Very good course

Of all the many classes, talks, blogs on neural networks that I looked at, Geoffrey Hinton's lectures provide by the far the deepest and clearest conceptual explanations of how everything works and how it fits together.

I studied Andrew Ng's Neural Networks course before this one. It helped me get through some of the more difficult material. This is not an easy course and Professor Hinton pushes the student to go the extra mile. The best part for me was being taught by one the founding fathers of neural networks and his perspective and knowledge are very inspiring.

Really good course, highly recommended.

The only reason it does not get 5 stars from me is because some sections of the course, specifically in the second half, have some superficial explanations, not very clarifying.
