Über den Kurs

This course will introduce the learner to applied machine learning, focusing more on the techniques and methods than on the statistics behind these methods. The course will start with a discussion of how machine learning is different than descriptive statistics, and introduce the scikit learn toolkit through a tutorial. The issue of dimensionality of data will be discussed, and the task of clustering data, as well as evaluating those clusters, will be tackled. Supervised approaches for creating predictive models will be described, and learners will be able to apply the scikit learn predictive modelling methods while understanding process issues related to data generalizability (e.g. cross validation, overfitting). The course will end with a look at more advanced techniques, such as building ensembles, and practical limitations of predictive models. By the end of this course, students will be able to identify the difference between a supervised (classification) and unsupervised (clustering) technique, identify which technique they need to apply for a particular dataset and need, engineer features to meet that need, and write python code to carry out an analysis. This course should be taken after Introduction to Data Science in Python and Applied Plotting, Charting & Data Representation in Python and before Applied Text Mining in Python and Applied Social Analysis in Python....

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!!

Course is excellent in content. Not heavy in mathematics (altough, I would recommend reading how models are supposed to work), the objectiv eis to have a practical understanding of how machine learning is applied and the important concepts to consider for a succesful model building. The focus is to have hand-on experience with the sklearn library.

I don't grant 5 starts (I hesitated for 4), as the course was designed back in 2018, therefore, you sometimes struggle with legacy libraries. Another issue, is that there are some hiccups when it comes to assignment uploads (for instance, the address of csv files!). As a student, this will make you hesistate and question wether the instructor screwed up with the autograder or not, which IS stressful.

Quiz 4 suddenly became non-forgiving, multiple choice answer have to be answered with 100% certainity to score full point. Quite anti-climatic, considering that previous quizes didn't work like that.

Final assignment is quite challenging, and might make the new student suffer.

I appreciate the instructors and Kevyn Collins for this great course. Now that I have a better picture, I get insights on how to focus my research efforts in sensor research and development.

I had no ML background, although I have the math the models are based on. The material seemed more than week's worth for a couple of weeks. The quizzes make sure you don't miss the key points you need to take away and need for the assignment. Most information or key words are in the slides, but course expects you to be independent enough (intermediate) to learn closely related ideas on your own via StackOverFlow and discussion forums. The discussion forums were especially helpful for this course, but then online discussions makes it more studying alone. Discussions helped me trouble-shoot and get better ideas how to approach the problems generally. I can explore and use ML and sklearn on my own, which thankfully seems to be a goal of this professor. No material could be left out, but when more videos, better longer time estimate for the week would be nice.

This course involves lots of concepts and algorithms in machine learning. As it is said by the teacher, for time, effort and aim limitations, this course only involves basic concepts and usage of sci-kit learn. It is a good hand-on course for beginners. Assignments are not so challenging compared with the previous two courses in the same specialization. I just finish assignments by following the module code in the course. I feel like not study as much as I expected through the assignment. I hope assignments can be changed by varieties and difficulties to let students know how a machine learning project is like and how the evaluation works but not simply call the precision/accuracy/recall function and the assignment finishes. Generally, you still learn a lot if you want 'applied machine learning'

I personally enjoyed this course much more than the previous 2 courses in the specialisation. Overall, this course is ambitious and covers a lot of different algorithms. For each algorithm, a brief intuition is provided and we are taught how to code in Python. For this course, I felt that the assignments were a closer fit to the content covered in the videos (unlike the previous courses where the assignments required much more independent learning). However, this course will not provide the mathematical rigour that some learners may expect. Furthermore, the amount of content covered could be a bit overwhelming. It would be useful if the instructor could summarise the different steps we should take when faced with a ML problem, esp. for deciding which algorithm to use (since so many were covered)

if you have a conceptual knowledge about Machine Learning algorithms, or at least supervise learning, this course would be very helpful for you. Otherwise, you are wasting your time.

