There is a lot of material to cover however, I think the professor and his crew do a good job on touching the most important points. The discussion group is also extremely helpful. I would suggest adding either more materials or recommended links for those willing to dig further into the mathematics details of some topics (RBMs for instance), as the material shown in the slides is way too sparse sometimes. The practical assignments were well planned and extremely useful and helpful to master some of the concepts, thanks for that. I am in the process of cleaning up the code in a way that I believe would be easier for students to understand them. I will contribute them back to the course in case there is any interest. Thanks!

very good

The excellent lecture on NN. It covers a wide variety of issues on NN throughout. However, it is sometimes difficult to understand. More explanation on basic concepts and the maths behind would help.

The course covers the cornerstones of neural nets architectures, learning, optimization and regularization techniques. Helps to get a grip on the terminology of the field, and to develop an intuition of how things work.
