Stanford Machine Learning Course

After 3 months of back to (online) school, I received my Stanford Machine Learning Course Certificate.
I haven’t been back to school for many years and some of the math (linear algebra and calculus) needed a serious refresher.
This course gives you a great overview of the field of machine learning and is very hands-on.
I loved the character recognition exercise where a neural network was employed. Overall this course gives you a great introduction into machine learning with Andrew Ng who is an accomplished instructor.
Expect to spend about 4-8 hours or more a week on this course, especially if you need to read up on some of the math or are not familiar with Octave (open source MathLab equivalent).
