wonderful course

Would have liked examples in the finance/economic space. Also, perhaps greater discussions about how we can decide on the appropriateness of the number of hidden layers and nodes for Neural nets. Otherwise it gave me a great breadth of knowledge to go try and apply for loan level modeling techniques.

Prof. Ng was awesome in this course. He really spent time making machine learning understandable to novice like me new to ML concepts. He spend time going into the details and explaining the concepts. It was a great experience for me and I strongly recommend this course to anyone who wants to acquire knowledge and apply machine learning in their current profession or as a new career.

A very effective introduction to the gigantic subject of Machine Learning, this Andrew Ng course has just the right balance of mathematical rigor and intuitive understanding to help one in beginning to appreciate the subject with all it's technicalities as well as all its applications that have the power to change the world. Thank You, Andrew Ng.
