Actually I found this course more practical in the sense all solutions were built from scratch (in Ng's course you start with template code and fill in the key parts). It's useful to see for yourself that working classifiers can be built from scratch, and to go through some pitfalls of building them.

Thanks a lot Prof. Yaser for all you've put into this course. It's one of the best I've taken. The derivations were precise enough to help with understanding, without unnecessary details. The uniform "learning diagram" will be useful for approaching learning problems systematically. Building small learning systems yourself was good reassurance that this all actually works.

Thanks again, and all the best.
