Getting Started with AI using IBM Watson
Mayyas N –
It’s informative for businesses if they considering starting implementing AI in their companies. But for students it’s just boring.
Brice L –
This class is a big promotion for IBM Watson! You will not learn any operational skills… It stays still intersting to know what Watson can do and how it is applied in the real world. However I find the class a bit disappointing.
Izhar U H –
An Excellent Course for entering into the future. (Artificial intelligence the future of the World). Here you will gain all those things which is the first step toward future.
Titose M C –
I’d really like to jump in on learning how to develop AI and then learn of the services you provide after
Nosipho D –
Very informative. Interesting case studies on how to apply AI. I will keep learning.

You get an overview of the different services IBM Watson offers, but you don’t really get to see it for yourself. There are some labs, but it doesn’t do a good job of explaining what you’re doing. ESPECIALLY, the lab for the final exam. You just follow the steps with no explanation for what is happening or why you’re doing what you’re doing. It even tells you to take screenshots as part of the exam. Not only did I have no understanding of what the content I was screenshotting meant, there was nowhere for me to submit the screenshots. Of the three courses in this specialization, this was the weakest. I took nothing away from it. Obviously, I performed well on the quizzes, but a day later I didn’t learn enough to even recall what features work for what purpose. This class could be done by just going to IBM’s website and learning about the different programs. Not worth my time. The first and third course are much better.

It’s really helpful.

Great overview introduction

IBM is the Magician of AI !!!
Suleimon T O –
Very interesting course for beginners, it’s intuitive and broad range, definitely
Marvin O S –
Good overview of benefits
Mumtaz U –
I liked it, but I felt towards the beginning of the course it was an advertisement for IBM, like every module would just talk about the different softwares provided by IBM AI, it did not tell me how the AI does it, just how I could use it for my company, which is worthless because I do not work. I wanted to learn the techniques and models used by the AI, the process of how it is done and not the solutions adopted by companies around. It just felt like IBM was advertising their solutions, I wanted to learn from a technical viewpoint
Brian M –
I really liked getting an opportunity to see all of the aspects IBM Watson has to offer. I would have enjoyed more applications like the final activity using Watson Discovery.
Purnima R B –
Abundant use cases help to understand Watson AI services.
Terri S –
Good material in course however courses needs updates – still refers to Rank and retrieve in the earlier sessions
Paul P –
I love this Course, Watson is an amazing, and powerful tool.
Tyson J C –
Don’t get me wrong, the first course was very eye–opening with the possibilities of what and how you can implement AI in a real use case scenario. The second course expanded on this professional track and did an excellent job with providing a simple, yet profound way to use the Watson resources and access the power of what is possible. Loved it!! I’m definitely considering more AI courses with IBM now to learn towards my career in finance.
Lara K –
Good as an overview of Watson services and use cases. However, I would prefer a bit more hands–on exercises and practice opportunities.
Shuchita G –
Patel P A –
Enjoyed a lot. Wonderful material, lots of knowledge addition.
Brandon S –
Very informative course on Watson! I’m very excited and happy that I’ve gained insight into the Watson products.

Very interesting and useful. Some of the instructions could be more streamlined and more in detail. But over all a great experience.

The best course from Coursera Team that provides the introduction of IBM Watson AI Services, from full explanation of each features built–in the IBM Watson AI to full coverage of IBM Watson AI service’s application for benefit in the real–world problem case.
Stefan H –
too much marketing

a good course in AI and a lot of information about where can we use AI
Tanuja S –
The course has been very thoughtfully planned to convey the need of the hour, and the way AI can streamline the functioning of industries and businesses across different sectors.
Lu Y –
Not here to watch ads from IBM
Only marketing to Watson services.
Sabine U M –
The Discovery pdf file and exercise created an errror message which I could not resolve. The Twitter feed was the wrong text (for image analysis from a previous module, not for discovery module). The error message was related to not being able to process the data file output. I have looked at the default example instead.

Great easy to learn course making learning AI exciting!
Ayan R C –
This is a short and basic course that everyone with and without programming skills can go through to upskill the latest AI technology that uses IBM Watson. It is a wonderful training course recommended for all who would like to know about Artificial Intelligence that uses IBM Watson. Thank you.
Pier L R –
A lot of marketing material, and practical exercises are quite short.

I hope future employers value my efforts to learn these technologies!
John S –
Learned a lot about the capabilities of Watson, but it didn’t feel very hands on. Wish there had been more examples and demos like in the first course. Pretty good though, can’t wait to get more knowledge!
Sami G –
Great learning !!
Shalom D –
The last part doesn’t work smoothly(the discovery exercise).
Svetozar A –
Gaurab R P –
well designed and interesting to learn.
Kaleem M –
This course was entirely too long and redundant in my opinion. The use cases of Watson are very helpful and the interaction on IBM however it should be a lot more hands on and less repetitive
MAHIMA A –
This was an awesome and well–designed course. I got to know a lot about IBM Watson and its various fields.
Shafaq F M –
I enjoyed this course a lot and was extremely informative.
Anna S –
It was interesting, but at times it felt like an IBM advertisement and I was not the biggest fan of the last week at all.
Jose L P C –
Excellente course and well design content
This is a very good course if you want some insights and start or upgrade your career to an AI Specialist.
Excellent Course for beginners
Chi W K –
I love IBM!
Dan M –
Promotional and not practical course, pretty much most of the assignments can be solved without listening to lectures.
Rochelle N A –
Would’ve been better if it didn’t feel like a long sales pitch/demo.
The course was very informative, engaging and easy to understand. Thanks
Adolfo C Y –
Useful to know the services from IBM
Jaswanth R –
Concepts are so clear for a starter
Bernard D V –
Sure, it’s very focused on IBM and Watson Services. But it is impressive, well explained and with a lot of good stories. Excellent course in order to approach AI
Alexander B F –
Very informative of what I can do with IBM Watson, how it helped a lot of companies and what I can use it with.
Robert Y –
Watson AI is a very powerful tool, that can flexibly be put to work with little (or no) programming experience.
A great introduction to all the services provided by IBM Watson also, I got to use the Watson Discovery practically and the quiz difficulty is definitely upped by a notch compared to the Introduction to AI course

It’s easy to undestand and apply the knowledge obtained!
