Fantastic intro to the fundamentals of machine learning. If you want to take your understanding of machine learning concepts beyond "model.fit(X, Y), model.predict(X)" then this is the course for you.

Very helpful and easy to learn. The quiz and programming assignments are well designed and very useful. Thank Prof. Andrew Ng and coursera and the ones who share their problems and ideas in the forum.

The course will give you the incites to understand the data driven mathematical functions to write softwares that can behave or change its behavior, based on stimulus (data).
Andrew Ng is excellent

Thank you Professor Ng for taking the time to produce such a phenomenal course. As mystifying as machine learning can appear to be, your well-paced and digestible teaching style gave me the opportunity to understand. With fantastic lectures, mid-video quizzes, end of topic quizzes, and programming assignments, you as a student are given all the resources you need to absorb the material.
These eleven weeks really gave me the perspective and knowledge I sought for. This is the first online course that I have taken and I am inspired and excited for the future of machine learning and e-learning. The final heartfelt video was a perfect conclusion and I wish to return the sentiment of gratitude and appreciation.
Thank you again, and rest assured that your teaching is having a profound impact on peoples lives across the world.

Very instructive course.
It would have been great to get an OCR exercice at the end.

it is one of the best course for beginners in machine learning, the only thing it lacks is its python implementation. If there is the python implementation of this course then no other course is better than this one

Very well made, well paced. Better than majority of college courses. Some errors do pop up midway through the course that should be addressed. It can be frustrating to push through these issues sometimes but they are the only thing keeping from 5 stars.

I like the course very much. One point where it could be improved are the assignments: it is really nice to be guided and to have a big part of the programming prepared but the drawback is that many times I didn't feel in control of what was happening. For example, that was hard to know basic features of the implementation (is this data a row vector? a column vector?) since I didn't decide it. This leads me to spend quite some time on trying to fix simple problems. In short, I wish I had felt more "empowered" during the assignments.

There is a lot to say about you Andrew sir but in few words - "Thank you very much for teaching us the ML concepts in such a beautiful manner "

Well explained, at the end of this course you will understand the subject and hold coherent conversations about it. Matlab implementation relatively simple, maybe too much so. Highly recommended course.

This course needs to be severely updated and fixed. It is mostly kept alive by the amazing community of mentors, in particular, Tom Mosher. Without Tom, I would have gotten extremely frustrated with the weird quirks that come about during assignments. One important piece of advice: if you can do assignments in an Octave environment such as GNU Octave 4.0.3, I'd strongly recommend it (Althought it tends to crash ofter, so save, save, save!!!).

Too easy for people with background in machine learning. But would be a good introductory one if you have zero understanding in machine learning and want to change your career track.

Excellent lessons by Prof. Andrew Ng.
However very poor support. No answers from any mentor along lessons, you should resolve all doubts by yourself.
I had a problem with my ID verification, I was waiting for a long time without any responses.
Also, it's difficult to contact persons who could support you, I tried to contact someone but just found a Bot. Terrible support.

Good introduction course, giving an overview of machine learning algorithms and some methodology. Off course a lot can be added, but it's a good start for people with little to no knowledge or experience in this field. A few points that could be improved: I would like to have better material support for each section. Marked-up slides are not a great support for reviewing the different sections afterwards.
It would not hurt to provide a little bit more theoretical background and justification when covering the different algorithms. Andrew Ng almost apologizes when going into mathematical equations, but this is fundamental to machine learning.
quiz assignments are rather easy. They could be a little more challenging
I would rather have the programming assignment using R or python than Matlab.
But still a decent course overall I think.

Sadly it's just introduction. And i would recommend to make course for python instead of matlab/octave

The course covers a lot of material, but in a kind-of chaotic manner. There is a lot of math, so if you're not familiar with linear algebra you may find it really difficult. Personally, I don't quite understand the approach. The goal of this course seems to be to teach people how the algorithms work, and if so - there is just enough math, for the students to get lost, but not enough of it to truly understand what's going on internally in the algorithms.
Also, the vectorization techniques of the provided formulas is not quite well explained, and it's left to the students to figure it out. This lead me a lot of times to trial and error approach, when I was just trying different approaches until something worked, but it was still hard for me to understand what really happened. Oftentimes I found myself spending more time on trying to understand how the matrices and vectors are being transformed, than actually thinking how the algorithm works and why.
Another thing is that after finishing the course, you have almost ZERO experience with real-world tools you're supposed to use for real-world projects. I'm thinking TensorFlow, R, Spark MLib, Amazon SageMaker, just to name a few.
On the bright side, the course teaches several general good practices like splitting the datasets to training, cv and test. It also explains very well how to work with different ML algorithms, how to monitor they are "learning well", and how to fine-tune their parameters or tweak the inputs, in order to gain better results.
The course ends with assuring students that their skills are "expert-level" and they are ready to do amazing things in Silicon Valley. That is obviously not true for the reasons I already mentioned (e.g. lack of tooling experience). I see this course as a starting point for anyone who seriously wants to go into ML topics, and to actually understand at least some of the internals of the 3rd party libraries he'll end up using. But don't think you'll end this course with any practical knowledge, or that you'll be ready for real-world problem solving.

Material of this course could be presented much deeper. Mr. Ng tries to avoid mathematical explanations.

The course is not for people with not mathematical backgrounds plus its using matlab.. these days R and Python are more used in the industry for ML. I found to this course via friends that said it's hard but very recommended.. i think there are easier courses online that can deliver the same concepts

There are too many mistakes and misleading statements made in the course material. There were a lot difficulties with submitting assignments in order to move forward in the course. I had to give up because I don't have time to be bogged down like this.
The students' comments and discussion would be useful if they can be accessed from within each lesson. I can't make heads or tails of what the discussions were referring to, when they are all clumped together at the course web site instead.
