This course was my first and I felt that professor Ng was able to explain everything very well with the use of graphs. This course is focused on implementing machine learning algorithms in the real world than the maths, which are left as optional algorithms. The programming assignments, while feeling like following detailed instructions, showed the power of machine learning in many ways (I won't spoil the assignments).
Professor Sedgewick gave great explanations on the various algorithms showed, with interactive diagrams. Also, the programming assignments are interesting. While it's not too hard to get a somewhat good grade for them, getting full marks is a challenge that really gets people thinking on how to optimize algorithms. The quizzes, while sometimes posing hard questions, tend to be simulations and calculations.