This course is a programming session , helping you to implement the complicated machine learning algorithms using simple tools, without diving in any details or explain any mathematical backgrounds. So you supposed to build these fundamentals before coming here. For me, I took the wonderful course of Andrew Ng before this.

Furthermore, the course is very structured and organized, and its material, quizzes and assignments are greet , thus I consider their notebooks such a good reference I'll back to it every time I solve a ML problem.

Very good course. The content is excellent. You can get a good understanding of many popular Machine Learning algorithms. Maybe the most valuable concept you can learn is how to evaluate a classification model. It is also an applied course, so anyone more concerned of the applications than the theory will enjoy it.

The only drawback is that the evaluation of the assigments is done automatically, and you can have frustrating limitations for an answer that is correct but that is not EXACTLY as expected (I mean even the data structer have to much perfectly). The server also have quite restrictive memory limitations and the error messages are not always very helpful, but the staff will help you if you insist enough.

The course is an excellent tour of machine learning methods. The best thing is that it provides the python codes for various applications of machine learning. These can represent a great starting point for real applications. The significant parameters of each model are explained and the usage of the main models is well depicted. However, the course is very dense and I think it should have been divided in 6-8 weeks. At least the unsupervised learning part, which is optional in the Week 4 should have a dedicated week, with assignments. Before doing this course I recommend something like the course of Andrew Ng (without that one, for me it would have been more difficult to follow this one).

This course is really great for giving you a practical introduction to basic machine learning. You will be able to write code that builds your own machine learning models for regression and classification after you complete this course. Dr. Thompson is a great instructor and makes sure you know the fundamental mechanism of each model and how to apply it in practice.

The one reason this course doesn't get 5 stars is that each assignment has a few glitches at the beginning that must be fixed to import the requisite data. It's not a huge issue, but can't be identified without reading the discussion posts, and is honestly something a course of this reputation should have fixed by now.

The videos and jupyter notebook skeletons for this class are excellent! I've learned a lot and feel much more equipped to take on machine learning problems in the future. The quizzes were also informative, although the code sections were a little unintuitive as the base code was not visible. I also benefited from the forums where most of my questions already had written answers! My one hang up with this course is that one of the instructors/TAs responding in the forums was often rude and condescending to students. The information he provided was valuable, but his wording were needlessly cutting. More than once I saw responses he gave that were poorly worded in this way.

At the time of enrolling into this course, I was really not expecting that I would be taking so much out of it. But after completion I feel much confident about my concepts of machine learning techniques and how to use that knowledge on a real world data. This course also gave me a slight sense of confidence in handling any raw data and how to approach any problem related with machine learning solution. The instructor in the series is highly professional and his teaching style is relaxing yet informative. Thank you Coursera and Uni of Michigan for coming up with this course. Looking forward to other courses in the specialisation.

I found the course content ideal to start my journey in machine learning. It was a bit much for me to understand so much within so little time but now, I know where should I emphasize more and how to have more concrete idea and knowledge about ml. The course would have been the best if the content were scaled down to less and had been a bit more easygoing but people with high processing and patient brain might get the best output from this course. I did not understand a lot of things and had to self study a lot but thanks to it, I got a good start. Thanks

I found the course to be a little bit too much of a whirlwind for me to get much more than the broadest strokes out of it. A lot of the topics covered were mentioned very briefly without much explanation of when or how they should be applied - especially week three felt like a barrage of "this exists, this exists, this exists..." without much explanation, and I don't think I'll retain very much of it. The Week 4 assignment, however, was adequately challenging and did give me cause to go back, review and dig deeper into many of the topics covered previously.

Overall a good course! It was really what I was looking for: main focus is on how to apply algorithms and pros and cons of each model, instead of exhaustively explaining the theory behind each one, like some others courses do. The downside was the grade system. The platform has a lot of potential, but crashes all the time and there are many errors to troubleshoot when submitting assignments. The time invested to troubleshoot these problems was really frustrating, and probably the main reason i won't continue with the specialization.
