The course is very good and has taught me the all the important concepts required to build a sequence model. The assignments are also very neatly and precisely designed for the real world application.

This course teaches in-depth knowledge of sequence models in natural language processing and speech regocnition . The programming excercises and the quizzes provide more content to furthur your grasp on the matter . The progamming exercises being totally in Keras , provides a clear analogy of how LSTM s and GRU s , work along with attention models introduced in the last week. You also have to implement a LSTM and RNN from scratch in Numpy , which provides for the basic knowledge how these architectures actually work. Overall , it was a great experience and taking this course should be a pre-requisite for all learning in NLP.

Whew! This was very interesting and challenging. I have a huge backlog of things I need to go back and read up on and better understand. I really appreciate the work that Andrew and his team put into these courses. The lectures were very well paced and clear. His temperament is exemplary for a teacher and his subject knowledge comes across. I found the exercises really well thought out and beautifully crafted. The coding style could not have been more clear and the consistency made it understandable despite the complexity of the subject and the limited time to delve into the mechanics of Keras and the Python tools. Bravo!

The last course is in this series does not disappoint. I found this course to be more difficult than the others; likely because I had very little prior exposure to recurrent neural networks. However, this course is worth the effort as it opens up a realm of new possibilities; text, audio & time-series data. Whether you need to detect, classify or translate sequences, or even generate new sequences in the vein of some examples, this course is for you. There are several high-level APIs for performing these tasks but having a deeper understanding of what these APIs are doing is invaluable to your success. Take this course.

An extremely well thought off and comprehensive introduction to sequence models, with examples taken from the most important/interesting application domains. Andrew NG's clarity of exposition is absolutely wonderful on such an otherwise complex area. The assignments are very cleverly chosen and helped me to finally get to grips with Keras. This being a new course, the assignment notebooks had a few minor issues that are well known by now and documented in forums and erratas, and will likely be fixed in subsequent reruns. Nevertheless, given the breadth and quality of the content, 5 starts are absolutely well deserved.

This was, in my opinion, the best of the 5 courses. Actually, here's how I'd rank the courses (from best to worse):
5, 1, 2, 3, 4
I learned a lot about sequence models and half-way through the course, I was able to jump right in and try some ideas I had in PyTorch.
The assignments could use a bit more work: I didn't really feel inspired by them and their "fill in the blank" style prevented me from thinking too hard.
All in all, I highly recommend this entire specialization. I was completely clueless about deep learning at the beginning, but now I'm actually trying out some novel ideas!
Thanks so much Andrew and the team.

This course, undoubtedly, has the toughest assignments compared to all the previous courses. The content is rich and informative. Again, pay close attention to the hints given in the programming exercises. If you don't follow, check the Discussion Forums to get a hint. Professor Andrew, your teaching is absolutely sublime - Crisp and concise. Personally, I would have loved an entire week dedicated to Attention Models as the entire concept seemed a bit rushed. Other than that, I have absolutely no qualms! For the people who are enrolling for THIS course only - make sure you're pretty good with Python and Keras.

Such a great course. It explains everything from scratch and teach you how to code in numpy (scratch) and how to code in keras to build high performance system (instead of tiny datasets).
I recommend this corse and the DeepLearning specialization as well. Thank you.
Es un curso muy bueno. En el se explica todo desde cero y te enseña como programar los modelos en Numpy (desde cero) o usando keras para crear modelos de alto rendimiento (a pesar de los datasets pequeños por falta de capacidad de computo).
Recomiendo este curso a todo el mundo asi como tambien las especializacion completa en DeepLearning. Gracias

This a the last and the most anticipated course for me. It's hard, informative and most useful. I've got chance to learn some popular and powerful methods within the years, like word embedding and attention mechanism. I start to understand the way deep learning community deal with NLP, i.e., ingenious design of network structure inspired by the pattern human beings perceive the world. It doesn't enjoy solid foundation as statistical learning does, but is works and suitable for engineering. That's astonishing! I hope I can combine deep learning with traditional methods to better understand NLP.

Thanks very much for Andrew Ng and the other teachers, who made a series of these awesome classes including videos or programming works running on the jupyter-notebook. And also thanks the finical aid provided by the Coursera, I can't finished this course without your generous help. After a hard work with the Deep Learning classes, not only gained the knowledges, but inspired by the spirt from Andrew that "try to help people with your technology", which actually changed my mind, I will study more, do better to remember that in my life. Thank you and hope the world be a better place.

Awesome Course! Learned a lot. Would highly recommend this to anyone willing to learn NLP, Sequence Modelling, Word Embeddings, Machine Translation and related stuff. The course builds from fundamentals of NLP like RNNs then LSTMs/GRUs to Word Representations to Sequence-to-Sequence Modelling. At the end you'd learn so much that by just looking at a single slide of an overview of Trigger Word Detection you could make the entire DL model yourself. You'd be fluent with Keras after completing this course. I'd like to thank the Instructor, the Teaching Assistants and the mentors.

The last course is a little bit more difficult than the previous! Although I majored in Civil Engineering and got my Master's degree in 2018, since I finished the Machine Learning class of Ng 2 months ago,I found this art is so charming and powerful ,so I continued to finish the CS229, That is also a wonderful course!! And today,this DL course was also completed, now I am attending the CS231N class~ Thank you Ng ,thank u cousera, because of you,I have a chance to attend those amazing course from the most famous university. Ng,thanks,you are doing a great thing,thank u!!

