Amazing course. For a beginner like me, it was a shot in the arm. Excellent presentation very lively and engaging. Hope to see the instructor soon in a another course. Thanks so much. I learned a lot.

This is an awesome module. It will open up so much inside story of ML process which is core of the topic with such a simplicity. It greatly increases my interest into this topic and this course :)

An interesting and short but intensive course. It introduces a lot of new (to me) tech such as Tensor Flow and Big Query. I learned a lot in a short time, but felt that if I hadn't already had a bit of a grounding in ML I might have been lost. During the course there were a few references to it being part of a specialisation, but I couldn't find what this was and it was not made clear before I signed up that this was the case. Perhaps that is why in the beginning it felt a bit like coming into something half way through, Overall then, interesting and useful, but would benefit from a bit of a clearer setup and explanation of how it fits into the overall Google cloud catalogue.

This course gave me a practical understanding on how machine learning works , how an ML model can be optimized with minimum error and enhance the performance of the model in a better way . I like to thank Google Cloud Team who has taught this course in very interesting way and I'm looking forward to learn the next course of this specialization.

wish they teach you more of the programming side of things and knowing exactly what and why to upload different libraries and or show us how to build these in the labs. Not the first ML course, I've taken but some new people may be a bit confused on the python / setting up / sql even if they have a general knowledge to python and sql.

Excellent course content. Would be 5 stars if the labs forced you to think about how you could apply your theoretical learnings. Unfortunately, labs already have all the code populated, so you just end up running things with the illusion that you have understood everything. Give us labs that require us to solve a problem!

Very useful intro to data processing, specially the hashing mechanism to partition the datasets.
The last lab was confusing because the data might have some invalid value. in the jupyter notebook, the sin, and arcsin values were not getting computed (probably?) as I got warning from python .

I was initially considered that it was too mathematical. But you really don't need to understand the minute details and just get the concepts. good for someone like me that doesn't intend to code but be able to understand enough of challenges and the process for developing models.

Lesson Learnt: Best model might not be a good model in real world! Generalization is important!
The labs had issue of disconnection. My jupylab notebooks were frequently disconnecting from the server and I had to manually reconnect them to kernel.

Great introductory to Machine Learning, although the history part is a bit overwhelming for me because he is using a lot of jargon and there is a lack of visualization. But, the rest of the course is great, especially about the sampling.

Little challenging than the first part of the specialization but thoroughly enjoyed deep diving into understanding basic concepts of Machine Learning without being overwhelmed. Great for a person who does not have any previous knowledge.

Good but does require quite a lot of knowledge of Python and coding, which was not exactly expected from the start (though it's a good balance between complexitx and ease-to-pass for the course even without this)

Will be good to dumb it down further. The last part is good, the first two parts can have better examples and find easier ways to explain the theoretical concepts for folks who have not heard these before.

Tensorflow Playground is awesome to understand some of the theory of Deep Neural Nets !
Theory on creating/managing models was good too.
The labs with BigQuery were not that interesting too

I got a whole idea on how to work on data from scratch. Model selection, generalization, splitting of data and performance metric were few things I learned from this course.

Great presenter. High energy engaging. The material is more difficult and to develop intuition of why the sampling needs to result in constant RMSE didn't come across.

Overall it was great, and very instructive. However, the Short History of ML was a little bit confusing with too many unexplained words and too many details too early.

This course is more focused on technical side of using Google Cloud system.
It would be better if students could do mini-projects so that we get used to handling GCS.

Liked the way the datasplit using BigQuery is explained, but would appreciate if more references and links to explore BigQuery is provided at end of the video.

Found only loophole in the description of why rmse not used for classification but i guess that was my lack of statistical skills . Anyways Thank You Google.

Very informative and well-prepared course, the only downside is, other than quizzes, there is no user input involved. Highly recommended nonetheless.

Nice course, kind of introductory but necessary for someone who has no knowledge about Machine Learning basics and most relevant algorithms so far.

Very good course for beginners!
-1 star because I find labs to be less informational and practical and course to be more theoretical that practical!

The instructor made several mistakes in reading the code like when he read the size of the file and interpreted as the number of records.

some ideas discussed need further elaboration, and there should be a set of slides provided or notes that summarizes the key concepts.

High level of Machine learning algo and its implementation in cloud using Bigquery. simple but required in upcoming courses.
