Thank you for this awesome course! It is my first machine learning couse. May be better if provide Python alternative for assignments. Since MATLAB is not free and octave does not have a large population.

It is a really helpful course in teaching me the basic of machine learning. Instead of just telling me how to implement things in existing library, the courses taught me the concepts of how to develop and solve machine learning problems. Definitely the best online course I have taken.

This course gives a detailed insight in how some machine learning algorithms work and how you can apply them effectively. It has a good balance between theory and getting hands-on experience which I very much liked.

Throughout this 11-week course by Prof. Ng, I have gained a complete (or I think I have gained) overview of machine learning. Here, I would like to express my sincere thankfulness to Prof. Ng. Thank you very much for all these vivid and clear explanation!
