickly understand how to apply the theory to the real world problems. The course materials are very well organized, especially the lab assignments.

Both instructors are very good at explaining the concepts of ML. Also the practical part of the course working with Python and Jupyter notebooks definitely helps in understanding the concepts and apply them right away.

The course is a perfect introduction to machine learning. I hope the upcoming course will reveal the abstraction of algorithms used in this course. The instructors are awesome. The materials are very easy to understand

The case study approach for explaining machine learning concepts is commendable. This kind of approach will not only help in cementing the concepts but helps in making decisions when it comes to real-life applications.

These instructors are among the very best I have encountered as a veteran of dozens of MOOCs. Their expertise in the subject matter, presentation and pleasant manner made this a highly pleasurable learning experience.

REAL-LIFE artificial intelligence applications. The examples were so good and real match to the reality, so in this course, I wasn't bored by theoretical information but I have seen its benefits with the code I write.

Great course covering the key models, concept and applications in machine learning. Instructors showed good pedagogy, teaching complicated concepts in ways easily understood. Requires some basic knowledge of Python.

For me this is the best course for Machine Learning Foundations that I watch. It was challenging for me because I did the assigment with R packages. I hope on the future for doing other courses for the specialization.

Excellent course content with emphasis on real-life applications
Great teaching tools and I particularly love the teaching style of Carlos and Emily. Going on with this specialization till the very end.
Great work guys!

It was a really nice way of presenting ML concepts using Case Studies. Giving students an idea of deployment right from the start helps in thinking of an architecture of the system for any project that comes forward.

Love the way the subject is introduced. The course increased my interest for machine learning and also made me understand the power of machine learning first hand. Thank you, Prof Carlos , Prof Emily and entire team.
Un curso muy bien explicado, fácil de entender y unos profesores que consiguen mantener la atención y absorberte en el tema.
Lo recomiendo 100% para iniciarse en los modelos y entender los algoritmos simples de ML.
von Brian S•
Loved the case study approach and how it relates to real world problems. Utilizing graphlab also helped abstract away a lot of the details, but I look forward to diving deeper with the rest of the specializations!

This stream along with Andrew NGs is the best ML course available in Coursera. The lectures, especially from Emily's are one of the best. It is perfect for both experienced and newbies. Thanks, Emily and Carlos.

Awesome course ....Both Professors are very intelligent and teaching perfectly....Step by step explanation and also never feel bore because presentation styles are also very best. Thanks professors and Coursera.

The case study approach makes it fun to learn machine learning. The introduction to various topics through specific examples increases curiosity and sets the tone for the following courses in the specialization.

Thoroughly enjoyed this course! Really loved the case study approach of teaching. The instructors are excellent as well, throughout the course it felt like I was hanging out with my friends building cool stuff!
von Alessio D M•
I think the course is really COOL :) I know that it's really hard to cover so many topics, but I would have been curious about the area of reinforcement learning too. Perhaps mentioning MDPs and related models.

Thank you very much for providing us this cool and exciting course. Thank you, Emily and Carlos. It opens a door for me and I've really enjoyed ML so far. Hope one day I could be part of the UW. All the best.

Very good explanations and well-thought out assignments and practical exploration. The usage of the proprietary GraphLab software was a minus, but since it was used just for exploratory purposes, no harm done.
von Hossein N S•
This course was very usefull tome as it was implemented in a way that it's easy to understand the core of the module and the subject.
I understand and it prepared me for the rest of the Machine Learning courses
von Ethan G•
This was a great intro course to the topic, and the instructors both make complicated concepts accessible. For example, the explanation of non-linear features in deep learning is extremely clear and intuitive.
von PRAVEEN R U•
This will be really helpful for someone who really wants to start the ML journey and not sure where to start. The content was designed well to suit people across levels and technologies. Strongly recommended.
To define how machines can learn, we need to define what we mean by “learning.” In everyday parlance, when we say learning, we mean something like “gaining knowledge by studying, experience, or being taught.”

Pretty Cool as Foundations in ML!!! If you already have expertize on Pandas and python you would find this course as a good entry point for Machine Learning as the point of view is 50/50 theorical/practice.
