Very detailed content and amazing projects !
This is the best program I have come across. My potential has increased a lot by doing this course.
Good syllabus and having a hands-on is an added advantage. It's very beneficial to my learning. Have come across lot of trainings and courses throughout my 10 years of experience. This course distinguishes from others by having clarity on the topics that were explained. As we know, a picture portrays 1000 words, creating a video series to explain everything plays a vital role in making the concepts clear to all learners. Thank you for all the creators of this course.
It's a really good nanodegree with a lot of useful content. Must take for anyone willing to spare some time and the money. It's totally worth its price too.
We need more math theory
Learn to apply machine learning models to real-world challenges across a wide array of fields; an essential data science skill!
Work on projects designed by industry experts, build recommendation systems, and deploy solutions to the cloud.
