I don't think this is a study project, but I face with it's real satiation of real problem. The problem isn't common in business as my experiences, but it's proved that the Machine Learning can handle any problem on the world if you know the processes and have experiences some tools well. I challenged with the competition and it put me to eager to improve my outcome. It's great.

An excellent course. The Capstone Project truly challenges all skills taught on the course. "Real data" is used - messy, substantial - and you have to ultimately explore the data, construct a predictive model from the data, and then report on your findings... Your method and the analytical technology you use, is totally up to you. From Python to R to Spark to Azure ML - your choice. You are judged on the objective score of your model on hold out data. This is a great end to a very fulfilling, useful course. Much of which I use in my Day job already... The whole program is probably worth 20 times its current cost. Thank you. Its been good.
