The course is "chapter 2"of the Machine Learning certification from this university. The start of this course was interesting. Videos are great and iPython assignements may prove difficult. But all in all I found this course much less interesting than the "Foundatins course (chapter 1 of the specialization. It looses its objectives very fast and basically what you will learn is to code "gradient descent" algorithms on and on....after listening to hours of videos that will have no use in your daily activities. Quite disappointed, especially now that I know that the GraphLab librairy used for the course is not a free package and the home company was acquired by Apple.... I intented to do the whole Machine Learning specialization of Uni of Washington on Coursera but actually..I won't.
Y. Nicodeme completed this course, spending 10 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