Amazing course. This course was very informative. The assignments gives students the ability to code in keras and use those NLP models described in lectures in the programming assignments.
I felt there was enough help during the programming assignments from the instructors /mentors on the discussion board.
The only thing I wish about this course is to let the students program the Data science part of the programming assignment. I felt some of the details of the pre-processing of the data was already done. It would have been nice to do that or add as an optional part.

Very frustrating grader. Really time wasting. What is this team trying to accomplish with such disorganized efforts? I hope to see more improvements in the future. I have just completed week1's assignments and revising my reviews from 1 to 4 because the course content is really good and has softened the disappointments caused by the grader.
After week1, the grader frustrations eased as it was working more and more consistently. Most importantly, I learned lots of cool stuff and so I am revising my reviews from 4 to 5. I hope all grader issues are now resolved.

A huge thanks for this journey in the specialisation. The material is of high quality and the pedagogie of high qualiber! My only regret is that the course is not longer :P I would have love a course about GAN for example. Also an advanced followup on this specialisation would be amazing. Wanting to learn more i will probably continue my path with https://eu.udacity.com/course/deep-reinforcement-learning-nanodegree--nd893?referrer=nvidia&utm_source=nvidia&utm_medium=partner&utm_campaign=referrerpage, however i would love to continue with deeplearning.ai !

This is a superb module which provides you with the skills that will enable you get going fast in developing real world applications that can be modeled as sequence data. You learn of the latest state of the art techniques of developing sequence models using techniques such as GRU's, LSTM's, how to debug them and also how to employ Attention models to make your models that much efficient for problems in NLP, Machine Translation and Speech Recognition. This course is a must for anyone who wants to be a sound practitioner of AI. I love it.

Though there are some minor lost clarifications in the flow, the general learning experience of this course is overwhelmingly practical and relevant to many real world scenarios. Personally felt this course completed the knowledge graph (of course I only have a preliminary understanding of everything) and opens many doors for future learning.
One nit-pick is Keras documentation can be annoying confusing and misleading at times. Would suggest to revise programming assignment instructions based on some popular threads in Forum discussions.

As usual, Andrew makes AI almost look easy. I have one comment about programming exercises. There are errors in the text sometimes and, at least personally, I don't have a habit to check discussion forums first, before starting work on the assignment so these things were sometimes a source of lost time, scratching my head where have I gone wrong only to find that the results are correct and it was the notebook that was not up to date.
This aside, I would recommend this course to anyone interested in AI. Keep up the good work!

Finally, I understood LSTMs, thanks to this course, thanks to Andrew! Before this course, I spent many hours reading papers on LSTMs and trying to figure out what is going on with all these "Gates", but couldn't understand intuitions behind them. In this course not only I learned and understood them, but also I learned a lot about machine translation and speech recognition which I was frightened to approach them. This course gave me all fundamental concepts and tools that I needed to be able to deal with sequential data.

Completed Deep Learning specialization in the DeepLearning.ie. I really liked this course, it will be useful not only for the beginners, but also for the specialists, which want to have an overview about current neural networks trends and see the interview from the best specialists of AI. To make this course perfect I would recommend to fix some errors in the theory of programming assignments (specially in the last 2 courses). Sometimes this issues are confusing and forcing to check on the forums correctness of the task.

Great course!!! The best online course I have ever taken! I enjoyed almost every day I participated in that specialization, really an educational treasure! It is so comprehensive and detailed at the same time. Due to the good presentation of the topics it was really understandable. The only thing I would wish for future participants: please make it easier to get the complete Jupyter notebook environments from the Coursera platform once completed. I spent a lot of time here - even after consuming the related blogs.

Great content! Andrew's lectures are great as always. The assignments are absolutely exciting and fun. Obviously the team put a tremendous effort on the programming exercises to make them doable for laymen yet not trivial. The exercises avoid using libraries (like Keras and TensorFlow) at the very beginning. Instead, they started with the more basic Numpy implementations. After these practice, I am able to grasp what each layer is actually doing.
My only suggestion is to correct some trivial typos in the Notebook.

Thank you for helping me to get over the initial barrier to entry in NLP and audio data with this Sequence Models course. LSTM's are core to so many current technologies, and building them from scratch has provided me with good intuition for working with them. There was a good mix of numpy and Keras, as well as having the homework be clear enough to work through without getting stuck on minutia. It's always a pleasure to listen to Andrew Ng walk us through a problem with clarity, simplicity, and enthusiasm.

The course is well thought and easy to follow. I regret not starting on this earlier in my quest to understand RNNs. It is the best source I found through shopping around. The courses is scheduled for three weeks, but is actually doable in an afternoon + a morning session if you have some python programming skills and enjoy 2x on your lectures. My one complaint is not with the course itself but the whole series. I mislike the subscription model for payments. I prefer a one time payment for life-time access.

In this last module of the specialization, you will learn in details how the recurrent neural networks works. I really enjoyed and had fun with the programing assignments specially the Emojify and the trigger word detection. After the course, you feel comfortable to read all papers mentioned as references throughout the course. Moreover, professor Andrew NG is awesome because he explains the content clearly, it is a pleasure to watch his videos and he provides everything you need to go the extra mile.
