The course is broad and pretty decent introductory course, but there is a number of presentation and course design flaws. First, while I'm not sure whether it is solely a Coursera's typical marketing approach to prevent users from refusing the course just because of the minimum amount of time required, or authors' unintended misestimations, but the actual time needed to complete the course is a way more than listed at the course home page, especially assignments. Often the time needed only to run an assignment training with no coding exceeds the given estimate. To get the value from the course one should be prepared to allocate much more time (2x-3x in total). Second, the course is too broad to be called an introductory one but too shallow in terms of math/practical/reasoning details to be named a deep one.

OBJECTIVES This course teaches participants the following skills: Identify use cases for machine learning Build an ML model using TensorFlow Build scalable, deployable ML models using Cloud ML Know the importance of preprocessing and combining features Incorporate advanced ML concepts into their models Productionize trained ML models PREREQUISITES To get the most of out of this course, participants should have: Completed Google Cloud Fundamentals- Big Data and Machine Learning course OR have equivalent experience Basic proficiency with common query language such as SQL Experience with data modeling, extract, transform, load activities Developing applications using a common programming language such Python Familiarity with Machine Learning and/or statistics Google Account Notes: • You'll need a Google/Gmail account and a credit card or bank account to sign up for the Google Cloud Platform free trial (Google services are currently unavailable in China).
I have never regretted enrolling in the Inspiring Leadership through Emotional Intelligence course. It has indeed been a course that has provided me with new knowledge, ideas, and a broader perspective relating to;life in general. How could I be in a position to understand emotional, social and cognitive intelligence and their applicability in my personal life, work, and relationship? Not to mention dealing with chronic stress as a leader and the need for renewal. Professor Boyatzis is such an intelligent professor.
It explores main concepts from basic to expert level which can help you achieve better grades, develop your academic career, apply your knowledge at work or take decisions as DIY investor. Learning quantitative trading analysis is indispensable for finance careers in areas such as quantitative research, quantitative development, and quantitative trading mainly within investment banks and hedge funds. It is also essential for academic careers in quantitative finance. And it is necessary for DIY investors' quantitative trading research and development. But as learning curve can become steep as complexity grows, this course helps by leading you step by step using index replicating fund historical data for back-testing to achieve greater effectiveness.
We will learn about the Gaussian distribution for parametric modeling in robotics. The Gaussian distribution is the most widely used continuous distribution and provides a useful way to estimate uncertainty and predict in the world. We will start by discussing the one-dimensional Gaussian distribution, and then move on to the multivariate Gaussian distribution. Finally, we will extend the concept to models that use Mixtures of Gaussians.
About this course: Welcome to Course 2 - Sales Strategy - This course is designed to discuss the application of intelligence analysis in the sales planning process. And this approach contributes to integrating the sales planning process into the corporate strategy of the company because, in the strategy analysis and formulation process, we apply models, frameworks, tools, and techniques that also apply to the sales planning and management process. Therefore, the expected outcomes of this course focus on the transition from traditional to strategic sales planning, by discussing and applying the concepts recommended to support the development of the strategic guidelines. The concepts, models, tools, and techniques discussed and practiced during the course focus on the improvement of value creation from the sales function empowered by intelligence analysis, a process which typically applies in the strategy analysis front. The discussions go through how intelligence analysis can support the sales function, by providing methods to connect strategy to marketing and sales planning processes.
R is on the rise and showing itself as a powerful option in many software development domains. At its core, R is a statistical programming language that provides impressive tools for data mining and analysis, creating high-level graphics, and machine learning. R gives aspiring analysts and data scientists the ability to represent complex sets of data in an impressive way. The course is structured in simple lessons so that the learning process feels like a step-by-step guide to plotting. We start by importing data in R from popular formats such as CSV and Excel tables.
As advanced machines and computers become more and more proficient at picking investments, diagnosing disease symptoms, and conversing in natural English, it is difficult not to wonder what the limits to their capabilities are. This is why many observers believe in technology's potential to disrupt our economy--and our civilization--is unprecedented. Over the past few years, my conversations with students entering the workforce and the business leaders who hire them have revealed something important: to stay relevant in this new economic reality, higher education needs a dramatic realignment. Instead of educating college students for jobs that are about to disappear under the rising tide of technology, twenty-first-century universities should liberate them from outdated career models and give them ownership of their own futures. They should equip them with the literacies and skills they need to thrive in this new economy defined by technology, as well as continue providing them with access to the learning they need to face the challenges of life in a diverse, global environment.
The Comprehensive Programming in R Course is actually a combination of two R programming courses that together comprise a gentle, yet thorough introduction to the practice of general-purpose application development in the R environment. The original first course (Sections 1-8) consists of approximately 12 hours of video content and provides extensive example-based instruction on details for programming R data structures. The original second course (Sections 9-14), an additional 12 hours of video content, provides a comprehensive overview on the most important conceptual topics for writing efficient programs to execute in the unique R environment. Participants in this comprehensive course may already be skilled programmers (in other languages) or they may be complete novices to R programming or to programming in general, but their common objective is to write R applications for diverse domains and purposes. No statistical knowledge is necessary.
