A very deep and comprehensive course for learning some of the core fundamentals of Machine Learning. Can get a bit frustrating at times because of numerous assignments :P but a fun thing overall :)
Hats off to the team who put the course together! Prof Guestrin is a great teacher. The course gave me in-depth knowledge regarding classification and the math and intuition behind it. It was fun!

This is the best course ever that can happen in ML...I did not know anything, but after taking this specialization, my understanding of ML has dramatically improved
Would recommend without any reservation - Prof Gustrin and Prof Fox are the best!!!

During this course, I learned many new things like logistic regression, decision tree algorithm, boosting algorithm, etc. I would like to suggest this course to all those who want to learn about machine learning and make a career in data science.

Amazingly structured course. When I started the course, I did not realise that there would be so much content like Boosting and Stochastic Gradient Descent. It is truly a fantastic course with hands on learning. Cheers to Prof Carlos and team
I come to know how can i applym machine learning conceps i real world scenarios . The instructors are so nice and always explaining in simple methods. Nice teaching abilities.. Glad to guided under this kind of instructors. Nice experience.

The course is really well structured and gives a solid understanding in the latest approaches in Machine Learning. However I would also like to see in this course more sophisticated math, because it matters and I think there are important.

Very well done course.
Would be nice to have many more very short examples during the lectures that match the formulas. This would help me understand the formulas much better since I do not have a calculus or linear algebra background.

Excellent and intuitive introduction to classification.Certainly a lighthouse in a rather overwhelming and chaotic learning scenario of machine learning we have now a days(Highly recommended for both mathematics and programming student)
by Leonardo D•
This course covered very interesting aspects of real-world applications for machine learning. From my point of view, the theory was very clear an valuable, until that point that the programming assignments closed the cycle beautifully.

I enjoy the lectures. The professor has a good speaking and teaching style which keeps me interested. Lots of concrete math examples which make it easier to understand. Very good slides which are well formulated and easy to understand
by Manuel G•
Really awesome course. Nice balance between practical uses, theory, and implementation projects. It's good they kept the "optional" videos for the more detailed discussion instead of just removing that material. Totally recommend it.

An interesting series of Lectures in the important topic of Classification. The business case approach followed by the instructors provides great help to apply the required theoretical knowledge and further elaborate these methods.

Challenging and Exciting Course. Lots of ML concepts (Decision Trees, AdaBoost, Ensembles, Stochastic gradient, loglikelyhood etc. ) are introduced and i believe this course is of extreme importance in laying the fundamentals of ML.

The course is well designed for both beginners and experts . The concepts are well explained and the assignments are really challenging. Best thing is , it talks more from practical aspects . The optional sections are really good.

Another incredible course from these two professors. They are incredible at explaining complex concepts. The videos and slides are incredibly helpful. And the exercises are challenging. I just wish Pandas was used as default.
by Ahmed N A•
The best course I could find to get a strong hold of the basics of machine learning. Presented in very easy to follow steps with thorough coverage of all the concepts necessary to understand the big picture of each algorithm.
by David E•
very useful course : covers a range of very practical and useful topics I had heard about but didn't fully understand until taking this course. Some highlights stochastic gradient, boosting, and precision-recall trade offs.

After watching Emily's Fox Regression wondered how much better could this professor be...But Mr Guestrin is truly great. Fantastic job, well explained difficult concepts. Probably the best classification course out there

very good course
very good and intelligent instructor
overall very good content and passion course i had learned a lot
very good and awesome efforts by instructor carlose guestin well done
very happy with this course :)
by Iñaki D R•
Excelent course !! The perfect choice if you want to discover for the first time basic classification algorithms, get some practice and knowledge with them, and at the end dive into more complex classification analisys
by Wenxin X•
This specialization overall is pretty good. Personally I feel like Classification talks more about concepts and important ideas and requires less on coding comparing to Regression. Learned a lot! Love Carlos and Emily!

Very nice course for beginners to enhance the knowledge.. Thanks to Resp. Sir for your clear view for each concept which helps me lot. Thanks to Team & university of Washington.. Really enjoy the study in each module.

Carlos is just an amazing teacher. I love his style of teaching, and his case-study approach is simply fantastic. I also liked the little jokes he made to make the harder parts of the course a bit more bearable. :)
by Maria C•
One of the best online machine learning courses I have taken. Excellent explanation of many techniques on Classification. A great combination of theory and hands-on examples. Thank you, Professors Fox & Guestrin.
