This is one hell of an inspiring course that demystified the difficult concepts and math behind PCA. Excellent instructors in imparting the these knowledge with easy-to-understand illustrations.

This course was definitely a bit more complex, not so much in assignments but in the core concepts handled, than the others in the specialisation. Overall, it was fun to do this course!

Compared to the first two courses in this specialisation, this course was not very engaging. Additionally it was often hard to see what the end-goal was and the instructor seemed to be going deep into details without making the practical reasoning behind it clear. Furthermore, a lot of the exercises involved repetitions of tasks that can easily be done by computers.

The content is good. But there were Jupyter Notebook/Server problems. (i) Submit button on notebooks did not work. Posted about this and staff did not respond or help. Then I found a workaround and shared with others. (ii) The graded assignments could be run ok, but the optional ones could not run at all owing to server timeout/bandwidth problems.

Classers are good. However, the exercise platform is full of bugs. Notebook keeps disconnecting, making it unable to save the latest changes. The automatic grader requires a very specific implementation in the last notebook, which is not mentioned anywhere and can you make lose hours debugging an implementation that is otherwise correct.

Thank you to all the professors and staffs for such a wonderful program. I did learn a lot.
This last course is indeed a fun and challenging one. But it fells short compared to the other two due to some aspects which can be improved in the future.
Nevertheless, I'm glad that I can learn about PCA.

This course is way more brutal than the two previous courses in the specializationIt is also very mathematically oriented, it lacks the graphics / animation / intuition that was given in the first two courses.However, if you make it, you indeed have a good understanding of PCA.

To me, the first 3 weeks in this course is good. But the 4th week is quite confusing. And I don't understand the applicable meaning for the materials in the 4th week. I may need to review what I learned in the 4th week and then decide whether I understand it completely.

Instructor has good knowledge of the subject. The course content structure is designed well.
Concepts could have been presented with more clarity. Programming assignments need more instructions and less assumption on what the students already know.

Good Course, but
Too less examples to do the quizes on the first run.
Programming assignments are not clearly stated, so you need unnecessary much time to succeed.
I liked the Linear Algebra & Multivariate Modul more!

The course is interesting, but some of the quizzes were not done very well. After the first 2 parts of this course, which were just amazing, this one seems kind of worse, although by itself its not that bad.

Amazing topic, great teachers and nice videos, but assignments can be slightly frustrating and some aspects (matrix calculus, derivatives, etc.) are really expedited... Still worth your time!!!

It's a shame. There's lots of good material and I learned a lot. But a staggering amount of time was wasted figuring out gaps in the instructions - portions felt more like hazing than teaching.

The derivatiion of the PCA in the last week can be broken into 2 weeks with different programming assignments to get a closer and more confident understanding of the PCA method.

I would ask the lecturer to go on more detail on the explanations and do (more) examples.
The lecturer tends to skip a few steps during calculations and demonstrations.

The knowledge introduced in this course is really helpful. However, the programming assignments are very time consuming and not necessarily relevent

Decent explanations of PCA idea, but assignments do not provide a clear feedback of what is wrong with the implementation util you get it right.

The course was highly challenging. I wish some of the explanations were detailed and the assignments had better instructions.

The professor of other two a way better. This one skips some steps in some explanation that makes the tasks hard to do

worse than previous courses of machine learning specialization. Really confused me when introduced the inner products.

Honestly this course is the one worthing attempting. However, last week's content is really messy and challenging.
