recommended for all the 21st centuary students who might be intrested to play with data in future or some kind of work related to make predictions systemically must have good knowledge of this course
Issues of every stage of the construction of learning machine model, as well as issues with several different machine learning methods are well and in fine yet very understandable detail explained.

The lecture material is great, but the quiz material is in need of updating. R and it's packages have gone through many updates since the problems were written so it is sometimes difficult to reproduce their results even with running the sample codes given after getting the answer correct.
This course allows you to implement practical solutions using machine learning algorithms without having to know the mechanisms behind the calculations in detail. Unfortunately questions in the discussion forum were quite rare and many questions were not resolved during this course.

The course covers few important topics in R like cross validation, decision trees, random forest etc. which comes in very handy for a data science aspirant. It expects the participant to have a descent knowledge in R. Overall, I am pretty satisfied with this course. Thanks!
This course is brief but it has the 2 best ingredients for having a really decent first step in Machine Learning:
1) It covers a broad group of different algorithms
2) It provides reference material for those in which you want to get deeper.
Really good job in this course.

I liked the course and found it informative, but wish there were more stuff on unsupervised learning neural network algorithms (SOMs). Learning about most used algos are great, but would also like to know other machine learning algos that are used concurrently.

Great course! The hands-on approach make it very useful for one to start doing some very interesting analysis in real life! Thanks a lot! You guys could only make some efforts in updating some classes and packages used in quizzes. But the rest was great!

Lectures were not very detailed.
Quizzes were good and challenging, but too many times the results didn't match the answers even when the random seed was set right
Final project should have been more challenging with more models to build and compare

Very good course. The content can be enriched with some more technical details behind the various techniques. There needs to be 1 more course on Practical Machine Learning in the specialization as 1 course is far too less for such a vast topic.

Good course to get only the basics of machine learning. The assignments and quizzes are great but the lecture material is very brief and short. The references provided throughout the lectures are probably the best source of more information.

Great intro to machine learning. Several algorithms with some ideas on sampling and pre-processing techniques are covered. Adding a textbook as done with some of the other data science classes would help, but other resources are referenced.

Excellent course, very practical. Found the project challenging as preprocessing data required some knowledge of the limitation of the RandomForest method i.e. both train and test needs to have same classes of data with similar levels.

Nice course that tries to fit a lot of material into four weeks. Due to this, the material is not so deep, although pointers are given to where the student can find additional information related to each subject covered by the course.

Pretty good overview of how to build some types of machine learning models through the caret library in R, but not much in terms of the theoretical underpinnings or why one method is better than the other or where it is most suitable.

Some problems with current and old versions of packages and problems with using other packages on different operating systems. Though that did also help foster an independent research style which will help me in the future.

GREAT course! There are all base of machine learning field. The limitation is blur between basic and detail especially maths. This course, sometimes , show the maths that make you confuse if you're not familiar with them.

This course gives an overview of a broad subject. My personal feeling is that there could have been some more indepth examples/case studies to demonstrate how to apply these methods and analyse /interpret the outcomes.
It needs more mathematical detail. Otherwise is a fairly comprehensive class, and a great tutorial on the caret package. I recommend it, if you need to refresh concepts and get some practical exposure to caret.
It is a nice introduction, but the course is not as good as the other ones from the specialization. Nonetheless, it is just right to get into ML, understand key concepts, applications, algorithms and practice.

It's a great course but I hope you add a few things. The course about the machine learning algorithm is so basic. Please get deep into the machine learning algorithm. Then it would become the perfect course.

In my opinion this course is highly technical and demanding in nature compared with the others. The learning experience is good and coursera.org has given a opportunity for customization ! thank you Coursera

Very good summary of strengths/weaknesses of various machine learning algorithms. This lecturer's style and production quality is much higher than in the previous two courses in the specialization series.

A well descriptive experience for this subject; really steps into how to handle information and how to extract info from them. You need to be prepared with Regression Models, it's the base of it.

I learned a lot in this class. There are slight gaps from the depth of material covered in the lectures to the quizzes and assignment. If you're good at researching online, you'll be fine.

This is a well thought about course which focuses on familiarizing the learner on the concepts of Machine Learning and develops a love in the learner towards predictive modeling. Thank you

It is still kind of hard for a learner to understand the methods. But it gives me a overall introduction of machine learning and I will have further learning in the future.
