New Machine Learning Course on Coursera

machine learning

Coursera has just opened a new version  of the course “Machine Learning” in the on demand format.

Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome. Machine learning is so pervasive today that you probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it. Many researchers also think it is the best way to make progress towards human-level AI. In this class, you will learn about the most effective machine learning techniques, and gain practice implementing them and getting them to work for yourself.

The on demand format allows you to work through the materials at your own pace. All materials are available at any time, and there are no deadlines for exercises or assignments.

One thought on “New Machine Learning Course on Coursera”

  1. Hi there,

    I recently read your article on Machine Learning with Coursera, and I thought it would be a good idea to reach out to you and make you aware of our “Online and Digital” and “Science, Maths & Technology” categories. All Futurelearn are free and are set up by leading Universities to give our learners one of the best online learning experiences on the web.

    Some examples include:

    -Begin Robotics
    -Monitoring Climate From Space (run by the European Space Agency)
    -Introduction To Cyber Security
    -Creative Coding
    -The Science of Nuclear Energy

    Please don’t hesitate to email me if anything there sounds interesting for your site, and if it’s not too much trouble, please include a link to us in the future when discussing online courses or on the Machine Learning article.

    All the best,
    Christian
