A course that interested me in going for higher studies in this area. Couldn't believe I had created a handwriting recognizer. OCR was another awesome project. The projects weren't too tough but good enough for a beginner. The course is best for beginners wanting to experience the world of ML. I disagree with people about the course being watered down. It's meant for newbies and not an advanced course on the subject. Don't forget to check out kaggle when you're done with the course.
I took this course to learn concepts from functional programming. Thinking in functional sense is often helpful for a programmer. What also attracted me was the fact that it was being taken by a language design veteran. However, the course used scala which is a hybrid of functional and oop. It was pretty tough to get a hang of the assignments. I used to check up the discussion forums if I got really stuck. What was new for me was a reference to the design of computer programs by peter norvig in a lecture. It was awesome to see courses mentioning other courses in their lectures. I hope to see many such linkings happening among other courses. But overall the course was good.
One of the best courses I took on AI. The Professor was pretty awesome with this slides. The course illustrator is to be especially thanked for that. I really loved the projects. Making your pacman learn by playing more games is a brilliant idea but tough to implement. This course made you do just that. I would be eagerly waiting for part 2. I would suggest knowing a bit of python before taking up the course.
