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

Great course!\n\nEmily and Carlos teach this class in a very interest way. They try to let student understand machine learning by some case study. That worked well on me. I like this course very much.

This is course is great and the way its been taught by professors is very cool :)
I am getting to know the use case and than how we are going to do it, rather than conventional other way round. I am so happy that we first come to know about the application and its so important for a student to know that.
Thank you so much, only problem I see is that this course should have been started earlier :)

Its a course that provides a basic concept of what the ML is such as linear regression, classification, clustering and etc. This course not only offers the general idea for students but also implements Python-based code ( based on the all of case studies), which is an efficient approach to let me real know what the lectures talk about. Its a real nice course for the ML entry-level students.

Great course! Thank you guys for have been made such an easy to understand way to understand basics of ML.
The thing to improve: some assignments didn't explained in the course and I still don't know the way to discover the correct answer for the assignment for the deep learning module. The question about where the simple classification can be applicabable and there is a list of functions.

I loved this course. It did a great job of getting into really interesting applications of machine learners but staying accessible for people without a lot of previous programming experience or technological knowledge. I'd really recommend it for anyone who wants to get a well-grounded sense of some of the principal machine learning techniques that are changing the way the world works.

Brief but very good overview to typical Machine Learning models that are currently being used in many real applications. Nice and easy going teaching model based on case studies and lots of examples and practice during the assignments. For being only an introduction to this world, it was a quite interesting intro and now I am keen to follow up with the next parts of the specialization.

I found course content and they way it is designed is perfect for anyone to easily grasp the concepts. I am from non-development background and don't have much grip on python language but it was still smooth and easy for me to progress this course by learning python basics and commands as well which is required for programming assignments. Well done coursera, keep up the good job!

I'm just a high school student who wants to attend University at either UC Berkeley or University of Washington as a computer science and physics double major with focus in quantum computing and A.I.. This class was a great introduction into the world of A.I. / Machine Learning. I would highly suggest taking this class to get a start with simple programming and machine learning.

I would give it a five star if I had not faced problem while installing turicreate but then I continue course by using graphlab but it is not free and I do not have license so I cant use it for any other purpose like to build personal things. Also I would like to build my own model rather than just implimenting a built one.
But I think it was a nice course to start in the field.

This course is excellent. I am astounded at how well programming techniques and concepts can be taught in a MOOC. I wish these tools were available 20 years ago when I was first learning programming. The instructors were wonderful, too. I was particularly impressed with the clarity of the explanations. The assignments were challenging, too. This is not a course for slackers!

This course was really good I found it a really good start I also really like the way in which Emily was giving the theoretical parts then Carlos follow her with the practical part . Also Emil and Carlos have a really Excellent way in explaining the course material which make it really entertaining .
Thank you so much I really loved and Appreciated every part of the course.

I have been halfway through the course and it is excellent if you want to build strong foundations in Machine Learning. A basic level of experience in programming is required. Python is the medium in which programming assignments have to be done. But if you have a certain level of proficiency in any language then you won't have any problem. Anyways, great going till now.

Amazing course. I would recommend this course to get started on machine learning and understand its applications. This course doesnt go deep into the complex mathematical theory unlike others and the instructors do a very good job in going through the material systematically. Assignments are a bit challenging but manageable since graphlab has a lot of inbuilt libraries.

Excellent course to start the ML concepts ! The Case Study approach really gives a deep insight into each concept discussed. Looking forward to further courses in this specialization !! My python programming knowledge really helped to complete the course few weeks earlier !! Suggestions : An example using the python ML modules -sclearn,numpy,matplotlib will also help !

If you are looking for a course to find out what machine learning is. This is a great course. I only completed the first course so far and It has given me a basic understanding of what machine learning is about, the basic techniques, introduction to software used for machine learning and a look at what's ahead to deepen the learning if I choose to pursue this line.

A really interesting, introductory course in Machine Learning Methods and their applications. The case study approach followed by the instructors makes it ideal to learn how these ideas used in real-life problems. The programming language used is Python (GraphLab Create or Open Sourced libraries), which is most probably the best choice for newcomers in the field.

After going on with the specialization I started to understand how great this first course really was: It teaches you lots of basics while not expecting too much and shows how you can use machine learning in different scenarios.
On it's own it's possibly only worth 3 stars, but in the context of the whole specialization and further courses it's definitely 5 stars!

This course is great for anyone who wants to not only get a great overview of the concepts of machine learning but apply the concepts and see the results in week 1! You'll be using machine learning algorithms to train models with real data even if you have no idea what that means! If you're taking the time to read this review you should probably take the course!

This is a great class! Highly recommended. Emily and Carlos are a great team. The videos are polished, the progression through the material is well organized and everything just fits together very well in this specialization. The assignments are challenging enough to be worth the effort. Great specialization... I look forward to completing every class.

Very good introduction to machine learning, the teachers and assignments are very well planned and executed. It is a course where you can spend more time, as the workload is bigger than at usual courses, but you learn a lot every week. I am really fan of this Specialization and I plan to complete the whole Specialization given enough time in near future.

You were very near to be the legend of Machine Learning but after cancelling the capstone project you aren't. I'm really disappointed, why great things always not completing. I wish you to provide us with at least IPYNB for the capstone project because that will help us a lot. Finally, this is a really amazing course. Thank you for this great course.

that's awesome course. They bridged between theorem and practice. so we can imagine and know how to apply machine learning algorithm in real world and real problem. what's more, we can adjust and tuning machine learning algorithm to make customized algorithm. I am very confidence this course should give everyone great opportunities and good insight.

Machine Learning Foundations manages to provide a very intuitive impact on the understanding of the need and the accuracy of various ML techniques. The course takes the participant through a thorough conceptual and program-based approach. The various Algorithms and concepts are explained in utmost details, and the exercises are fun and challenging.

Aside from few technical difficulties, a very well designed and thorough course - this case-study approach is obviously a lot more involving and relatable than just dragging one through a bunch of theoretical concepts and equations (not that the latter is inherently bad, the other one is just more fun :). Would recommend to anyone interested in ML.

A Brilliant introduction to Machine Learning, I've tried several courses before but none of them got me engaged like this one. The instructors have a lot of knowledge and present the material in a very easy to understand way. Also the assignments and technical work is really engaging and challenges you to really learn the language and the concepts.

Great course--I love the case study approach! Combined with both instructors enthusiasm for the subject, the approach was a great way to ground the theory. The quizzes & labs guided a deeper exploration into the topics the details presented in the modules.
I'm excited to continue digging into the course material while moving towards the capstone.
