This course will introduce the learner to applied machine learning, focusing more on the techniques and methods than on the statistics behind these methods. The course will start with a discussion of how machine learning is different than descriptive statistics, and introduce the scikit learn toolkit through a tutorial. The issue of dimensionality of data will be discussed, and the task of clustering data, as well as evaluating those clusters, will be tackled. Supervised approaches for creating predictive models will be described, and learners will be able to apply the scikit learn predictive modelling methods while understanding process issues related to data generalizability (e.g. cross validation, overfitting). The course will end with a look at more advanced techniques, such as building ensembles, and practical limitations of predictive models. By the end of this course, students will be able to identify the difference between a supervised (classification) and unsupervised (clustering) technique, identify which technique they need to apply for a particular dataset and need, engineer features to meet that need, and write python code to carry out an analysis. This course should be taken after Introduction to Data Science in Python and Applied Plotting, Charting & Data Representation in Python and before Applied …

    This course involves lots of concepts and algorithms in machine learning. As it is said by the teacher, for time, effort and aim limitations, this course only involves basic concepts and usage of sci kit learn. It is a good hand on course for beginners. Assignments are not so challenging compared with the previous two courses in the same specialization. I just finish assignments by following the module code in the course. I feel like not study as much as I expected through the assignment. I hope assignments can be changed by varieties and difficulties to let students know how a machine learning project is like and how the evaluation works but not simply call the precision/accuracy/recall function and the assignment finishes. Generally, you still learn a lot if you want ‘applied machine learning’

    This is the best course for machine learning. Assignments are really good. It make sure you know all the things that are taught to you. Even some times I had to go through the lectures again to complete the assignment.

    I struggled with this course. The lectures cover a great deal of information extremely fast. I appreciate that there are more lectures than in previous courses in the specialization and the information is better presented IMHO. The assignments were quite difficult and I struggled. Relying heavily on discussion forums and online posts.

    The course is excellent and Professor Kevyn Collins Thompson goes to the lengths and breaths to explain various machine learning algorithms and also provides a hands on the syntaxes for the code to provide a deeper intuition to the problem. The course has a lot of info to be digested and one must go at his/her own pace to grasp all the details. There were some issues with the grader but thanks to the excellent mentors on the decision board, they helped me sort out all the issues. So thanks to the entire team once again.

    The course content was good and the assignments were designed brilliantly. I learned more while completing assignments and reading discussion forums. The auto grader should be improved, it’s time wasting and frustrating experience. No response from discussion forums even on technical issues can keep you waiting for weeks unless you solve the issue by your own by reading 2 3 years old post and meanwhile lost money, time and patience.

    I had no ML background, although I have the math the models are based on. The material seemed more than week’s worth for a couple of weeks. The quizzes make sure you don’t miss the key points you need to take away and need for the assignment. Most information or key words are in the slides, but course expects you to be independent enough (intermediate) to learn closely related ideas on your own via StackOverFlow and discussion forums. The discussion forums were especially helpful for this course, but then online discussions makes it more studying alone. Discussions helped me trouble shoot and get better ideas how to approach the problems generally. I can explore and use ML and sklearn on my own, which thankfully seems to be a goal of this professor. No material could be left out, but when more videos, better longer time estimate for the week would be nice.

    Unfortunately, for me, this course (not the specialization) seems to be a “review of” Applied Machine Learning in Python” rather than “teaching” Applied Machine Learning in Python. Some codes used in the notebook were skipped by the instructor.

    I would not recommend this course except for week 1. According to some forum posts, not only is this course a bit outdated (needs fixes to many parts and they haven’t fixed them for at least 2 years), seemingly small but crucial parts of the assignments are not covered in the lecture videos which were very frustrating and time wasting to figure out (4 week course ended up being 10 weeks for me with a result of 93,4% final grade). Combing through the videos turned out to be futile and of course, relying on external sources such as stackoverflow was also not very helpful since the questions asked need to be extremely specific to the course. Even simply submitting the assignments were met with difficulties; and it’s similar forum posts week after week.

    It was a good introduction to machine learning. The assignments and quizzes were well designed to encourage self learning, which in my opinion is one of the most valuable skills an aspiring data scientist could learn. All in all I am very satisfied with the course and I look forward to enrolling in the other courses in the specialization.
