    Learning Big Data and Language from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology offered through Coursera exposed me to the possibilities of Natural Language Processing in Linguistics, which is an ever growing field in the space of artificial intelligence and speech recognition. Putting these skills learned through the course in use, I've been able to undertake a very big project successfully.

    Terrible grammar used by a speaker, terrible accent that makes it impossible to understand in most parts. Transcription is also inaccurate in many parts.

    Content is great but "the delivery" is unacceptable.

    It’s an interesting course. However, if it more of mathematical Ground would be welcome. Tools to handle big data could also be more thoroughly described.

    The lectures are fine. But the research aspect of it on discourse analysis is too simplistic for current relevant issues.
