machine learning Awards Best Course Overall
- Highly recommended as your first course to dive into Machine Learning.
- Although it requires hard work, the course is very accessible for beginners.
- Presented by an expert in the field of Machine Learning and online teaching.
- Well designed with simple explanations and comprehensive content.
- Focused on the logic behind Machine Learning rather than programming and maths.
- Experienced developers may consider lectures and assignments to be too basic.
- Taught in Matlab/Octave, not Python.
- Lacks practical examples.
Andrew Ng is Co-founder of Coursera, an and Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University. His machine learning course is the MOOC that had led to the founding of Coursera! In 2011, he led the development of Stanford University's main MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) platform and also taught an online Machine Learning class to over 100,000 students, thus helping launch the MOOC movement and also leading to the founding of Coursera. Ng also works on machine learning, with an emphasis on deep learning. He had founded and led the "Google Brain" project, which developed massive-scale deep learning algorithms. This resulted in the famous "Google cat" result, in which a massive neural network with 1 billion parameters learned from unlabeled YouTube videos to detect cats. Until recently, he led Baidu's ~1300 person AI Group, which developed technologies in deep learning, speech, computer vision, NLP, and other areas.
