One of the excellent courses in deep learning. As stated its advanced and enjoyed a lot in solving the assignments. Looking forward for more such courses especially in Natural language processing.

- Pradeep Bhatt

The hardest, yet most satisfying course I've ever taken in deep learning, by the end of the course I was doing stuff that was borderline sci-fi and that was just "introduction" to deep learning

- Swati Joshi

Great course. Even though I've done Andrew Ng's ML course twice and completed his Deep Learning Specialization, I learned a lot of new things in this Intro Course of AML specialization.
