Thoroughly enjoyed this course. Learned about OpenCV a bit and added to my small knowledge of Python. The ability to know how to train Watson to do optical recognizition will be invaluable.
This is one of the best course by IBM. I specifically enjoyed Computer Vision modelling and its related project and also enjoyed the way team put in effort for designing this course.

Although learnt alot the course seemed somewhat disjointed with a couple of syllabus seeming missing (promotion to the web). the final assignment was a not as challenging as I would have expected.
by Duncan G•
The final practical was difficult to navigate as Watson threw up errors. I'm left in limbo and can't complete because there is no one else's submissions to review.

Please can you update the steps in the python code to deploy the web application. I think some steps haven't been updated such as the python version

The course is good but outdated. Many stuff need to be edited, it has been difficult for me to solve the problems and bugs of the course myself.

The content is great, however there were problems with Open CV affecting the model functioning.
by Alberto S N•
Too many errors in the course material and a lack of adequate help fixing the problems.

It was an amazing course, however i did face some problems with following the labs.

This course's last assignment is with error. I am unable to submit the assignment.

More practical knowledge but less technical knowledge.

I hope they fix the platform they are using

Doesn't show nothing about computer vision

I was looking forward to taking this class, but I'm very disapointed. I'm only halfway through it and really struggle to continue. The instructor just reads his text like a robot, transitioning from one subject to another in the same sentance and without any change in tone, making it all really confusing. It's the same for the slides: first, they are not great. And also, sometimes a slide only appears for a split second, but since the instructor takes absolutely no pause between two subjects, it leaves no time to even catch a glimpse of its content. The provided notebooks are also very repetitive, contain some errors, and contain either too many details (ex. PIL/openCV in week 2) or too little. And finally, IBM CV Studio's app seems cool, but I would first like to learn how to do CV on my own through code rather than through a proprietary web app.

I have participated in many courses on IBM but this is the first course that I feel very bad. The only good point is the first 2 weeks where they teach you the insights of Pillow and OpenCV. The rest is terrible. I feel like the knowledge is given without a clear explanation. The LAB Section is probably only for Python experts, you won't understand what they do at all if you haven't learned Pytorch before. Just run cell, look at the result, then run cell, look at the result, run cell, and so on... The final project is just like a slideshow no more no less, you follow the steps and show out results, done. You will not learn anything from data-processing step to refine-model step. I gave 2 Stars simply because I was inherently sympathetic to IBM before, but with this course itself, all was disappointment.

This course has some of most interesting labs from all this certificate. However, they are full of bugs and outdated information. I spent hours searching for tips and workarounds in the foruns. By the way all my questions are still there waiting for answers.
Overall, it was a frustating experience mixed with some some interesting technologies and approaches.

Course content is good. Too many issues & errors in getting CV Studio working. Submitting assignment had been the most time consuming and frustrating task. People are struggling to submit the assignment and discussion forums are full with these system errors.
by Veronica A T S•
I have a lot of problems and issues with this course. And the last 2 questions of the final assignment are not very easy to understand what is it you want. My experience has been so bad I am just glad it is over
by Richard I•
Good course, but terribly maintained Lab and Capstone project. Lab has been broken for two weeks. Coursera has however agreed to cancel the last monthly charge, but the labs need some serious TLC…
by Lucas S•
The cource content was a good overview of nerual networks and thier use in computer vision. The labs however where sloppily put together, and in most cases, not formatted correctly.
by Jan S•
Some of the practice notebooks don't seem finished. CVStudio is very unreliable and doing the final project didn't really work (lots of comments in the forum but no action)
by Kieran B•
Great tech, great teachers, completely let down by course material that is almost always broken, out-of-date, or buggy.
by Massimo B•
many problems with CVstudio and skills network lab

Worst course so far I've done in Coursera (and I think this one must be my tenth or eleventh). If you are interested in getting any kind of concepts or explanation on why and how computing vision works this course will be completely useless for you.
This is just a collection of pretty superficially explained recipes and I guess its only value is to be able to show off a pointless badge from the not so prestigious IBM (at least in my country Span, and I know what I'm talking about I've been an IT professional for more than tewnty years)
You will not learn anyhing from here but some familiarity with Jupyter notebooks, python and a lot of suffering with that crappy IBM online tool
by Panos K•
Very bad course, if you have a decent knowledge on the subject, then its not for you. On ther other hand if you are novice then you shouldnt start with that. However its greatest problem is that you must use a specific platform (CV studio) to train your models, which doesnt work properly, therefore you have a hard time to finish the course. Although i must congratulate coursera support center who helped me a lot to overcome this issue and claim my badge at the end.

I am very dissapointed with the course. idm's vision.skills.network works very poorly. i reported a few bugs but hadn't received and feedback from their support team. I couldn't complete course assignments with this bugs and after being charged second months fee for the course i had to give up. Unfortunately there is no refund option either. Coursera's suport on this metter is very poor too. waste of money.
