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.

Dato tool does not even install properly.. so n´makes no sense to continue with the course. The support team fail to help in installing ... :-(

The course is explained using turicreate , which does not work in windows properly. It should have been explained using open source libraries.

Uses very old versions of libraries. Many students are facing issues which remains unsolved. Not recommended to pursue it.

graphlabcreate creates many problem while working..it should be changed

Based on Python 2 libraries not working on python 3. Obsolete Course

Too old, bad packages, not much to learn. too basic.

Thoroughly disappointed to see this course based on
von Kaushik M•
Too many videos and not cluttered assignment codes

Out of date material. Poor instruction
This course is pretty good for beginners. All domains are explained briefly as an introduction. The best part about this course is very good hands-on sessions which are really helpful to understand concepts. The course is not very detailed but it's very good to start with. Looking forward to quality courses ahead in this specialization.

This is course is very informative for a beginner. It helps you to get up and running quick provided you have little basics on Python. You should( sideline on your own interest) also pickup Statistics/Math concepts along each module to make a rewarding experience as you progress through this course.

With a funny and welcoming look and feel, this course introduces machine learning through a hands-on approach, that enables the student to properly understand what ML is all about. Very nicely done!

A good course to understand the basics of Machine Learning. The only issue is the use of Graphlab library. Since it only works on Python 2.7, it is not convenient for people who prefer Python 3

Great course. Very informative and inspirational. I got tons of ideas from it! Thank you

Wonderful opportunity to learn and execute hands on coding of Machine Learning. The amazing task that Machine Learning methods and algorithms does behind scene is understood for the following cases / intelligent applications:
1. Regression (e.g. Predicting House Price etc.)
2. Classification (e.g. Product review sentiment, Spam detection, Medical diagnosis etc.)
3. Clustering and Similarity (e.g. Grouping news articles)
4. Recommender (e.g. Amazon personalized product recommendations, Netflix personalized Movie recommendations etc.)
5. Deep Learning and Deep Features (e.g. Google image search, Image-based filtering etc.)
The main challenge for me was to code using “Python3, Pandas and SciKit-Learn” instead of “Python2, GraphLab Create and SFrame”. I am now confident to develop intelligent applications based on Machine Learning. Thanks to Professors (Emily and Carlos) and to Ashok Leyland-HR for giving me this opportunity.

The teaching is of good quality and the lectures are easy to follow along. The only downside I thought was week 6 where I felt the topics weren't covered in enough detail in order to clear the quiz. Lastly, very disappointed by the exclusion of courses 5 and 6 which would've made this specialization a complete package.
lacture was good but one point i want to share to you don't use rare tools for assignment personally i faced lots of problem while installing graphlab better to switch to some common tools like sklearn python platform .

It is a good course if we take into account the foundational part. But since only one library has been used to solve the issues, one does not explore and write their own functions.
von Mohamed A E•
the course concepts were good but as everyone is saying the materials are outdated and you use TuriCreate instead of GraphLab so you have to search for the appropriates functions some times, and the installation was hard too because TuriCreate works only on Linux or WSL, I almost quit the course because I couldn't install it at first

The material in this course severely needs an update. Some of the code examples (not from the video, because the video is obviously from old materials) are problematic. It's an interesting experience to learn a new library but I wish the experience is different. The quiz should be tougher in my honest opinion.
von Jaime R•
Great introduction course. However, getting the notebooks to work with Graphlab is a real pain. The notebook exercises are also mostly make-work rather than real explorations. The explanations and the notebooks themselves are pretty good though
von Ezequiel P•
Excellent Theory. Very clear explanations with simple yet powerful examples. Sadly the practical part is not nearly as good. Mainly because of the tool used. If this was implemented in Scikit-Learn, the course would be excellent overall.
von Ayush G•
the course seems outdated in many aspects, the support isn't available to clarify doubts and the documentation isn't updated either. Moreover, the software support has ended.
von Jefferson N•
A good course, but the tools are a bit dated and it's showing its age.
von Craig G•
It is interesting, but turicreate isn't compatible with current version of python (3.8) and there's little/no support as the forum is not curated and not much student interaction. The problems seem to be only loosely related to the material. Many questions in the problems aren't discussed in the lectures and turicreate isn't widely used so it is difficult to find explanations or clues on how to proceed.
