You’ve learned the basic algorithms now and are ready to step into the area of more complex problems and algorithms to solve them. Advanced algorithms build upon basic ones and use new ideas. We will start with networks flows which are used in more typical applications such as optimal matchings, finding disjoint paths and flight scheduling as well as more surprising ones like image segmentation in computer vision. We then proceed to linear programming with applications in optimizing budget allocation, portfolio optimization, finding the cheapest diet satisfying all requirements and many others. Next we discuss inherently hard problems for which no exact good solutions are known (and not likely to be found) and how to solve them in practice. We finish with a soft introduction to streaming algorithms that are heavily used in Big Data processing. Such algorithms are usually designed to be able to process huge datasets without being able even to store a dataset. UC San Diego is an academic powerhouse and economic engine, recognized as one of the top 10 public universities by U.S. News and World Report. Innovation is central to who we are and what we do. Here, students learn that knowledge isn’t just acquired in the …

    Too much emphasis on implementation details (99%), so one doesn’t get a great intuitive understanding of the logic of algorithms.

    A lot of material covered in this course. The assignments are more challenging than in the previous courses of the specialization. It is overall a great final and a very complete specialization. Thank for putting together all this work.

    Excellent course. One star less just because there are not very clean test cases for one particular problem among programming assignments

    Great course again! The problems are considerably more difficult than in the previous courses in this specialization. The only problem is that the forum interaction with TAs is nonexistent, if you stuck with a problem, you have to solve it alone.

    A lot of really useful algorithms are covered in this course, however some of the presentation is annoyingly sparse on details (particularly in the section on network flows).

    Lectures are mostly good. Assignments not. They are often very difficult in an uninteresting way such as unintuitive input formats and / or template code.

    Very bad course content for some modules Many abstract concepts and mathematical terms but with severe lack of explanation of the terms and lack of specific, concrete examples to help learners to understand them For example: in LP module there should be example of how the primal and dual matrix looks. How simplex algorithm is used on a specific example (showing explicit graph). I undertood only 25% of what was discussed about in this module No motivation to move on after week 2! Other weeks are slightly better In summary: Too many abstract concepts with little examples

    When they say advanced algorithms and complexity, they mean it. I was initially under the presumption that it would be a straight forward video course, without any assignments. But when I had to start with programming assignments that’s when the real test started. Amazing set of tutorials. Would have liked if the courses had more varied examples.

    Great course, thank you! My only remark is that it sometimes assumes that you have lots of prior knowledge on programming in my opinion. I’m a non tech guy trying to increase my knowledge of the field, and I’ve had a very hard time trying to find additional resources to solve some of the problems and to grasp some of the content. If we could have a bit more color on some of the harder parts during the course it’d be great.

    This module is by far the hardest in this specialization, but at the same time, it is rewarding. The only complaint I have is the Linear Programming part. I wish there was more explanation or some toy examples to go through the algorithm.

    The course left a good overall impression: the contents of the course are excellent and assignments are relevant. I’ve only noticed 2 downsides: the videos of the first week were sometimes hard to follow and I had to spend some time googling (which I find strange) (however, the situation changes when a Russian guy appears in the third week: his explanations are very clear and precise) and some assignments, in my opinion, take way more time to complete than they should.

    Very Educational and Enlightening. The only criticism I have is that the starter files generally need more modification than indicated to create a successful program.

    A great course but really very tough. Every module of the course deserves to be a separate course in itself. One thing that bothered was that the assignments were very vaguely explained and needed lots of searching and self study. Anyways got it after many many months.

    I really dislike Daniel Kane’s teaching style!!! His slides are rough and lack of details, the structure of his lectures is loose. Every time I met a Unit taught by Kane, I have to spend much more time on videos and assignments than other Units. This makes me very annoyed why can’t this teacher be more serious on teaching just like other teachers in this course??? : (

    Shout out to professor Alexander Kulikov that is the only one in the whole specialization who has good didactics skills. He knows how to explain a concept by giving examples and walking through them step by step so the viewer can understand the thought process. Unfortunately, professor Kane’s lectures were poorly taught. I understand that his videos are older and maybe the technology wasn’t there yet when he recorded the lectures. You’d better off skipping those lectures and going through the assignments directly, learning the material elsewhere.
